Say Goodbye To Blackheads With This Natural Charcoal Mask
Written by: Lindsay Sibson
There is no doubt in my mind that we evolved from apes.
Hands down, I have ape-like tendencies… especially when it comes to picking and grooming my partner.
ZITS don’t stand a chance. I’m ON IT, stat! Stray hairs? Don’t worry, I’ll take care of those too.
And I know I’m not alone!
As women, we LOVE to pick pick pick pick pick at things. Riiiiiight?
But, you and I also know that messing with our precious skin can leave marks and scars.
Fear not, ladies (and gentlemen), this all natural DIY charcoal mask can beat those blemishes and leave your skin feeling fresh – without any squeezing, picking, or popping!
What Are Blackheads?
Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to the hair follicle(s) becoming clogged. They are referred to as “blackheads” because on the surface of your skin they appear “black” and dark.
As a mild type of acne, blackheads generally appear on the face, but can also form on your neck, shoulders, chest, arms and back.
How Can You Remove Blackheads? Make A Natural Charcoal Blackhead Mask
What You Need:
1. In a small glass jar, mix together the gelatin and water.
2. Add the activated charcoal and stir.
3. Place the glass jar in the middle of a pan with an inch of water (to create a double boiler).
- Turn the stove burner on to warm the water in the pan so that it heats the glass jar and melts the gelatin (about 5 minutes).
- Once the gelatin is dissolved into the charcoal and water, remove from the heat and allow to cool a few minutes.
4. Once cooled, the mask is ready to apply to your nose, chin and entire face (if desired).
How To Use The Mask:
1. Thoroughly wash your face with a natural cleanser.
2. Soak a clean washcloth in warm/hot water and press onto face for a few minutes to open up your pores (or apply the mask directly after a warm shower).
3. Use a facial brush to apply the mask to desired areas (nose, chin, etc.).
- If the mask is thin and runny, allow to cool and apply another layer.
4. Allow the mask to COMPLETELY dry (about 45 minutes).
- Gently peel off the mask and then wash face.
OH MY – the supreme satisfaction of being rid of all those lil’ suckers clogging up your beautiful face… SUCCESS!
