I ordered a bottle of activated charcoal tablets on Amazon and have been adding the charcoal into some of my beauty routines.
The routine that I incorporate the charcoal into most often is brushing my teeth. The charcoal acts as a natural teeth whitener.
I store the charcoal in a mini mason jar.
First, I add a pea-sized portion of my regular toothpaste onto my brush, then I dip it into the charcoal. Then brush like normal. I find brushing with store bought toothpaste, tastes a little better than just the charcoal. Alone the taste is tolerable, it just seems like you are chewing on a grity-fire pit. Charcoal also tends to be runnier than normal toothpaste, so by mixing it, I have more control.
Even adding a little, makes a big mess. Trust me when I say that it gets everywhere.
I use the charcoal only once or twice a week, otherwise it makes my teeth more sensitive.
Stay tuned for more ways to use charcoal in your beauty routines!
