Activated charcoal is not only good for the digestive tract, it has beneficial properties for your skin too. See below how you can use it in a recipe that removes blackheads from the first application:
Activated charcoal is used in treating many domestic affections, but when is applied to the skin, can cleanse the pores. For skin mask we will use the black clay, which also cleans the pores too, but also has anti-acne properties. Here’s how to make the mask:
You need two to three capsules of activated charcoal (if it comes in gummy capsules, then it is already cut, if it comes into buffered form, you have to grind it yourself), half a teaspoon of black clay (if you don’t have black clay, use white or brown) and a teaspoon and a half of water – boiled and then cooled.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl – preferably with a wooden spoon or plastic (metal oxidizes the clay) – until you create a smooth black paste.
After you’ve washed your face with your usual cleanser and the skin is still a little wet, apply the mask on your skin. Stretch it over the face, from ear to ear and down the neck, but not on the eyes area, because skin is very delicate there.
Leave the mask to act up to 10 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water. Finally you can apply a very light cream or the preferred oil hydrant only in areas that tend to dry more often.
