I’ve seen so many post’s about people using black charcoal peel off masks and the Biore Pore Strips. I’ve tried the Biore strips and they work great! It pulled out so many blackheads! But, it costs $6 and I don’t think it’s worth buying.
I decided to buy some Activated Charcoal powder so I can make my own mask. One for the face (peel off mask) and one for lightening my underarms.
I bought the activated charcoal powder from eBay for $10 and $5 shipping. I mixed it with a clear cucumber peel off mask I bought from Walgreens for about $4. The charcoal powder is so fine and a little bit goes a long way, so I know it will last a long time. It is definitely worth buying!
Now for the lightening, I got the idea from @farahdhukai on instagram. All you have to do is mix some charcoal powder with some honey and then use a thick makeup brush to cover your underarm or any dark area on your body.
