To unclog pores, boil parsley in water, wash and exfoliate the skin, apply a charcoal mask, rinse, wipe the skin with parsley water and apply moisturizer. The supplies you need for this 45-minute process are skin cleanser, an exfoliant, a charcoal mask, cotton balls, parsley, water, tissues and a moisturizer.

  1. Make a parsley toner

    Put a bunch of fresh parsley in a pot of boiling water, cover it, and let the mixture sit for 30 minutes. Discard the parsley, and reserve the water.

  2. Wash and exfoliate the skin

    Wash the skin with an oil-free cleanser, and rinse thoroughly. Apply a nickel-sized dollop of exfoliating scrub, and rub it over the skin for one minute. Rinse thoroughly.

  3. Apply a charcoal mask

    Apply a charcoal mask, let it dry, and remove it with warm water.

  4. Tone the skin with parsley water

    Dip several cotton balls in the parsley water, and rub them over the clogged pores. Discard the cotton balls.

  5. Moisturize the skin

    Wash and dry your hands. Rub a dime-sized amount of oil-free moisturizer between your fingertips, and smooth it over the skin. Apply additional moisturizer to dry patches. Wait five minutes, then blot the skin with a tissue to absorb excess product.
