Now some of your favorite beauty gurus to lighten underarms that have been beaten up from shaving and the aluminum that’s in most deodorants.
How does it work? Since activated charcoal is a natural lightener, it works over time and isn’t something that can produce results over night. In order to see the best results, you have to apply the activated charcoal mixture for up to 20 minutes, repeatedly for several weeks. You can purchase the charcoal in capsule form and in loose powder form.
