Yes, charcoal! I literally just started using charcoal for teeth whitening and have used charcoal based beauty products many times in the past, so this Daily News article is perfect timing.
A super powered detoxifier, charcoal filters and absorbs toxins for a purifying effect and can often be seen in facial masks geared towards deep cleansing.
Mixed with a little water or toothpaste, and it makes a pretty decent whitening treatment for teeth. (warning, it is messssssy!!!!)
Makes me think I need to add a "Charcoal Facial" at the studio! What do you think?!?
