Fantastic Skin Clarifying Mask

clay and charcoal facial mask

Are you worried about enlarged pores, blackheads or patchy skin? Try this amazing and natural mask to draw out all the impurities. Shrink the pores and leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised.

It only takes a few ingredients and a couple of minutes to prepare but you will feel like you have been for a deep cleansing facial afterwards. Bentonite is great for increasing the circulation, detoxifying, exfoliating and healing the skin. When you add water to it, it becomes negatively charged so it attracts and binds with toxins. Charcoal adsorbs more than 100 times its own weight in impurities

Note to self:

1) Do not try to drink coffee whilst wearing this mask because eventually the face becomes too immobile to use your lips effectively.

    Ingredients
    • 1 teaspoon bentonite clay
    • 1/4 teaspoon activated charcoal powder (see recipe notes)
    • purified water
    • 1 or 2 drops Lavender Oil or orange oil
    • 1 small glass bowl
    • 1 wooden ice cream stick or toothpick for mixing
      Instructions
      1. Put clay and charcoal in bowl.
      2. Add just enough water to mix into a smooth, thick paste.
      3. Add oil.
      4. Hold a warm wet facecloth against your skin for a few moments to open pores.
      5. Smear mask all over face and jaw line, avoid getting too close to the delicate skin around the eyes.
      6. Relax and read a book while the mask dries – takes a while but you can actually feel it tightening and pulling out all the toxins which is somewhat satisfying.
      7. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
      Recipe Notes

      If you don’t have the powder you can use 2 charcoal capsules – just open them and pour the contents out.
