Detoxifying face mask

Quick and easy charcoal and clay face mask to draw out toxins through the skin

Slap this face mask, home made with activated charcoal and bentonite clay, to extract toxins from your face, neck and arm pits (yep, I include the arm pits too).  

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal
  • 4 tablespoons of bentonite clay
  • filtered water

 METHOD

Mix the 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal and 4 tablespoons of bentonite clay together in a bowl.  Then slowly add filtered water a couple of tablespoons at a time until you reach a consistency of clay.  

Apply the face mask to your face, neck and armpits (why not give your armpits a try, it's quite good fun) and leave to dry for 10-15 minutes.  The mask can become itchy as it drys, which drives me nuts, but you can take it off if it feels too uncomfortable.

Remove the mask with a warm cloth.
