Activated charcoal is an amazing ingredient that is able to effectively draw bacteria, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. This mask is combined with bentonite clay and white kaolin clay making for an awesome pore tightening action.
*This mask can temporarily cause redness from clay stimulating blood vessels to the surface of the skin. Use at night, and as with all clay masks, follow with moisturizer while skin is still damp.
How to use:
1-2 times per week, mix 1 teaspoon of dry product with 1 teaspoon hydrosol/water and stir with a wooden or plastic utensil (never metal!) until a paste forms. Allow product to hydrate for 5 minutes before application and add more liquid if mixture is too dry. More powder = thicker clay. Spread over face and neck using a brush or your fingers and allow to dry. Rinse with water and immediately follow with serum and/or moisturizer.
*Bentonite is very unusual in the fact that once it becomes hydrated, the electrical and molecular components of the clay rapidly change and produce an electrical charge. When mixed with liquid, it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. Skin toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they are bound. When the clay is dry and rinsed away, the toxins are washed away with it! Using metal utensils to stir will deactivate this electrical charge and reduce the power of this mask.
