04 Jan Kristy’s 3 Ingredient Charcoal Face Mask
So there’s this hype at the moment about charcoal. Charcoal tooothpaste, charcoal deodorant, charcoal hamburger buns and charcoal face masks. Without doubt charcoal is beneficial for our health. It pulls impurities both internally and externally however when it is mixed with a whole lot of chemicals I think it’s probably counteracting the benefits.
There’s a mask I’ve been making for a long time now that I’ve always found leaves my face feeling soft and supple but once I added a capsule of activated charcoal, which can be purchased at any health store, it had an uncanny resemblance to the ones on the shelf.
The ingredients are:
1 capsule of activated charcoal
1 tsp of gelatin
1 tsp of milk
Mix all ingredients together in a little tiny bowl and microwave for 10 seconds.
Activated charcoal can also be broken out of the capsule and used to brush your teeth much like the charcoal toothpastes and they’re also great to have on hand Incase of any irritated tummies and stomach bugs.
This will make enough for one person or if you’re only doing your nose it’ll be enough for two. So before you add the newest one on social media to your cart make sure you give this a try first.
