Who doesn’t want healthy-looking skin? Skin that makes one glow! Our human body comes in contact with so many toxins, from environmental factors to food consumption, on a regular basis. So, of course, who would want to keep one’s body clean and toxin-free?

Activated charcoal is a gentle, but powerful way to gradually rid body toxins. When used correctly, activated charcoal has the power to detoxify and breathe new life into the human body. As a person consumes healthy nutrients like vitamins, ****trace minerals, and lots of water, the body distributes it to all the major internal organs first. The skin, hair and nails are the last to receive any nutrients. The hair, skin and nails will suffer when care is not given. In a beauty standpoint, these three elements are considered the shining lights of good health. In order to beautify and detoxify the skin and hair with activated charcoal, there are a few ways to approach the process.

The first, is one’s gut. Gut health is a major component of skin health. For example, if someone is dealing with skin issues such as rosacea, acne or dryness, it’s best to deal with one’s gut health. If there are symptoms such as constipation or bloating, this is a sign that something is off in the gut.

One option to handle one’s gut involves taking 500 milligrams of activated charcoal an hour before a meal. Activated charcoal can help avoid gut issues. Some experts have suggested that people take a heaping teaspoon of activated charcoal and combine it with enough water to dilute it and drink the combination immediately. This type of process can impact the issues that start in the gut, such as gas and fermentation. Suggested activated charcoal products: https://www.iherb.com/c/Charcoal.

Activated charcoal has the power to draw out the impurities that are on the top layers of the skin. In addition to cleansing daily, one should use a more potent solution for a facial mask application two to three times a week. After washing the face, use steam to open up the pores. Once the pores are open, apply a mask to the skin and let it sit for several minutes. Rinse off with warm water and a washcloth. Follow up this treatment with a moisturizing agent. For drawing out excess oil and impurities, many beauty products contain clay. A combination mask of clay and activated charcoal has a powerful ability to pull out toxins.
