Have your children wash their face at least once per day.
Hydrate: with water! Sodas and sugary drinks are fine on occasion, but should not be the norm.
Eat more fruits and vegetables, avoid sugary treats. When re-fueling your body aim for a balanced diet. Always include a protein, carb, and fat.
Don’t touch your face.
DIY Charcoal Face Soap Ingredients & Tools

This recipe, when used with the mold linked above, usually makes approximately 10 bars of soap. One batch generally lasts around a year and a half. When we are close to running out, I make another batch. When the bars are set I wrap them individually in wax paper and store them in a gallon sized Ziploc bag.

Simple Melt and Pour Charcoal Face Wash
- 2 LBS Melt and Pour Goats Milk Soap Base
- 4 tsp Activated Charcoal Powder
- 1 tsp Tea Tree Essential Oil
Bring water in the bottom pot of a double boiler to a boil.
While the water is heating prepare the soap base by cutting it into small cubes.
Put the small cubes of soap base into the top pot on the double boiler and allow to melt completely. Stir frequently until all of the soap base is melted.
Once melted add 4 tsp of activated charcoal powder to the soap base.
Whisk charcoal and soap base together until fully combined.
Remove the charcoal and soap base from the double boiler and allow to cool briefly (1-2 minutes). Continue to stir.
Add the tea tree oil to the soap base and charcoal. Whisk to combine.
Allow to Set
Pour the finished soap into the silicon molds. Distribute evenly.
Allow the soap molds to sit 3-4 hours untouched in a flat, dry space until fully hardened.
