Ingredients to Make a Charcoal Face Mask:
Bentonite Clay: This clay comes from aged volcanic ash sediments and is a wonderful agent to remove toxins from your skin. It is a great cleansing agent and helps remove impurities.
Honey: It is an antibacterial and soften and soothes skin. It speeds your skin cell’s healing process which means if you have blemish or eczema, honey could speed up the healing.
Few Drops of Orange Juice: Orange is known to bring freshness to your skin and is an excellent source of vitamin C.
Activated Charcoal: Activated Charcoal comes from carbon-rich materials like char, peat, coconut shells, or olive pits. The one I am using here is made out of coconut shells. It helps to cleanse the pores and rejuvenate the skin by removing dead cells and skin.
Orange Essential Oil(Optional): The antimicrobial properties of orange essential oil makes it great for all skin types. It promotes cell growth, increases hydration, and brightens your skin. You can choose any essential oils of your choice which are good for the skin.
- In a small bowl, add water, ¼ tbsp honey, and 2 drops of essential oil
- Add 1 tbsp Bentonite Clay and 1 tbsp Activated Charcoal on top of the water mixture and let it rest for 10-15 secs. This will help to easily combine the mixture.
- Squeeze the fresh orange to add 2-3 drops of juice
- Mix well to make a smooth and even paste. Remove any lumps if formed.
- Liberally apply it on your face. Wash it after 10-15 mins or when completely dry. Don’t let it overdry. Wash with lukewarm water and face wash (if required)
- You can also store the remaining mask in a glass bottle and refrigerate it. Use it within 7-10 days
Pack the dry mixture in a glass bottle, tie twine around and wrap in a gift paper! Surprise your mom with this easy at-home DIY FACE MASK! This will be such a special and thoughtful gift that will pamper those amazing moms out there.
