For a long time, the word charcoal was associated with fuel and fire only. In 2017, though, the word has an entirely different meaning – at least for women. Charcoal products that contain the active ingredient activated charcoal have stirred the beauty industry this year. From teeth whitening products to face and hair masks, activated charcoal has become an essential ingredient in many of the latest beauty products.
For future brides especially, we highly recommend using activated charcoal products. Sure, it might not be the most pleasant thing to look at especially if you’re using it on teeth but it has shown some pretty spectacular results.
Skeptical about charcoal? Here are some proven benefits of activated charcoal that you need to read!
Detoxifies and Cleanses
Activated charcoal has properties that make it an excellent detoxifying and deep cleansing agent. Charcoal helps to combat oily skin by shrinking the pores and cleaning them from within. Face masks that use charcoal pull the dirt out of those nasty pores and get rid of black and whiteheads because of its cleansing properties.
Since charcoal is detoxifying agent, it also helps to reduce inflammation and treat acne. Any old acne spots might disappear after continuous use. Owing to its detoxifying properties, activated charcoal can also reduce redness, heal blisters and soothe itch and other skin irritations.
Gives Volume to the Hair
Charcoal is now commonly used in hair masks as well and for good reasons. It acts to give your hair a boost of volume without making them look greasy. Since shampoo can wear your hair down, a hair mask that contains activated charcoal can help add that lost volume back again.
Activated charcoal also acts as a detoxifier in the hair as well. Hair toxins are effectively removed by charcoal so that your hair retains its natural shine. Scalp skin irritations are also effectively soothed by charcoal.
Charcoal toothpaste has shown remarkable effects on the teeth. The activated charcoal in these toothpastes pulls out bacteria and toxins from your teeth, leaving behind pearly whites.
