If you haven't tried a charcoal facial masque, I would highly recommend adding this to your DIY skin care regime! I was a bit skeptical myself, but this ingredient is both easy to work with, and makes your skin feel and look great!
Anti-aging, firming and toning benefits are visibly seen after just one application. Activated charcoal gently draws out impurities and detox's the pores, which is very useful for acne prone skin. Even better, it does not dry out your skin.
You can use this at any desired ratio from 1 to 100%. It does blend nicely with clay such as white kaolin or french green. Simply add a wetting agent: water, milk, cream, lemon juice, witch hazel, egg yolks, etc. Blend until smooth, apply and wash off after setting for 5 to 10 minutes.
Consistency: This powder is ground to be "super-fine." It will not act as an exfoliant, but you can, of course, add your favorite exfoliants to your finished formulation.
