Things you need-
To make this DIY anti-acne and skin detoxing mask, you need 2-3 tablespoons of fresh aloe vera gel and 1 tablespoon of activated pure charcoal powder. That’s it!
Put 2-3 tablespoons of freshly obtained aloe vera gel. Make sure you blend it so that you have no aloe lumps in it. Next, add in charcoal powder and stir it until you see that charcoal is well mixed with the gel without lumping. This can take some time, but keep stirring. After you are done, you will have thick gel-like and sticky black mixture. Get hold of a face pack brush and apply it on well-cleansed face. You can use hot water to open your pores, pat dry and then apply this mask. Layer the mask 2-3 times for an opaque and even layer of the mask. Lie under the fan so that it dries quickly and does not drip. After 20 minutes, spray some rose water ion the face or cold water and massage for good 3-4 minutes. The charcoal gently exfoliates the skin and removes the entire top dead skin layer. Wash it all off using cold water to tighten the pores. Pat dry and follow with your regular moisturizer.
