Hey internet Friends,
When I posted my current favourites post last month it was requested that I talk about how I use Activated Charcoal to whiten my teeth so you asked and I deliver.
Firstly let me tell you that this is absolutely disgusting but it really does work.
I know it seems mental but charcoal is known for removing toxins and impurities. Its used for so many medicinal and environmental reasons.
Its used for poisonings and water purification so it kinda makes sense.
Just be prepared for all the tiles and sinks in your bathroom to be absolutely ruined!
What Is Activated Charcoal?
Common charcoal is made from peat, coal, wood, coconut shell, or petroleum and you probably wouldn’t want to put it in your mouth.
Activated charcoal is similar to common charcoal, but is made especially for use as a medicine. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or pores.
These pores help activated charcoal absorb chemicals.
Activated charcoal is used to treat poisonings, reduce intestinal gas, lower cholesterol levels, prevent hangovers, and treat bile flow problems during pregnancy. Doctors prescribe it to you and its commonly used in Emergency Rooms so its 100% safe.
How to use it on your teeth:
Open the Charcoal capsules onto a piece of kitchen paper to avoid completely chaos in your bathroom.
Dip a wet, clean toothbrush into the powder so it covers all the bristles.
Quickly and carefully put the toothbrush in your mouth and brush in small circles for two minutes.
Spit and rinse as normal.
Once a week you can also dilute some hydrogen peroxide with water and use it as a mouthwash for extra whitening power. I have been doing this for about 2 months and I think the results speak for themselves. I also have made a small change in my life to only drink through straws and that has also made a real difference to the whiteness of my teeth!
Im really keen to keep whitening my teeth and may consider professional whitening before my wedding.
Have you guys ever tried it?
What happened and what did you think to it?
Please Link me to any posts you know about it?
