I have previously written a post about the use of activated Charcoal to the facemask. The mask was inspired by the charcoal mask from the brand Origins. Check the facemask here. Today, the act of activated Charcoal is for teeth whitening. Yes it may sound a little strange, but it is a very effective product. When I was younger, my parents always told my siblings and me to brush our teeth with charcoal. We were not so fond of the taste and the black mouth we had after brushing. At that time I didn’t understand the effect of charcoal, but I happily do today.
All you need is:
– Active coal
– A jar with lid
The charcoal cleans teeth like no other by removing acidic plaque, which whitens and brightens. Charcoal is completely natural and safe, so do not hesitate to try. Active charcoal can be purchased at health stores and online. Eg. here.
Remember when you are dealing with activated charcoal, it can be a bit messy and may leave black spots on things. Charcoal can be easily washed off the skin and can also be washed off clothes, but it’s best to avoid the mess. If you use charcoal for everyday it can cause tooth enamel, so limit it to 1-2 times a week.
