Charcoal Face Mask
Handmade in small batches in Los Angeles.
Blended from bamboo activated charcoal, Fuller's earth clay, and licorice root powder, this face mask will draw toxins and impurities from your skin and pores, and works best for normal to oily skin types. Activated charcoal is a powerful natural absorber, soaking up dirt and oils that can clog pores. Fuller's earth clay further aids in unclogging pores and reduce excess oil secretion, and carries away dead skin cells. Licorice root acts as an anti-inflammatory to soothe irritation, and delivers anti-oxidants which helps regulate oil production.
How to use: Once a week or as needed. In a small bowl, blend 1-2 tsp with equal parts water or other chosen hydrator (aloe vera juice and milk contribute their own benefits to the mask). Use fingertips to apply a thin, even coat to freshly washed face and neck, and leave until nearly dry. When first applied, the skin is able to absorb minerals and nutrients from the mask, and as it dries the tightening of the mask will stimulate the skin and encourage blood flow. Wash away the mask with lukewarm water before it dries completely, and follow with your preferred treatment regimen.
