Activated Charcoal Pure-Clay Mask
Activated Charcoal Pure-Clay Mask (50ml)
Do you use a natural face mask in your weekly skin care routine?
If you are yet to experience the benefits of using a charcoal clay mask each week, you will be in for a treat! Clays have been used for centuries to draw out toxins and impurities, soothe irritated skin, cleanse the pores and promote a clear, bright, youthful complexion. When used once or twice a week you may notice that your skin is visibly brighter, has more even tone, refined pores, less irritation and feels smoother.
Our Activated Charcoal mask is highly absorptive and a wonderfully powerful detoxifier. It is recommended for oily and combination skin types as well as when you need a deep cleanse and detox of your skin. Sensitive skin types and those with very dry skin should take care when using this face mask.
The activated charcoal and organic bentonite clay binds to the dirt and helps to pull it out of the pores, therefore making them less visible. It is this excess oil, dirt and make-up residue that gets caught in the pores and makes them appear larger. Our activated charcoal pure-clay mask is fantastic for balancing oily skin, especially in the problem T zone area. It should not be used more than 1-2 times per week though as this can lead to drying out of the skin.
Activated charcoal also helps to remove dead skin cells, deeper impurities, heavy metals, toxins and air pollutants.
How to use this product: (please refer to product card with each purchase for full instructions and tips)
Add 1 teaspoon of dry powder to an aromatic dressing bowl (or ceramic bowl). Carefully add a few drops of our Liquid Activation for an added botanical boost (or use a natural hydrosol or distilled water) and mix to form a paste. Use clean fingers or a mask brush to apply clay mask to your face and neck. Avoid the eye and mouth areas. Leave on for around 10-15 minutes at the most, before washing off with warm water.
Once the clay mask begins to feel firm it is important to remove it. If the mask is left on for too long it will begin to draw out the good oils from your skin also, leaving your skin feeling very dry.
After washing off face mask, apply a botanical mist and a face oil/moisturiser to rehydrate your skin.
Always apply to cleansed skin.
Despite the pure nature of our products, some people react or are allergic to entirely natural substances- for example lavender essential oil or Australian jojoba oil.
Whilst allergic reactions are extremely rare and unexpected, My Essential Alchemy cannot be responsible for allergies to products and resultant ailments if any. We strongly suggest that you patch test* (see below) any new product before its continued usage. If any redness, itching or discomfort occurs do not continue use.
Apply a small amount of new product to clean skin inside the elbow, inner wrist or behind the ear. Leave for 24 hours. Human skin changes daily and is affected by emotions, diet, hormones, and the climate. As with all cosmetic products, what suited you yesterday may not today, even though our formulae and ingredients have not changed.
It is especially important to undertake this patch testing if you are prone to sensitive skin, eczema, and psoriasis to avoid flareups.
We personally change our skin care regime throughout the year and suggest that you choose a product to suit the season, i.e. a richer, more protective butter in the winter, a lighter oil in the summer.
Variation in natural products
You may notice a slight variation in the colour or consistency for some of our products. These batch-to-batch differences are due to natural fluctuations of colour from the raw ingredients and seasonal adjustments. We never use synthetic colourants in any of our products. Our formulae are tweaked to suit the changing of the seasons and to provide a sublime end product for our customers.
At My Essential Alchemy, our hand crafted products and raw ingredients are carefully selected due to their natural, safe and effective properties. Despite this, caution must always be taken when handling ingredients in their raw state such as fine powders and undiluted essential oils. Take appropriate precautions for your project, such as wearing gloves, a face mask or working in a ventilated room to preserve your health.
As always, if you experience any irritation, sensitivity or discomfort discontinue use.
When making your own homemade products or storing raw ingredients please ensure that bottles/bags/jars are stored correctly, clearly labelled and kept out of reach of young children.
