* Charcoal’s been found to release the body of toxins and heavy metals
* Can also reduce muscle pain
* You can even use charcoal to help make teeth whiter

Guys, heavy metal may be great for rocking out, but it’s terrible for your skin. And the environment is filled with them. From our cars to cell phones and almost everything in between, heavy metals are everywhere. But you can rid yourself of those nasty things simply by adding some of these awesome charcoal-infused products into your daily hygiene routine.

That’s because charcoal works like a tiny vacuum, sucking all the dirt, bacteria and excess oil from your skin. It can even make your teeth whiter by extracting toxins from your mouth. Feel sore from your workout? Charcoal is like having your own personal masseuse to help reduce muscle pain. It’s kind of magical and we think you’ll agree. Here’s a look at five of our favorite charcoal-infused products.
