Natural Beauty Do-It-Yourself

Ready to get started with activated charcoal? Below are two recipes for your skin: a detoxifying mask to remove impurities and an exfoliating charcoal mask to get that deep debris out of your pores. Keep in mind that while activated charcoal won’t stain your skin, it will stain other surfaces like counter tops and clothes, so be careful during application.

DIY ACTIVATED CHARCOAL DETOX MASK

Ingredients:

1/2 Tablespoon Activated Charcoal Powder
1/2 Tablespoon Rosewater (or regular if you don’t have it)
1/2 Tablespoon Bentonite Clay
Optional: Dab of raw honey for hydration

Instructions:

Combine charcoal, rosewater, and other ingredients if you’re adding them. Know that this mixture will be slightly runnier than many other types of masks.
Apply to a clean face and let sit for 10 minutes.
Rinse and pat dry.

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL SCRUB

1/2 Tablespoon Activated Charcoal Powder
1/2 Tablespoon Rosewater
2 teaspoons coconut palm sugar
2 teaspoons honey
