Detox face masks are all the rage right now. They clean clogged pores which helps keep blackheads , whiteheads and acne away. But detox face masks can be intimidating for people with dry and irritated skin as they absorb the oil that our skin produces. Having oily T zone during summers, I don’t have any problem with it. Infact , I like this after effect.
After my visit to water park I had small small acne (kind of big whiteheads) and dry patches all over my face. I guess , staying in chlorine water whole day long did that to my skin. I knew , detox mask will help me out but since I already had dry patches I wanted to apply a more moisturizing mask with detox properties.
Hence , I came up with this face mask which turned out to be creamy in texture & soothing for the irritated skin. It even cured my whiteheads or small acne (no idea what they were) with just one application.
This face mask will work as a perfect skin detox for those who have dry skin.
You’ll need –
– 1/2 Tablespoon Kaolin Clay ( Read more about it here)
– Pinch of Activated Charcoal
– 1/2 Tablespoon Organic Raw Honey
– 1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera Gel
– 2 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
– Mix all of them together to make a paste. (Do not add water)
– Leave it on for 20 minutes.
I did not use aloe vera gel from the plant since it causes irritation on my skin. (The one shown in image is just for the picture :D). If you have acne , then add tea tree essential oil , otherwise it can be skipped.
