The Black Head Remover Face Mask

This facial mask focuses on skin that is in need of soothing and clearing up due to acne. The activated charcoal recipe is a very well know basic recipe for acne and easily irritated skin. We go light on the moisturizing additives and focus on the practical ingredients that are known for drying, drawing out impurities, and killing bacteria.

In this recipe we have added glycerin, jojoba, and tea tree for its liquid properties. This will create that mud like silky texture that will make the clay and charcoal feel like a smooth facial mask with a creamy body.

If your skin is especially red and in need of gentle care, try replacing the liquid ingredients with plain aloe juice. This will make a mask that is a bit more thin but may feel more cool on the skin.

What you will need:

  • 1 tsp. of Activated charcoal

  • 4 oz. of Bentonite clay

  • 1 oz. of. Glycerin

  • 1/4 oz. of Jojoba oil

  • 4 drops of tea tree oil

Instructions & Notes: Mix the dry ingredients first, then add your wet ingredients. Package this in its mud form and make sure to tell your customer to add 2 parts water to 1-part mud to the instructions. Apply this mask and allow it to dry completely before washing off.

What does the tea tree oil do? It's thought to calm redness, swelling, and inflammation. It may even help to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving you with smooth, clear skin. There are claims that tea tree oil can promote skin whitening.

What does the jojoba oil do? Jojoba is not really an oil, but a wax. It makes the skin feel softer by coating a waxy layer over the top. This helps your recipe feel smooth and gives it a silky texture.

Don't forget red skin and acne can be more serious than just being soothed with cosmetic 'remedies' . Facial masks serve many purposes for pampering and relaxation, but they do not take the place of medical care when needed. If your skin is broken or red to the point of discomfort, these masks are not medicine and do not take the place of a doctor when needed.
