Homemade Activated Charcoal Face Mask

This is a very easy and cheap DIY which is suitable for all skin types and works wonders at detoxifying skin and fighting acne and blackheads. Charcoals masks are either not that easily available or are way too pricey and in half that price one can buy activated charcoal and make their own mask which works just as well.
