Activated Charcoal Powder by Zen Charcoal



Chances are you have probably heard about Activate Charcoal in one form or another, unless of course you've been stranded on a deserted island for the past year and then maybe this is the first time your hearing about it!
Activated Charcoal has many uses but primarily my interest lies in the ways you can use it as it pertains to beauty and skincare, for obvious reasons.
Truth be told this is my first experience with the powder version of Activated Charcoal.  I have used countless beauty products like masks and Konjac Sponges that contain Activated Charcoal but I have never experienced in it's raw form.
One thing you should know about Activated Charcoal Powder is that it is very, very messy!  It's actually not a big deal but just know you'll need to give everything a good wipe down when your done.  My favorite thing to do with this Activated Charcoal Powder by Zen Charcoal is to make a detox mask.  You can really customize the mask depending what is going on with your skin but I like to mix the Activated Charcoal, Water (sometimes I use Rose Water or a little Apple Cider Vinegar), Aloe Vera and if I am really wanting a good detox I will add a few drops of Tea Tree Oil but you can add any essential oil.  Depending on how thick you want the mask to be you simply add less or more water.  I mix everything really well, apply to skin using a brush (way less messy) and then let it dry for 15-20 minutes and rinse off.  Skin feels clean, soft, smooth and detoxed!  It's one of my favorite DIY masks!

Tip:  I purchased a DIY Mask Bowl set from Amazon it comes with a small bowl, measuring spoons, spatula and brush all for the low, low price of $2.21 + free shipping!  It's been a life saver and I highly recommend getting one for yourself if you like to mix your own masks like I do!


Pick up your own bag of all natural Activated Charcoal Powder by Zen Charcoal on Amazon.com and get detoxed inside and out!
