How to Make an Activated Charcoal Face Mask

Show your skin some love with a healthy homemade Activated Charcoal Face Mask

The average woman uses twelve personal care products in a day, exposing herself to approximately 168 different chemicals1. That’s huge!

Some of those chemicals have been linked to potential health risks, raising questions about ingredients as potentially carcinogenic, toxic to reproductive health or disruptive to our hormones.

Our skin is our largest organ, and we need to take care of it.

But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that you have to give up pampering yourself after a long day. Indulging your inner goddess is easy with natural beauty alternatives. In fact, making the choice to use natural personal care products can provide all the skin-loving nourishment you’re looking for, without any of the health risks.

Make earth-friendly choices

Ingredients in personal care products can also pose a threat to the environment. They get washed down our drains and enter our water systems, ending up in our lakes and streams. Some of these chemicals can alter our underwater ecosystems, leading to increased mortality rates in aquatic life, behavioural changes and reproductive mutations2. Choosing natural alternatives is not only beneficial to your health, but it’s also healthier for our planet.

Choose healthy natural alternatives

Numerous natural and safe options exist on the market these days when it comes to personal care. You can find natural deodorants, natural lip balms, natural lotions, natural shampoos, natural sunscreens, the list goes on.

We’re excited to share this recipe with you for a natural homemade face mask! Enjoy some R&R to yourself, or invite your girlfriends and do some pampering in your very own home. This face mask is simple to make and safe to use.

  3. Let dry for approximately 10 minutes.
  4. Remove face mask with warm water and a cloth.
  5. Wash your face with your regular facial cleanser to remove any residual activated charcoal from the skin.
