Do you know peel-off masks? It is the secret weapon of women with bright minds. Less famous than their classic cousins, these beauty treatments are perfect for clarifying oily or combination skin. They tighten pores, capture impurities, and add radiance in no time. In addition, they are rather fun to use: they form a film on the face which is removed as if it were a second skin. Here are our five favorite recipes for concocting a charcoal peel-off mask at home!
The Peel-Off Mask For Oily Skin
Do you have oily or combination skin? Do you want to purify your epidermis deeply? This recipe is made for you, but before preparing this treatment, clean your face thoroughly with soapy water to remove all traces of cosmetic products.
Here is the list of essential ingredients for this DIY mask:
- 6g of activated carbon;
- 4 g of powdered green clay;
- 20g jelly;
- 40 ml of water;
- a few drops of rose water.
Once the products are combined, warm the water in the microwave to dissolve the gelatin. Stir everything together, then add the charcoal and clay until you have a smooth paste. Heat the mixture again for a few seconds so that it thickens before incorporating 3 or 4 drops of floral water. The rose water will delicately perfume the mask and brighten your complexion.
Let the preparation cool, then apply it evenly on your skin. As it dries, the peel-off mask will form an astringent film that traps sebum and impurities. All you have to do is remove it in one go before rinsing your face with clean water. You can complete your cocooning moment by applying a little rose water with a cotton ball.
The Peel-Off Mask Against Blackheads
Here is an express recipe for eliminating blackheads in 5 minutes flat! Heat 40 ml of almond drink in the microwave. Add 20 g of gelatin to the vegetable milk and mix everything. Add a teaspoon of honey, half the juice of a lemon, and one spoon of charcoal. Mix this preparation and let it cool down before applying it. Be careful, however, not to use this product on the fragile contour of your eyes. When the peel-off mask starts to pull, remove it from the top of your face. Rinse your skin with clear water, then moisturize it with some apricot oil.
The Purifying Mask For All Skin Types
This recipe is ideal for cleansing the skin and removing blemishes in a single step.
Make a peel-off mask with six simple ingredients:
- One teaspoon of powdered activated charcoal;
- One teaspoon of powdered red clay;
- One teaspoon of honey;
- One teaspoon of apricot oil;
- 20g jelly;
- 40 ml of water.
Heat the water in the microwave before adding all your ingredients. Mix and wait a few moments for the preparation to cool. Apply the product to your face and leave it on for a quarter of an hour. It will dry and form a film that is easy to remove. Once the mask is finished, cleanse your skin with cool water for a “radiance boost” effect!
The Egg And Charcoal Anti-Blemish Mask
Here is an original preparation with an egg and charcoal! Start by separating the egg white and the yolk and set the yolk aside. Next, beat the egg white with a fork with one teaspoon of powdered activated charcoal. Your mask is ready, but to apply it, you will cut strips of tissue paper 5 cm wide and take a brush.
Place a ribbon on your nose and brush it with your preparation. Repeat the process on your chin, forehead, and cheeks. All you have to do is wait and let the magic happen. When the mask solidifies, gently remove it and wash your face with a mild soap before moisturizing. That’s it!
The Peel-Off Mask For Sensitive Skin
Is your skin reactive? Is she prone to redness and irritation? This mask for sensitive skin is perfect for you! Ready in just 2 minutes, it will change your life. Here is the recipe for the peel-off mask for fragile skin. Mix 15 g of gelatin in a bowl with three tablespoons of vegetable almond drink and one tablespoon of aloe vera gel.
Add an egg white to your preparation and one spoonful of charcoal, then apply the mixture while still warm, carefully avoiding the eye area. Thirty minutes later, remove this mask with a single gesture before washing your face with your favorite soap. Your skin is now rid of its impurities. End your beauty moment with a moisturizer to soothe your sensitive skin.
