You can make an excellent facial mask using Blackstrap Molasses and a few other ingredients.
You will need:
1 Tbsp. Organic Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses (I use this Brand and would highly recommend the same. If you can’t find this brand any brand is fine as long as it is organic and unsulphured)
1 Tsp. Green Tea Powder (Buy here)
2-3 drops of Essential Oil of your choice- Optional (use Tea Tree if you have acne prone skin, Ylang Ylang if you have dry/mature skin, Geranium if you have combination skin)
Mix everything together(Molasses is very thick and gooey so its not easy to mix the powder, add a few drops of water if its too thick but make sure there are no lumps) and apply it to your face. Rinse off after 20 minutes.
This facial mask will exfoliate and detoxify your skin and reveal a glowing compexion. Ideal facial mask to deal with acne and blackheads.
Do this once a week and see the difference for yourself.
