Activated Charcoal Face Scrub for Purifying Pimples

7 Oct

actiavted-charcoal-scrub This stuff is the bomb for inflamed, break out prone skin, it is literally kryptonite to pimples.

This face scrub is chock full of antibacterial, healing, purifying ingredients. Now I will admit it does look a little odd & I did have my doubts about applying something goopy & black to my face to help with breakouts & blackheads – I just couldn’t figure out how that would work.

I was sure my pores would look dirtier & that my face may not come clean. But this stuff is magic. I like to gently scrub it in before I get in the shower then let it steam into my pores for five minutes before washing it off in the shower with my favourite cleanser (be aware it is a little messy) but & I am left with bright, sparkling, clear skin!

What makes this scrub so darn good? The activated charcoal gives this scrub its anti-acne properties as it draws out impurities, unclogs pores & purifies your skin leaving it clean & clear. The Shea butter is great for soothing inflamed skin, the coconut oil & turmeric are antibacterial & the baking soda gives your skin a nice fine scrub for super clean pores.

Activated Charcoal Anti-Acne Scrub a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 1 t Raw Sugar
  • 2 t almond meal
  • 3 t Shea butter
  • 1 t coconut oil
  • 8 drops lavender essential oil
  • 1 t activated charcoal
  • 1/2 t tumeric powder
  • 1 t bicarb soda

Gently mix all ingredients together in a bowl, except the shea butter & coconut oil, which you should gently melt by placing in a double boiler (or my home made solution of a canning jar sitting in a pot of simmering water). Once the oil & butter has melted stir it into the other ingredients & mix well.

I use this scrub several times a week as a deep cleanse for my skin, It leaves my skin looking brighter, clearer & the blackheads on my nose disappear 🙂

You are welcome 🙂 Mama-going-natural-signature
