Activated charcoal beauty benefits (Dermveda)

Activated charcoal is becoming more common these days. Although it has only been approved to be used in emergency cases of overdoses and poisoning, its amazing properties have prompted people to use it for other purposes. The good thing is that it has not been found to cause any harm to the skin and there is, therefore, no harm incorporating it in your beauty regimen.

Before you start using charcoal on your skin, you need to know that you cannot use the regular charcoal used as fuel. Activated charcoal goes through a superheating process that gives it the ability to absorb toxins.

Check out some great beauty benefits of activated charcoal below:

Brighten your smile

For whiter teeth, all you need is to put some activated charcoal powder on your toothbrush then use it to brush your teeth. It’s not only good for teeth whitening but for your oral health as its antibacterial properties can fight mouth odour.

Exfoliate your skin

You already know that you should be exfoliating your skin at least twice a week. It’s even more important if your skin is oily and prone to acne. Activated charcoal draws dirt, dust, chemicals and toxins to the surface of the skin making it easier to remove them from your skin. This leaves your skin clean, feeling fresh, and rejuvenated.

Fight acne

Because activated charcoal detoxifies your skin, unclogs your pores and shrinks them, it’s, therefore, a great item to have if you are struggling with acne. Once your pores have been shrunk, they no longer produce excess oils that accumulate on the skin and trigger breakouts.

Smell fresh all-day

If you have body odour issues, you might consider getting a deodorant that has activated charcoal. Activated charcoal has the ability to trap the bacteria that causes body odour leaving you smelling fresh all day.
