I know it sounds crazy, but I promise this advice is for a great reason! More and more people are discovering the results of adding activated charcoal to their beauty routine. How does it work? Toxins stick to the activated charcoal, therefore it makes a valid candidate for a deep cleanser and detoxifier. It’s all-natural and won’t add new chemicals to your skin and hair when you use it. Which means, less for your skin and hair to have negative reactions to’and less risk of your hair being weighed down or your pores being clogged with a new ingredient meant to clean. And since it is all natural and works we are in! Benefits of Activated Charcoal for Your Skin and Hair Reduces pores and cleanses: Toxins from the world around us clog our pores. Clogged pores = bad complexion. Activated charcoal binds to dirt and helps pull it out of your pores, making them less visible leaving your face feeling fresh and clean!  Balances oily skin: Activated charcoal may be just the ingredient you need to balance things out. Activated charcoal can pull the unwanted excess oils from your skin, leaving it smooth.  Treats acne: Depending on the specifics of your acne, severity and cause, activated charcoal may be able to help. In soap form, it’s slightly gritty, which might provide just the gentle exfoliating you need. It will also absorb oils and toxins on and below the skin.  Deep cleanser: Send your chemical-ridden deep-cleaners on a little vacation. It’s important that you don’t use this daily, as you don’t want to soak up the healthy oils and moisture your skin needs.  Soothe and heals:  Whether you were stung by a bee or had a cut from the kitchen that’s wound up infected, activated charcoal can help speed the healing and relieve the symptoms. For minor skin ailments, including insect bites, stings, cuts, scrapes and minor infections. The activated charcoal helps absorb venom and infection. It will also bring down swelling and lessen pain.  Rid your hair of toxins: Activated charcoal, when used on your hair, can pull out oil, dirt and toxins’just like it does for your skin.  Add volume to your hair: When your hair feels weighted down it’s usually not only a feeling. If you’re carrying around enough dirt, your hair will start to sag and regular shampooing may not be getting it all out. Regular shampoos remove surface dirt, but shampoo with activated charcoal will pull out even more. The other difference, and this is big, is that activated charcoal isn’t going to leave the residue regular shampoos will, so your hair will feel lighter and have more volume.  Remedy scalp conditions: Dandruff, redness, oily and itchy scalps may be relieved with activated charcoal.  The activated charcoal will work on your scalp the way it does on your skin and hair: pulling out toxins and purifying. It’s unclear how deep into the hair follicle is being cleaned, but the results should be noticeable.
