Until recently, you may have only thought of charcoal as a product used for heating up your grill, but this all-natural ingredient is now heating up beauty counters everywhere. For years, charcoal has been used as an antidote to serious poisoning, but now it is being added to everything from toothpaste to facial cleansers because of its powerful purifying properties. Toxins bind to charcoal, making it ideal for removing impurities like dirt and oil from your skin or surface stains from your teeth. Luckily, there are many ways to incorporate this natural remedy into your beauty and wellness regimen to help you achieve a flawless complexion.
