DIY Charcoal Face Mask


DIY Charcoal Face Mask

  1. Using a small microwave safe dish melt some coconut oil. I usually place a spoon full in there and whatever is not used I pour back in my jar. This is to ensure I get a full 1/4 tsp of coconut oil.
  2. In a non-metal dish add in your Activated Charcoal Powder, Aloe Vera Gel, Distilled Water, and Coconut Oil.
  3. Using a plastic spoon mix together all the ingredients until fully combined. The mixture should not be too thick or too runny. It should be the consistency of a hand or body cream. If it is too thick simply add in a tiny bit of water at a time. If too thin, mix in a bit more charcoal powder.
  4. Once mixed, take a makeup brush and apply the mask to your face. Please avoid your eyes. See my photo above in this post for how I apply the mask.
  5. Leave mask to dry for 15-20 minutes.
  6. When the mask is dry, using warm water and either paper towels, a dark face cloth, or disposable expandable towels, remove the mask.
  7. If using paper towels, fold towel in half, dampen, and wipe to remove the mask. Repeat until face is fully clean.
  8. Should you wish to use a dark face cloth (because charcoal stains) simply wet the cloth with warm water, ring out, and start to remove the mask. Repeat this until your face is clean.
  9. If you choose to use the disposable expandable towels you will need to use a few of them. Simply wet with warm water, ring, and wipe face. Repeat this until your face is clean.


Please Note that charcoal powder will stain. Placing a paper towel underneath where you will be mixing together your mask is a great way to prevent stains.

Activated Charcoal Powder will pull toxins from metals so please ensure you do not use any metals to mix or measure your mask.

Also remove any metal facial piercings prior to putting on the mask.
