Owing to the fact that it functions on adsorption, activated carbon helps eliminate toxins from the body. This includes impurities that might be lurking on the surface of your skin in the form of acne or bacteria. A common remedy is a mask made of carbon, rose water, tea tree oil and aloe vera gel.
For those who prefer to use natural measures to whiten their teeth and gums, brushing with activated carbon is often a very common suggestion. Although the carbon is black, it won’t stain your teeth and over time, even helps whiten them.
Doubles up as a cosmetic
Since our great grandmothers were basically using homemade kohl before eyeliners and kajals came along, activated carbon in powder form can also double up as a jet black liner for your cat eye look or otherwise. Just mix it with a drop of water till it reaches a paste like consistency and then use an angular brush to draw a cat eye. (Highly recommended if you’re going for that dramatic/goth look.)
