Recipe: Glycolic Charcoal Facial Mask
We all know that face masks can be a luxurious way to treat our skin, and most masks address one or two issues. We wanted to create a mask that clarifies, exfoliates, hydrates, and soothes, so we made this simple recipe for a Glycolic Charcoal Facial Mask!
Our Charcoal Cream Mask is loaded with clarifying activated charcoal and extreme hydrators like hyaluronic acid, organic olive and jojoba oils, plus antioxidant-rich organic rooibos, toning DMAE and more. Combine this great mask with glycolic acid for exfoliating and refining and your skin will look absolutely flawless, smooth and glowing!
Glycolic acid is the smallest and most highly soluble of the alpha hydroxy acids, making it especially efficacious in exfoliants and chemical peels. Learn more about glycolic acid and other common acids used in skin care here.
