Think Outside The Tub: DIY Detox Face Mask
At Kush Queen, we are all about bath time. Some candles, some herb, a Kush Queen bath bomb... when you are looking to get relaxed AF, all of the above will definitely do the trick. It has, however, been brought to our attention that a bath may not be the perfect option for everyone. Maybe you live in an apartment building that hates baths, maybe you hate baths (or just haven’t jumped on the bath time bandwagon, yet)? That’s fine, we are here to take care of you, even if you aren't a “bath person”.
Did you know you don’t actually need a tub to have a quality Kush Queen bombing experience? That’s right! We have created some pretty stellar (and hella easy) DIY recipes that will take your bath bombing experience to new heights. YAAAAY!
To kick this series off we would like to introduce to you, our DIY charcoal face mask! Throughout the day our pores actually intake a ton of toxins from all around us. YUCK, Right? I mean, when your pores aren’t cleared, it dulls your shine, and that sucks! But, worry not, this mask is kinda awesome!
Why so awesome you ask? Well, the ingredients in our bath bombs + a few extras we’ve thrown in, are actually perfect for detoxing those pores, exfoliating your skin and giving you a beautiful, fresh glow! Let’s break it down.
Charcoal - Can bind to and help pull out dirt from your pores, reducing their appearance and detoxing your skin.
Green Tea - Helps to flush out toxins, reduce inflammation and can even improve your skins elasticity.
Sodium Bicarbonate - Works as an exfoliant and helps to reduce oily skin.
Citric Acid - Can help to reduce dark spots, clogged pores and wrinkles.
Epsom Salt - Can fight blackheads and exfoliate skin.
Olive Oil - Penetrates deep to cleanse and moisturize.
CBD - Can help reduce the signs of aging and protect from UV ray damage.
Sounds amazing, right? Told you! Now that you know why this mask is a must try, it’s time to grab your favorite Kush Queen bath bomb so we can get started!
DIY DETOXIFYING CHARCOAL FACIAL MASK RECIPE
2 green tea bags
1 tbsp EVOO
½ tbsp Activated Charcoal
1 Kush Queen bath bomb of your choosing
¼ cup purified water
Steep 2 tea bags in ¼ C boiling water for 4-6 minutes
Place your bath bomb into a bowl and pour green tea mixture over it.
Let sit for 5 minutes and then stir to fully incorporate.
Add EVOO and Charcoal and stir well.
Apply the mask to your face using a clean foundation brush and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and follow up with a toner (such as witch hazel or micellar water) to remove the remaining charcoal residue. Finish up with your favorite facial oil or moisturizer.
The recipe makes enough mixture for several masks, so you will want to transfer it to an airtight container and store in a cool dry place. Some separation may occur, so stir well before each use. It should also be noted that charcoal can actually be a little messy. Pick a safe space when prepping your mask and maybe don’t wear your favorite outfit.
