Charcoal Mask Recipe

Blackheads, pimples, whiteheads…oh my goodness. Isn’t it a sight to see?They have the tendency to pop up when you have pictute day tomorrow, or before the first day of that interview. No more! If you need a mask pick me up, then, you should try this rocking charcoal mask. 

Things You’ll Need:

  • Little bowl or tupperware
  • Dark colored washcloth 
  • 1/4 tsp activated charcoal
  • 1/2 tsp betonite clay powder
  • Tsp of water
  • Teaspoon
  • Patience

After you grab your tools above, head on over to the sink so we can get this clay mask started! 

First Mix, mix, mix the activated charcoal and betonite clay together in your tupperware or small bowl. 

Second Add the water and mix your batter. It’ll be paste, so if your mixture looks watery, add some more betonite clay. 

Third Wash your face with your fav cleanser, rinse and pat your face lightly, so it’s damp. Now, it’s time to spackle your face with newly formed mask. 

Fourth Apply a thin layer of mask on your face and neck. If you have other areas like your shoulders, upper back, and/or chest you can apply there as well. Application with the back of your spoon and then smoothing out the rest with your fingers makes this job easy. 

Fifth Grab your patience because it’s waiting time. Leave your mask on your face for 5 to 10 minutes allowing it to completely dry. You can clean up and store your leftover mask for later (put a top on your small bowl or saran wrap the top, so the mask won’t dry out.) 

Sixth After the mask dries, apply warm water on your washcloth and place directly on your face to loosen up the mask. Then, begin to wash off gently. A litle bit of facial cleanser can be added as well to help with the process of cleaning off your face.

Seventh Once the mask is off, you can splash your face with ice cold water or use a toner. Then, apply a moisturizer. 

It ain’t magic, honey, but boy does it work.

Note: The mask is useful when you aren’t overdoing it. Do it 1 to 2 times a week after exfoliating for a really clean feel.
