Start with cleansing the face

    The first step to start using this mask is to first clean your face and remove any product that you may have on.
  • 2
    Wash your face with your regular face wash and water and pat dry.

Applying the mask

  • 1
    After you have washed and dried your face, it is now time to apply the charcoal face mask.
  • 2
    In order for the mask to work in the best possible way and give you the most benefits, it is important to apply a nice layer all over the face.
  • 3
    For this, you can start by applying the charcoal face mask from around the nose area. Alternatively, you can also start applying it from your cheek area and use your fingertips to gently massage and take the product downwards towards your chin area.
  • 4
    Take some of the product on your fingertips and put it on the bridge of your nose.
  • 5
    Now start gently rubbing it outwards with a downward motion, using your fingertips, so that the face mask now starts moving towards your lower cheek area.
  • 6
    Slowly keep rubbing the product so that it covers your chin and jawline, and also the rest of your cheeks. You can also keep dabbing at it so that the product settles on the surface of your skin.
  • 7
    Apply it on the forehead and near your hair line.
  • 8
    The charcoal face mask has to come all the way till near your ears and above and below your lips, as well as in between your eye brow area. You also need to make sure you properly apply it around the bridge of your nose and on the corners of your nose, so that all the dirt in these areas can also be pulled out.
  • 9
    Do make sure to leave some distance around the skin near your eyes, so that the product does not accidentally touch your eye area.
  • 10
    If you feel that the product is thinning out and is not applying properly or evenly all over your face, do feel free to take a little bit more on your finger tips and apply on the areas where you feel it is required. However, do not take too much, as a thin and single layer should be enough.
  • 11
    You might have to wait for about 10 to 15 minutes for the charcoal mask to properly start drying out. While the mask is getting dry, you will feel the pull on your skin. Do not touch the mask or itch your skin while the charcoal face mask is drying.

Rinsing it off

    After you can feel that the charcoal mask has completely dried off, touch it on the side to see if it is absolutely dry or still soft.
  • 2
    Once the entire mask is dry, you can rinse it off using regular tap water, cool or warm, while massaging off the mask with your fingertips.
  • 3
    Gently rub and massage the face while you are rinsing off the face mask instead of rubbing at it too hard.
  • 4
    Use a soft towel to pat your face dry, and take care to not rub the skin.
  • 5
    Alternatively, if you do not want to rinse off your face with water right away, you can take a soft hand towel or washcloth and dampen it. Then use it to gently remove the product from your face.

Finishing the routine

    One thing that you should definitely do after you have removed the charcoal mask from your face is to use your regular moisturizer. This is because using the mask will pull out the impurities from your skin, but in the process, it will also remove some of the natural oils from your skin.
  • 2
    When you use your moisturizer, it will help to seal in the moisture and avoid any excessive drying of the skin, which will help your skin look younger and more nourished, as well as soft.

  • Avoid using these masks too often, as this can also end up removing your skin’s natural oils, which can leave your skin dry and prone to faster ageing.
  • Do not try to make your own charcoal face mask at home, especially with superglue. It is best to use a charcoal face mask from a reputed skin care brand, as using the one that you make at home may harm your skin and cause burns or more serious damage.
  • Do not use the charcoal face mask if you are suffering from any skin disease, such as eczema, or if you have very dry or sensitive skin.

In case you have used the product and notice any irritation or discomfort, wash it off and consult a dermatologist for the same.
