Skin-Detoxifying DIY Charcoal Mask
Homemade masks can be simple to whip up, and they’re a great way to treat your skin to natural ingredients instead of conventional skincare products made with chemicals. This DIY charcoal mask features activated charcoal powder and natural clay, and you can put it together in just a matter of minutes.
The combination of ingredients in this mask can work for acne, blackheads and general skin maintenance as well as for helping combat the effects of environmental toxins that can dry out and break out skin. It will help detoxify the skin and clear out pores by using natural minerals that gently exfoliate and cleanse the skin without being too drying.
2 Tbsp. activated charcoal powder
2 Tbsp. European clay powder
1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. cold water
1 drop tea tree oil, if you suffer from acne regularly (optional)
- In stainless steel or glass bowl, add charcoal and clay powders. Sift to combine.
- Add apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and tea tree oil (if using).
- Add water and stir together with fingers or nonmetal spoon until paste forms.
- Apply immediately all over skin in thin layer and leave on for 10 minutes. (Increase up to 20 minutes once skin is used to treatment.)
- Apply once or twice per week after washing the skin with a mild cleanser.
