My sister has always told me how life-changing activated charcoal supplements were to hangovers. They remove the toxins and heavy metals from the body. Lately I feel like people have gotten the memo and the charcoal rage is everywhere, especially beauty! From juice to masks, activated charcoal is like the beauty gold mine for detoxing and exfoliating. Here are my charcoal favorites.
Bulletproof Upgraded Coconut Charcoal Capsules $22
I usually take these just once sometimes twice a week. It works wonders if you're 'hangin on a hangover' or just not feeling well.
Pressed Juicery Activated Charcoal Lemonade $8
Who doesn't love pressed? This one has lemon & lavender undertones, hopefully they will make this one into a freeze! If you don't have a pressed by you, Whole Foods are starting to carry activated charcoal lemonades. Look out for brands such as Juice Generation!
Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Soap $12
This brand has got it down, I would probably trust anything they launch but + charcoal? I'm in.
First Aid Beauty Cleansing Body Polish with Active Charcoal $28
This brand has really great mild moisturizers so this body polish is perfect after you exfoliate to gain moisture back.
Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge With Bamboo Charcoal $15
This is so so good to exfoliate with!
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores $26
If you've seen a charcoal mask chances are it is probably this one. I put this on 10 minutes before I shower then remove! This is the only product I've used of this brand, I like it but it is really drying so make sure you have a rich moisturize post mask!
