Zits are No Match for This Magic Ingredient

Bella Breakdown

It’s been fun, acne. The secret ingredient to getting rid of acne is activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is the stuff used in water filters that attracts water’s impurities.

It also acts like a magnet when used on your face, pulling toxins, dirt, and oil from pores. It has antibacterial properties and is gentle on the skin.

There are many charcoal cleansers you can buy, or you can make your own.

To make one at home, combine 1 teaspoon (five tablets) of activated charcoal, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1/4 cup unscented pure castile soap, 1 tablespoon of witch hazel, and five drops of tea tree oil in a bowl. Mix well.

Do a patch test before using the solution to make sure that you do not have a reaction to it.
