This is a simple starter charcoal mask recipe that is meant to be washed off (not peeled off). 

You will need:

  • 2 capsules of activated charcoal

  • 2 teaspoons of Aloe Vera gel

  • 1 squirt of rosewater

  • 2 drops of lavender essential oil for normal skin (or 2 drops of tea tree oil for acne-prone skin)

  • A container for the mask

This recipe creates a single mask.

Start by opening up the activated charcoal capsules and pouring them into a bowl. Then, add the Aloe Vera gel, the rosewater, and the oil. Blend the ingredients together until everything is smooth; you shouldn’t have any lumps. Now you’re done!

Apply to clean face for ten to twenty minutes and wash it off with warm water. Then, simply pat off the excess water with a towel. Make sure you document the whole thing on Snapchat or in a instastory.
