Blackheads Be Gone With This DIY Charcoal Face Mask

charcoal-mask

Using charcoal for a variety of DIY purposes has become quite the trend. From toothpastes to beauty products, charcoal is used for good reason. While it has the power to draw out medications and heavy metals from the body, it also has amazing skin cleansing properties. If you have ever struggled with oily skin, blackheads, or bad acne, you need this charcoal face mask.

 

Activated charcoal is carbon that has been treated to increase its absorbency. When ingested, charcoal essentially absorbs toxins in the stomach before they can enter the bloodstream. When applied to the skin it acts like a magnet, attracting dirt, oil, and other bacteria. The dirt and oils wash away once you rinse the charcoal from your face.

 

The best part about this mask is that it is filled with nontoxic ingredients that help to hydrate the skin. The coconut oil works to nourish and moisturize, while the bentonite clay helps to extract toxins. Make this mask and let us know how it works for your skin.

 

Ingredients:

  • ½ tsp activated charcoal
  • ½ tsp bentonite clay
  • ¼ tsp organic virgin coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp water

Instructions:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in small glass bowl and mix them using a wooden spoon. Don’t use any metal because that will negate the effects of the bentonite clay.
  • Using your fingers, massage the mask all over your face. Leave it on for about ten minutes and then wash it off with warm water. Pat your face dry with a cloth.
  • Make sure to use a hydrating moisturizer after the mask. Click here to make a natural moisturizer.

    Q: I have obstructive sleep apnea and I sleep with a CPAP machine. I'm doing the full body detox. On the third night while taking the ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, I woke up in the middle of the night from a dream that my head was full of air and was about to explode. I took the CPAP mask off and I haven't taking the activated charcoal since. I believe my throat collapsed, however the first night using it I slept well. I am now on my fifth day with the FULL BODY DETOX. Do you have any suggestions. Will the lack of the charcoal water formula #7 ruin my detox.

    A:

    The ACTIVATED CHARCOALis not causing the problem. You associated it with the problem. But you don't have to take the charcoal.

    Q: I have some ACTIVATED CHARCOAL left over from my FULL BODY DETOX. I just read one of your reviews that stated that someone is using the charcoal with non-fluoride toothpaste. What are the effects if you use with regular toothpaste?

    A:

    Using the activated charcoal promotes good oral health. When using it with non-fluoride toothpaste it creates a natural and powerful supplement for your teeth. You can use it with regular toothpaste, it just won't be considered natural.

    Q: I just ordered the OZ OIL, ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL, and the ACTIVATED CHARCOAL powder. I ordered the oil for my herendous keloids; do I apply it directly on the keloids and or consume it internally? Also, I don't see anything on your website for teeth (i.e. strengthening gums, plaque removal). Any recommendations for toothpaste/mouthwash?

    A:

    YOU CAN USE THE OZ OIL INTERNALLY AS WELL AS EXTERNALLY. WE HAVE DENTAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS COMING SOON, I.E. HERBAL TOOTH POWDER, MOUTHWASH, ETC. BUT CHECK YOUR ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL FOR HEALTHY BRANDS OF TOOTHPASTE. YOU'LL FIND IT IN THE MANUAL. GREAT PURCHASE!!!! FYI: I'M NOT A DOCTOR.

    Q: Unfortunately my child did get vaccinated due mostly in part to my ignorance to the law. I must admit the administration wore me down with the threats and medical exam fee that kept stating that their immunization was low. I don't believe the hype!!! I did give them charcoal and Bentonite clay right after the shots. I also took them both off of the meats and dairy completely (as we were transitioning into a raw food diet). They are looking at me long faced now but I believe that they will appreciate it later. :-) What I can take from this experience as a learning lesson and help others that maybe in a similar situation and simply do not know what to do. All the information that you have on your website is amazing (I am a Dherbs junkie). You said it best that knowledge is power and I truly understand that statement now. Thank you for all that you do and just know that your works are appreciated.

    A:

    Did you read our article on â€THE DANGERS OF VACCINATIONS†I have created a NEW vaccine waiver kit that folks will be able to order from Dherbs and give to all administrations. It includes an affidavit of objection, an affidavit to the nurse assuming 100% full responsibility for the inoculation, and a request for chemical ingredient of the vaccine. Have the child perform CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) too (within the next 30 days). Stay strong and move forward more knowledgeable than you were.
