Activated Charcoal – New In Beauty
When you search the internet for “how to get whiter teeth at home” or “better skincare products”, activated charcoal is an ingredient you’ll see come up more than coconut oil.
“Activated charcoal is actually carbon. Carbon acts like a magnet that attaches onto dirt and oil and pulls it from the surface.” It’s ideal for oily and acne-prone skin but all skin types can benefit from using the newly raved-about ingredient. The product can look scary because it’s thick and black. It can resemble putting concrete on your face but your skin will thank you later.
Not only is activated charcoal used for pulling toxins out of the body and treating illness, people are using it as a teeth whitener too. Be careful though when using this because it will stain anything it touches, except for your skin and teeth of course.
More recently beauty brands have released tons of different products containing the ingredient but for DIY recipes you can buy it in a capsule or powder form.
Activated charcoal is also really good for food poisoning, surprisingly. It reduces intestinal gas, prevents hangovers, lowers cholesterol levels, and treats bile flow problems during pregnancy.
