NOT-SO-DIRTY SE­CRET

Martha Stewart Weddings - - BEAUTY -

It seems para­dox­i­cal to brush with a nearly black sub­stance to whiten teeth, but that hasn’t stopped le­gions of ad­her­ents from prais­ing ac­ti­vated-char­coal tooth­paste. “At first I was alarmed by the loads of gray suds, but it left my mouth feel­ing minty, and look­ing cleaner and vis­i­bly brighter than any other tooth­paste I’ve tried,” says Martha Ste­wart Wed­dings ex­ec­u­tive editor Laura Wal­lis. (As with any new­fan­gled no­tion, den­tists ad­vise moder­a­tion.)
