Hey guys! Beka here with an exciting DIY face mask! I’m really looking forward to blogging here and I’m so excited to show you some fun ways to take care of your body!
Activated Charcoal has the ability to pull out toxins from your pores.
Bentonite Clay has the really fun ability to pull out heavy metals (and no I don’t mean steel and tin foil).
Tea Tree Oil is antifungal meaning it helps opens your pores and remove acne (acne is basically an infection on your face).
Raw Honey has the ability to maintain a soothing effect and helps remove oils from your face that aren’t supposed to be there.
Here is an example of what you’ll need:
Directions (DO NOT use a metal spoon when touching bentonite clay):
1 & 1/2 Tablespoon of Bentonite Clay
1 teaspoon Activated Charcoal
4 drops of Tea Tree Oil
A dash of water
1 & 1/2 teaspoon of raw honey/regular honey (we used about a spoonful)
Stir together Bentonite Clay and Activated Charcoal with a plastic or wooden spoon till mixed thoroughly. Mix in Tea Tree Oil and water till paste-like. Add honey and mix till combined (note if you use raw honey, it won’t like mixing together so it’ll take a bit of patience).
I have a beautiful model here and after having her clean her face with cold water, I got her to sit still and I put the charcoal mask on with my CLEAN hands avoiding her eyes, mouth, nose, and eyebrows (warning the mask will stain them so BEWARE)!
Let the mask sit for 15 minutes (or till it begins to feel dry & tightened). This also is a great way to get your siblings to be quiet because it quite literally glues their mouths shut (not permanently) lol. Get a hot washcloth and drape it over their face and let it sit till the washcloth is cold. Allow them to finish washing it off with warm water and pat it dry with a clean towel.
AFTER the Charcoal Mask: After using Bentonite Clay and Charcoal their face will be pretty dried out so I made an oil cleanse with some Almond Oil (just a dash) and had her massage it into her face for a minute. Follow up with a hot washcloth (use a new one) and allow it to cool once again. Then pat it dry with a new clean dry washcloth.
And that’s it! A quick easy way to help treat your skin from any scaring, oil/dry, and dirty pores. Remember not every skin type is the same so use what’s best for you! This has been something my family has found useful and creative (also makes you look like a panda, which is cool).
See you next time guys! Beka signing off ❤️
