This post turned out to be way different then what I set out to do earlier today. It is officially the last weekend of October. Time has flown by quicker than a witch on a broom stick! I have not even had time to watch any of my favorite Halloween themed movies. In the current holiday spirit, I ended up with this sweet Jack O Lantern Detox Face Mask. I have currently been obsessed with watching these girls on youtube do 31 day Halloween tutorials. The time and talent! Props to the humans who do this especially my favorite, Jordan Hanz, she is amazing! This Facial Friday is inspired by the art of face painting. Also the charcoal detox face mask was so thick I did not need it to cover my entire face.
This mask is a mixture of two mask. The orange you see on my face is from the recipe used in my Facial Friday #3 post I did earlier this month featuring a Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. The recipe in today’s post and the black part of the mask you see on my face in the picture above is a pumpkin charcoal detox mask. Just look how thick this mask turned out!
The first ingredient I want to mention is the Red Moroccan Rhassoul Clay also know as Red Clay. This clay is known as a great detoxifying clay in assisting with drawing out blackheads and other impurities from the skin. It has a great absorbency and helps skin reduce dryness or flakiness. This clay can be used daily as a cleanser and will not strip the skin of its essential oils. This clay is pricey but a little goes a long way. Having the highest mineral content of all the clays this one is great to stock on your skincare ingredients rack. Avocado oil is high in vitamin E which will provide a high defense of oxidation, and prevent damage to cells by free radicals. Glycerine has so many uses but with all the detox going on I wanted to add it for the moisturizing benefits. Charcoal is a well known detoxifier and an effective one at that. Sugar and pumpkin have been the theme of some of this months mask. If you are new to my blog please read the other Facial Friday post to see why I adore these two ingrediants.
Jack O Lantern Halloween Detox Mask
1 Tablespoon Organic Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Tablespoon Red Clay
1/2 Tablespoon Raw sugar
1/4 teaspoon Charcoal Powder
1/2 teaspoon Avocado Oil
1/4 teaspoon Glycerine
You know the drill, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until well combined. I applied this mask on my problem areas that needed major detox. The mask will dry quickly so I would rinse off after 5 Minutes or you can use it as a spot treatment on blemishes.
I hope you found this post fun and insightful. If you are celebrating Halloween this weekend and painting your faces, this mask may be perfect for drawing out all the sweat, dirt, makeup, and glue. I loved this one and it has by far been my favorite mask to date!
