4 Ways To Use Activated Charcoal Powder

Hello sunshines,

Don't we all love DIYs especially the ones that are on Pinterest? I love DIYs especially when the products are easily available and affordable. One of the ingredients that has become the talk of the town is the activated charcoal. We all have heard about activated charcoal in our chemistry classes, it is a heated charcoal that has high adsorption properties and pulls impurities, toxins, chemicals like a magnet. Over the years it has been used for treating drug overdose, but the beauty gurus across the world have added this amazing product to their beauty cabinet. Let me tell you about the awesomeness of activated charcoal and how I use it in 4 different ways.

1. To remove blackheads: …show more content…

Even though I have tried various products, I can swear that activated charcoal has been the best in treating blackheads. Usually, I mix 1 teaspoon of activated charcoal with honey and smear it on my nose, cheek and leave it for 15 minutes and then rinse my face with water.
Why this works: Activated charcoal unclogs the pores and throws away the deeply settled impurities, pollutants, grime from the face and detoxes the face.

2. Scalp cleanser:
Scalp detox is my another favorite and recently has topped the beauty chart. I recommend scalp cleanser only once a month as it can be too strong for the hair. So to get strong, bouncy and healthy hair, I opt for 1 teaspoon of activated charcoal, few drops of tea tree oil and 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Add few drops of water and slather it on your scalp after half an hour wash your scalp with mild shampoo. I notice that this helps in clearing my scalp from buildup, flakes, and dandruff. This is perfect for the winters.
Why it works: Due to its magnet like property, it soaks up all the impurities from the scalp and improves blood circulation that helps in deep clarifying of the scalp.
