What is Activated Charcoal Powder? Well, I can safely say that you will not find it in your barbecue grill out in your backyard. While the health benefits for your body are not new news, the presence of mainstream health as well as being using as many types of beauty products are. There have been a lot of talk about how Activated Charcoal can ultimately suck up all of the toxins (bad stuff) within your body, acts as an inner body cleanser. Along with this, it has also been mentioned that it can be used as a facial cleanser, a facial mask, as well as a teeth whitener.

Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder – Facial Cleanser
Using as a facial cleanser – mix a little bit of Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder with a little bit of olive oil as well as a little warm water. When this is completed it will look like actually volunteered for an oil spill on your face. As you spread all over your face and use the Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder it feels like a facial scrub, the charcoal actually binds with those pore-clogging toxins and the dirt that causes acne as well as relieving inflammation.
If using as a facial cleanser – do so at your own risk, it does take a lot of effort to actually clean it off your face. With that said I would not recommend trying this in the morning while getting ready for work.
Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder – Facial Mask
As with all of the rest of the facial mask that is on the market, Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder used as a mask is supposed to unblock those clogged pores as well as smooth your skin. Creating the cleanser is quite easy, although it may seem just a bit strange.
Mix a little of the Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder with a bit of PVA glue (non-toxic child’s glue), yes I did say GLUE. Keep in mind keep the mixture really moist with more glue than charcoal, if it is too dry it will crack and only come off your face in tiny pieces (which by the way takes forever).
After your mixture is complete, using an old makeup brush apply all over your face. Note: avoid spreading on hair such as eyebrows, the charcoal mixture will adhere and you will be pulling out hair. Once you have applied the mixture it will be glossy and thick as it settles in you will begin to notice spots that are a bit thin.
Recoat these spots, do not put too much on because it does take quite a while to actually dry all the way. Leave the mixture on your face for about 45 minutes to an hour until it completely dries. As you pull off the mask it will be removing impurities as well as dead dry skin. When it is completely removed your skin will feel very clean and moisturized.
Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder – Teeth Whitener
There are two ways that Viva Doria Activated Charcoal Powder can be used for this. The first is to use the charcoal straight out of the bottle. Wet your toothbrush, dip it into some of the charcoal and start brushing. Do not worry there is actually not taste to it, although it does make your mouth feel very dry. After it looks as if you swallowed a glass full of oil, let it sit on your teeth for a few minutes, then rinse. Note: it take a bit to actually get all of the black out of your mouth, I would actually recommend rinsing with water several times as well as brushing again with regular toothpaste, oh and do not forget to brush your tongue because that will be black as well. The second is to put toothpaste on your toothbrush and then brush your teeth. Both ways of performing the tooth whitening process will require a little bit more time in order to remove all of the charcoal from your mouth.
My Thoughts on the Product
While this is truly and amazing product and said to remove all of those toxins from your body when drank, I actually did not try drinking it. I did, in fact, try the teeth whitening process, as well as the facial scrub and mask. The process I used for the teeth whitening was straight without the toothpaste, even though I am not sure if it is actually whitening my teeth they really do feel cleaner and I would not recommend doing the process before work due to being time-consuming.
As a facial mask, it was quite strange to think about painting my face with glue but I did it anyway, and it did leave my face feeling a bit cleaner and refreshed. Take note that you definitely don’t want to get it on your clothes (click here to check out our Stitch Fix review)!
Using Charcoal as a facial scrub, well I would have to say that it really did not impress me my skin felt the same maybe if it were not mixed with oil it would have been better. So, do I think you should use this? Absolutely. If you want to have whiter, cleaner teeth and you’d like to have a great overall smooth feeling, then you can make use of this charcoal mask.
It is inexpensive and wonderful, why wouldn’t you grab it for yourself?
As a last reminder, remember that your skin condition is very closely correlated with what you eat. If you tend to eat junk food, then it will definitely show in your skin. If you have difficulty in cooking healthy meals, then I suggest heading over to our sun basket review.
