This is one of my favorite diy face masks for battling black heads. This mask is a very gentle exfoliate that also tightens pores and pulls out impurities.

What is Activated Charcoal?

Activated charcoal is not the same stuff that you would find in your BBQ pit. Activated charcoal becomes oxidized when exposed to high temps that cause the surface to become porous. When you apply activated charcoal the porous nature allows chemicals, metals, and toxins to bind to it. This helps rid the body of unwanted substances.
