There is a reason why activated charcoal powder saw a popularity boom a few years ago. As a detoxifying substance, activated charcoal has been used in oral care, skin care, detox drinks, deodorant, and more. The powder’s benefits and ability to help draw out bacteria, toxins and dirt from your body has made this a game changer in the beauty industry.
You may have been a part of the movement or perhaps you just witnessed it, but we’re here to help you use up your charcoal with some DIY beauty remedies. So go ahead, grab it off your shelf, and let’s bring back some charcoal.
(Note: With any product, please review the ingredient list before using to ensure you are not sensitive or allergic to any of its ingredients).
Need a new face mask? Look no further than your kitchen and bathroom. The same charcoal powder used for whitening your teeth can be used for a face mask with these simple steps.
Mix 2 tsp. of water with 1 drop of lemon oil and/or tea tree oil in a bowl.
Add 1 tsp. bentonite clay to the mix and let it sit for a few minutes. Optional
Add 1 tsp. of activated charcoal powder and raw honey or aloe gel to the bowl.
Mix all ingredients until a paste is formed.
Wash your face with a facial cleanser to remove any dirt, make up and oils.
Use your fingertips to spread the mask evenly across your including forehead, nose, cheeks and chin (avoid your eyes and mouth).
Massage the face mask into your skin.
Leave to dry for 15 minutes, rinse with warm water and dry your face. Apply a moisturizer on your skin after.
This DIY face mask can be applied once or twice a week for best results without over drying your skin. We recommend reviewing the ingredients in your activated charcoal powder and testing on a small patch of skin prior to using.
This one is easy.
To help you get rid of oily, flat and dirty feeling hair, just mix in a teaspoon of activated charcoal powder into your favorite shampoo or conditioner. Then you will wash and rinse your hair as you normally would, all while reaping the benefits of added volume and cleanliness.
Working in the same way as the mask, the charcoal powder will pull out the toxins and purify your hair and possibly reduce dandruff and itchiness. You’re welcome, scalp.
This charcoal based body scrub will deeply cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify your skin. It can be used 2-3 times a week and the best part is, this scrub can be made at home, is all natural and you see exactly what ingredients you’re putting on your body!
Last but not least, our activated charcoal powder can be used in its most natural form, as a teeth whitening solution! With no substitutions or alterations needed, our charcoal powder removes bad breath and gently polishes away stains quickly and easily.
