Charcoal is a substance that absorbs toxins and is therefore a remedy that helps with detoxification. In addition to being detoxifying, it is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. With so many benefits, the ingredient may be the key to revitalizing your beauty regimen. Below we discuss how to include charcoal in your daily routine.
Do you know that this black powder is used to clean and whiten teeth? Combine a teaspoon of charcoal with water to create a paste, and brush your teeth with it for two minutes. The paste cleanses, detoxifies and whitens teeth and mouth in one step.
Oily skin mask
Due to its purifying qualities, activated carbon can help fight oil on the skin. To create a homemade mask, combine one tablespoon of activated charcoal, one of apple cider vinegar, and one of bentonite clay. Vinegar and clay also help reduce fat and this combination reduces impurities without drying the skin. Do not have time to make a mask?

Many of us have made homemade scrubs with sugar, but do you know that activated carbon works as a mild scrub? Apply the activated carbon directly to the skin to exfoliate and then rinse with warm water. The ingredient's texture helps remove dry skin and gives it a subtle glow.
Create a purifying shampoo
Charcoal also serves to clean hair. If you have excess fat or product, add a tablespoon of charcoal to your favorite shampoo to make it a purifying shampoo. Charcoal cleanses hair and scalp deeply, while reducing oil and impurities.
Purify your skin from head to toe with a detox bath, mix Epsom salts, sea salt, charcoal and a mixture of essential oils and enjoy a relaxing and purifying bath.
