Charcoal is an excellent ingredient to use in skin and beauty products. There are many skin and beauty benefits to charcoal-based products. Charcoal cleanses the pores, shrinks pores, and increases blood circulation. Charcoal is great for healing skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and boils.
Charcoal is also wonderful in cleaning toothpaste and rinses. Use a small amount of charcoal in your toothpaste. You can then add lemon juice or orange juice to the toothpaste to enhance its taste and fragrance. Add a few drops of peppermint extract to juices and use the brush to clean your teeth. Charcoal cleans and removes grime and stains from your teeth.
Using charcoal face masks is also a great way to improve the health of your skin. Using a charcoal face mask will slough off dead skin cells, toxins, and bacteria from your face. It will leave your skin feeling soft, supple, and clean. Charcoal has been used by indigenous peoples for thousands of years to treat skin problems and to remove toxins from the body.
Charcoal impurities found in our tap water are causing many health problems. These impurities include lead, mercury, pesticides, and herbicides. Hundreds of emergency rooms visit every day to the patients suffering from poisoning from these toxins. Charcoal cleansing and charcoal products are a great way to combat the toxins found in our water supply. By drinking large amounts of charcoal products or making charcoal tea you can effectively cleanse your system and rid it of impurities.
Charcoal has also shown to be an effective way of exfoliating the skin and softening the rough, dry, and flaky epidermis. Exfoliating the skin is a necessary part of anti-aging skincare because the epidermis plays a major role in skin cell regeneration. The epidermis also helps prevent wrinkles by allowing natural moisture to enter the cells, keeping them healthy and plump up. Charcoal is a great way of removing dead cells, toxins, and bacteria that can clog pores and cause premature aging.
Charcoal masks are very popular because they remove dead skin cells and pore blockages from the pores. The charcoal absorbs through the skin’s surface area and works deep to remove impurities and pores. You can add charcoal to your bath water or place charcoal pouches on your skin to absorb the product directly. You can then gently massage the charcoal into the blocked pores. The charcoal will work its way down the pore keeping dirt and grime from building up, and you can see the impurities disappear from the surface of your skin.
Another benefit of charcoal is that it can work as an antibacterial and antioxidant for the skin. As stated before toxins and bacteria can build up on the surface area of the epidermis. Toxins cause premature aging, while bacteria make the skin dull. Adding activated charcoal to the water or on the skin can help to get rid of the toxins and bacteria which cause these problems. Charcoal masks can be used twice daily for maximum cleansing results.
Charcoal toothpaste is another great way to get the maximum benefits out of charcoal products. You can find charcoal toothpaste in the health food store as well as many other places such as drugstores and department stores. To get the maximum benefit from charcoal toothpaste you can add a small amount of charcoal powder to the toothpaste and apply it to your teeth. Do not forget to brush after applying the charcoal to ensure that all the toxins have been absorbed. Activated charcoal is available at most health food stores and many pharmacies. If you want a product that works on the face just as well you can use charcoal face wash.
