clogged pores no more diy mask!

Ok ladies today i’m bringing you my favorite pore cleaning mask its cheap natural and effective. If you have clogged pores and black or white heads you will love this one. This mask is also know to help brighten and clear the skin leaving you with a beautiful glowing complexion.

For this skin clearing mask we will be using three effective and affordable ingredients.
1. Activated Charcoal- Activated Charcoal is a wonderful product with many uses but for today we will just be discussing the benefits it has on the skin. Activated charcoal naturally works like  a vacuum pulling toxins and dirt from the body it has the same effect on the pores. It helps to cleanse pores of clogging dirt and oil.

2.Bentonite clay- This gift from nature is another power house secret for the skin packed with minerals and the power to absorb up to six times it’s size when wet this is the best clay for a pore clearing mask. I could go on about the benefits of charcoal and clay but that’s what Google is for 🙂

3. Peppermint essential oil- This oil has so many skin benefits  its   antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, insecticidal, antispasmodic and  has carminative properties. Its wonderful for clearing the complexion and keeping it beautiful.

A few things before making this recipe never use metal bowls or spoons when using bentonite clay and number two feel free to use any essential oil that you desire based on your skins needs.

I am not a professional and I advise you not to use these ingredients if you have an allergy to any of the products mentioned.

1.After cleansing and patting your face dry  mix 2 table spoons Bentonite clay with three Activated Charcoal capsules
mix well add 2 drops of mint essential oil and set aside.
