Often times, the most beneficial and luxurious spa products are created using ingredients from the earth, crafted by mother nature herself! More times than not, you can create these same products in the comfort of your own home! My Black Goddess Face Scrub messy, but has magical cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing powers that make clean up worth the effort!! Let’s get started!
What You Will Need:
- 1/2 tsp activated charcoal powder | Find this online or in a local herbal shop
- 1 tbsp cleansing grains | Recipe Here
- 1 tbsp hot water
- 1tsp local or organic honey | Find locally at a grocery store or herbal shop
- 1 tsp moisturizing oil | I used Olive Oil
- Other: Plastic spoon and container, plastic gloves
This recipe makes one enough for one application. Any leftover should be refrigerated and used within 2 days.
How to Apply | To a clean face, apply the mixture over face and neck. Allow to sit for 10 minutes and gently remove with warm washcloth. Finally rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. You may or may not need to moisturize after; I do not need to because my skin is usually moist from the oil I’ve added.
Things to be Aware of Staining | Staining: Charcoal stains! Have your cleaning supplies on standby for after your facial; otherwise, you’ll have unsightly black stains in your sink! Also, use gloves to prevent the charcoal from staining your hands. Finally, know that any towel used for wiping your face will be stained!
Mix Consistency: This will vary depending on the each user. I like the consistency on the thicker side so I do not risk the mixture dripping from my face should it be too runny. The mixture should be thick enough to spread, but not so thin that it drips.
Activated Charcoal & Honey Combination: Work together to remove toxins and can help reduce the instances of acne and other skin impurities.
I love this scrub because despite how messy it is, it leaves my skin feeling supple and gives it a youthful glow! Give it a try and let me know how much you love it in the comment section!
