Peel-Off Activated Charcoal Face Mask

Peel-Off Black Face Mask

Hello everyone, today's post it’s the last one of the year, and, I wanted to close with a very popular trend on youtube: the activated charcoal peel-off mask.

If you have seen in, this mask is made with glue and activated charcoal. People claim this works perfectly and it’s an excellent blackhead and whitehead remover.

Activated charcoal can be bought at any drugstore or pharmacy, and has many health benefits and helps to deep clean the skin. It is safe to use.

However, the glue it’s something that should not be used as a cosmetic product, even though it's non-toxic, wasn’t made to be used on the skin and it can irritate the skin or even burn it.

It doesn’t matter how many people say it’s safe to use and works, don’t do it! Don’t use glue as a face mask

If you really want to try a peel-off activated charcoal mask I have a better alternative for you.

What you need:
Milk (preferably almond or coconut milk)
Non-sugar gelatine
Activated charcoal

The gelatine will work as a base of the mask to make it a peel-off

Preparation: Mix the warm milk with the gelatine until its completely dissolved, add the charcoal and mix it well. The amount of charcoal you´ll ad will vary according on how much product you are making for example I only use 1 capsule because I only use the mask on my nose.

Once all the ingredients are mixed, wait for it to cool so you don’t burn your face but don’t wait too long you would want to apply the mask before it gets sticky.

Apply the mask with a brush and let it dry completely.

Once it's dry, try peeling the ends of the mask first then peel it all off at once (as you would do it if you were waxing) if you do have blackheads you´ll see them.   

It really works, leave the skin soft and remove all the blackheads, I suggest to only use this mask on the nose and the T zone because it does hurt a little when you peel it off.

If you don’t have blackheads or oily skin, I don’t recommend you to do this mask because it can irritate your skin since it has nothing to remove.

But you do use the mask use it only 1 or 3 times a month, remember overusing a product can also damage your skin.

Have you tried the activated charcoal peel-off mask? 

Please don’t forget to share on the comment your experience if you try the mask.
