Before you make a black mask of activated charcoal, you should prepare the skin. Preparation of the drug is carried out in several stages:

  • Tablets of activated charcoal should be crushed and mixed with gelatin.
  • The resulting powder is diluted with cold milk and mixed well.
  • Without waiting until the powder has dissolved, the mixture must be put in the microwave and held there for 15 seconds.
  • The mixture is then cooled to room temperature.
  • The mask is applied until completely dry.

Before applying the mask, steam the face over the decoction of chamomile (with normal skin) or over the decoction of calendula (for fatty) for 5-7 minutes. If the skin is too oily and it has a lot of clogged pores, then a steam bath is done for at least 10 minutes. Steam maximizes the pores and mask, penetrating deep inside the epidermis, cleans them well.

Apply the composition on the skin very densely with a cosmetic brush. You can apply the product with your fingers. Carefully apply several layers of mass over the facial massage lines. Some cosmetologists advise a thick layer to apply a remedy only to the problem area. You can try for mixed skin to apply a remedy only to the T-zone, which most often suffers from black dots and rashes, and with oily and acne to the entire surface of the face.

Completely relax the face. Brush or fingertips apply the mask with driving movements to the places of accumulation of black dots. The mass must penetrate well into the pores.

Do not put a mask on the whole face. Apply the mask in several layers. The thicker and more uniformly it will be applied, the easier it will then move away from the skin. Do not apply the mask to the delicate skin around the eyes.

Allow mask to freeze completely. It will take about 15 minutes. At the same time, a slight tightening of the skin is possible.

Carefully remove the film, preferably completely. Possible redness of the skin. Rinse your face with warm water and apply a cream or cosmetic oil to the skin.
