2 Things To Do With Activated Charcoal

This is my version of the peel off charcoal mask that I make at home. There are many versions of this mask on the internet, but this is how I make mine at the moment.

For the mask normally people use Elmers glue and activated charcoal. I have even seen some use honey and other products.  At the time when  I wanted to try this mask I didn’t have elmers glue or honey. Then I remembered that I had the Cucumber Peel Off Mask from Freeman Beauty. I thought why not, this should work. The mask pulls off with no problem and will less likely to hurt compared to the glue.

Be real we have all seen the videos of people RIPPING the mask off or trying to since it was so stuck on their faces. Not for  me.

What to do-

  • 1 Medium-largish blob of the mask
  • 1-2 Capsules of activated charcoal
  • Non-metallic bowl and spoon for mixing
  • Mix together and apply to your face then wait until it is dry and wash off. 

Basically I take the cucumber mask and one- two activated charcoal capsule and mix in a bowl. I then take a flat foundation brush and apply the mask on my face.  Wait until it dries completely. That is the KEY. So after about 30-45 mins, I start to pull it off by starting at the edges, or just making silly exaggerated face to help separate the mask from my face. Works every time. All while having my husband asking me if I’m alright. Yes dear, I am.  After the mask is off I have the softest skin ever!! It’s the best.


Another way to make a charcoal mask is by mixing it with Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. I love this stuff! With the power and benefits of this clay and the active charcoal is awesome. Bentionite clay  is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. Your can read more about Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay in one of my pervious post. 

So to make this next mask is super easy.

  • 1-2 Capsules of activated charcoal
  • 1-3 tablespoons of bentonite clay or Aztec Secret Indian healing clay
  • 1-3 tablespoons or apple cider vinegar or water
  • Non-metallic bowl and spoon for mixing

Mix altogether and apply. Wash off when completely  dried. Your skin will love you. Period.
