SELF LOVE: DIY Charcoal Peel-Off Mask

Have you seen those peel-off charcoal masks online? 🧖‍♀️ They’re fun to watch, but you don’t need to buy one 😉 You can make your own DIY Charcoal Peel-Off Mask with just 4 ingredients.
:::
Servings: 1 use
Ingredients
🔸️1 capsule activated charcoal (about 1/4 to 1/3 tsp)
🔸️1/4 tsp bentonite clay
🔸️1 tsp non-flavored gelatin
🔸️2 drops tea tree essential oil
🔸️2 tsp boiling hot water
:::
Instructions
➡️ Remove make up and use a gentle cleanser to clean the face. Pat dry.
➡️ Open the activated charcoal capsule and add the contents to a small glass or ceramic bowl. Discard the empty capsule.
➡️ First, add bentonite clay and gelatin. Then add boiling water and mix well with a mini silicone spatula (avoid metal spoons as the metal may weaken the health properties of the bentonite clay). The gelatin will thicken up the mask. Add 1 drop tea tree oil and mix again.
➡️ Use a mask brush to apply a layer of the mask to the skin, avoiding eye brows and be careful not to get too close the eyes.
➡️ Apply mask rather quickly as the mask will continue to thicken up. If the mask in the bowl dries up sooner than you get to apply the mask, add a 1/2 to 1 tsp of boiling hot water again to make the mask liquid again to apply.
:::
Once you have a thick layer of the mask on the skin, allow to dry about 20-30 minutes. You may need to wait longer depending on the thickness of the mask. You will feel a slight tingling sensation from the bentonite clay and tea tree oil, both help to remove impurities from the skin 😶
:::
Once the mask is dry, start on an edge (chin or forehead) and slowly peel off the mask until it’s completely gone. You can use a warm washcloth to remove any remaining mask on the face.
:::
Apply a toner and then follow with a moisturizer to keep the skin nourished 😍
