If you are one of them who leaves no stones unturned when it comes to skincare, you must have heard the name of face mask, and most probably, you’ve used some of them too. Or, if you have recently realized that you should take care of your skin then listen (kidding, I mean read :p ) very carefully, Activated Charcoal Mask must be included in your skincare toolbox.
Today, I am going to discuss everything about one of the best types of face masks, which is ‘Activated Charcoal Mask,’ and will provide my suggestions on which Charcoal Mask you should use. And, as a bonus, some tips on using this mask for the best result will be given at the end of the article.
So, buckle up, my friend. Let’s get excited to make your beautiful face more shiny and attractive.
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated Charcoal is a distinctive type of carbon that is produced by exposing common carbon to high heat. Due to this high heat, numerous tiny holes are created in this type of carbon (i.e., charcoal), which can absorb toxins, impurities, and chemicals. Due to this unique benefit, activated charcoal is widely used as face masks and body spa ingredients.
Though it is charcoal, its chemical bindings are different from regular charcoal that we use in grill chicken.

Benefits of Activated Charcoal Mask
People are using masks of different types for removing impurities for thousands of years. The most widely used masks were different types of clay masks. But, recent advancements of science and technology have limited their use and almost replaced them with modern alternatives. Activated Charcoal Mask is one of them.
Let’s dive in and see what benefits it can offer to your overall health.
Cleanse Your Skin Deeply
During the day’s hard work and hustle-bustle, we get exposed to various types of impurities and bacteria. All of these can impact our skin health significantly. A recent study found that using activated charcoal face mask can peel off most of the trapped impurities & bacteria and leave you with clean & fresh skin.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions among young adults and mature people. Almost 80-90% of the world population faces some sort of acne-related problems at any stage of their lives. Though acne is not that harmful, it is very much irritating.
Using activated charcoal mask can bring you another step closer to acne-free skin.
As acne is the result of clogged dead cells, bacteria, and oil in the hair follicles. An activated charcoal mask can peel them off through its tiny holes.
But, one thing you should have known that the efficiency of acne treatment largely depends on its root cause and severity of it.
Keeps Pore Smaller
We all know the air is much more polluted than it was 100 years ago. But do we know how much polluted the air is? You can read an informative article here.
But, if you don’t have time to read this, let me tell you, my friend.
Due to widespread pollution, many impurities clog our pores. Pores are used by our cells to breathe. But, as they are clogged up, cells can’t breathe properly, and as a result, we face many difficulties like acne, itchiness, rash, etc. All these skin conditions make our skin rough and pore larger. And, who loves large pores? No one.
So, if you already have large pores that you don’t want or if you don’t want your pores to appear larger, then you must consider using activated charcoal masks regularly. (But, note that regularly doesn’t mean daily. So, how frequently? Well, I have discussed it in detail in the last part of the article.)
Heals Insect Bites, Skin Cuts
Activated charcoal can speed-up the healing process of itchiness and burning caused by insect bites or simple kitchen cuts.
Activated charcoal can extract the toxic elements like insect venom and if infused with essential oils, like olive oil, jojoba seed oil, can soothe the spot quickly.
So, there are some cool benefits of activated charcoal. Isn’t it right?
But, before we jump into the next part, I want to ask you a question.

Aloe leaf juice, well known for its anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties. In addition to keeping your skin purified, aloe leaf juice helps to moisturize the skin and fights off pro-radicals and wrinkles.
Activated charcoal sometimes may peel off skin moisturizer, which is not a good thing. Aloe leaf juice will help to restore the moisture balance of your skin.
Green tea leaf extract works like magic when it comes to reducing aging symptoms. Many of us use different artificial products to make us look younger but completely overlook the effectiveness of this all-natural ingredient.
Green tea leaf extract soothes itching skin, reduces skin redness, and helps to recover the natural glow of the skin, and with all these, a sweet & exquisite fragrance is offered to lift your overall experience.

How to Use Activated Charcoal Mask?
- Before applying the mask, clean your face thoroughly with a good face wash or face soap bar. A clean face can boost the process of detoxification and the effectiveness of a charcoal mask.
- Take the required amount of mask to cover your whole face and apply it gently. Cover your forehead, chin, cheeks, and nose, but stay careful, so that is doesn’t get into your eyes.
- Gently rub it on the surface of your face with your fingertips.
- After applying, please wait for 5- 20 minutes and then wash your face with light warm water. Desired water temperature is 2-3 degrees higher than your body temperature.
- Now, gently dry your face with a soft cloth and apply face moisturizer.
