If life has taken its toll on your face, consider making a charcoal mask infused with cannabis. This will help clear your skin, soothe irritated skin and make your skin look brighter overall.
Activated charcoal is known for drawing bacteria, dirt, oil and other yucky stuff out of your pores. It also acts as an exfoliant because it leaves your skin clean and smooth. Add cannabis and it can do wonders for your skin. Cannabis has a relaxing effect, and it also acts as an anti-inflammatory. Also, cannabis oil can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Now that you know the benefits, here is how you can make your own cannabis infused activated charcoal mask at home. These are the ingredients you will need:
- 1 tsp activated charcoal
- 2 chamomile tea bags (steeped and cooled, helps with wrinkles)
- ¼ cup witch hazel (helps clear up acne)
- 2 tbsp turmeric (anti-inflammatory)
- ½ cup aloe vera gel (anti-inflammatory)
- 3 tsp cannabis oil (you can use CBD oil, or if you aren’t able to get it, hempseed oil also works)
Combine all the ingredients except the chamomile tea bags in a glass bowl until they form a gel. It is best to apply the mask when your pores are open, that way you will be able to get the maximum benefits from this cannabis-infused activated charcoal mask. Take a hot shower before you apply the mask. This will help open your pores. Clean your face and then gradually dab the mask onto your skin. You might want to use a foundation brush for application. Be sure to avoid your eyes, nose and mouth. Then place the steeped chamomile bags on your face. Breathe in and relax. Leave on for about ten minutes and then rinse off.
