Hey there! Preparing for summer already?
Truth is, we all want to shine bright when this amazing season comes; and in order to do so, you need to prepare your skin from the inside to the outside and what could be better than a super effective charcoal treatment!
Nowadays, it is pretty common to find charcoal in a lot of skin care products like cleansers, soaps, lotions, masks, among others. And maybe you are wondering, what’s the magic?
Truth is, charcoal is super good for removing impurities by absorbing toxins, it reduces acne breakouts by cleaning out the sebum and bacteria that clogs your pores.
Controlling oiliness and cleaning your skin deeply is key when it comes to having a healthy skin that also looks refreshed and young.
Ready for some DIY recipes? That’s right, you don’t need to spend a lot of money buying expensive products! Ah, and preservatives free :)
This easy recipe published by Healthline will help you get a deep cleaning of your face pores. You only need a few ingredients, a measuring spoons, towel and a mixing bowl
- 2 tsp water
- 1 tsp activated charcoal powder
- 1 tsp bentonite clay
- ½ tsp of raw honey
When you are ready to start mixing, be aware that charcoal could be messy and leave a lot of spots on the superficies. If you have a black tower to put under the bowl, that would be helpful!
Add bentonite clay to the water mixture (you can also add some oil if you would like your mask to also have a good smell) and leave it still for a couple of minutes. Add the activated charcoal powder and the honey and mix it until it becomes a paste.
Get it done!
First of all, before applying the mask, be sure your face is clean (you would want to wash it before in order to remove dirt or makeup). Secondly, use your fingertips to spread the mask all over your face (watch your eyes and mouth! It isn’t tasty!).
Leave the mask doing its magic for 15 minutes and wash it off with warm water.
You can do this once a week as a complement for your regular skin care routine and… Voilá! Your skin will be glowing like the sun!
