3 Creative Ways to Use Activated Charcoal in Your Beauty Routine 


Hello, lovelies!

Charcoal is an active ingredient in many beauty products. Active charcoal is medicinally used to remove toxic substances from the body, so it is no surprise that it is also an effective beauty ingredient! I use it in a face mask, but here are other uses:
