DIY Activated Charcoal Peel Off Mask
Hello everybody, Today I’ll be trying and testing a DIY which has taken the internet by storm. You might have known or heard about the ‘Activated charcoal’ which is a widely popular ingredient in many skincare products. So, let’s just begin with the DIY.
DISCLAIMER: Do Not Try This At Home! I just wanted to experiment and see if this works.
PRODUCTS AND INGREDIENTS USED:
- Plastic Bowl
- Plastic Spoon
- Activated Charcoal Fevicol (or any Non-toxic Glue / Gelatin)
WHAT IS AN ACTIVATED CHARCOAL?
Activated carbon, also called activated charcoal, is a form of carbon processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption or chemical reactions Source: Wikipedia
Activated Charcoal pulls off dirt, sebum, whiteheads, blackheads from surface of the skin and makes it cleaner. It is a boon for people with oily skin.
- Take 2 Teaspoons of charcoal and pour it onto your plastic bowl. (Make sure to use a plastic bowl instead of any metal bowl, since activated charcoal pulls off the dirt from the metal surface)
- Squeeze out a good amount of Fevicol into the bowl.
- Mix both of the ingredients well until you get a fine paste.
- Your Mask is ready
HOW TO USE:
- Cleanse your face with a facial cleanser
- Wipe off the water and pat it dry
- Apply the mask directly onto your nose and chin
- Wait for 4-5 minutes and let it dry
- Then peel off the mask (after it has been completely dried)
- Wipe off the excess dried up mask using micellar water or simply a wet wipe (I’ve used Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water)
You can definetly see the black and white heads along with some facial hair. Usually I don’t have a lot of black heads but I do have a little bit of white heads. This mask pulled off everything and made my nose and chin dirt free.
You will observe that your pores on your nose will be tightened after using this diy mask and will appear brighter but that does not mean that you can use this for your skin. I’d never recommend this DIY to anyone.
That’s it. I wanted to try if it works, but I don’t think you should apply Fevicol to your face. It can harm your skin in the longer run.
