Charcoal Burdock Mask
The perfect mask for hormonal breakouts and acne-prone skin that gently draws out dirt and toxins while combating bacteria and inflammation. Perfect if you have oily, acne-prone skin, hormonal breakouts, or are looking for a deep pore detox. We replaced the rather intense bentonite clay with more gentle yet effective green illite, fuller's clay, and kaolin.
Mix 1 tsp of powder with approximately .5-1 tsp of water, adding more if needed to achieve a smooth, batter-like texture. Spread over your face for 5-15 minutes then remove with warm water and a washcloth. Follow with toner and moisturizer. Note: redness is normal due to increased blood flow, and will dissipate in about 30 minutes.
