Activated Charcoal Detox Mask Recipe with Free Printable Labels

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.

Created as a dupe to the clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask, this activated charcoal detox mask recipe draws out impurities, clears up blackheads and removes excess oil for reduced breakouts and faster healing times.

Created as a dupe to the clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask, this activated charcoal detox mask recipe draws out impurities, clears up blackheads and removes excess oil for reduced breakouts and faster healing times.

Like clariSEA’s Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask, my version is made with no preservatives and all natural ingredients that include kaolin clay, sea salt, mineral salt, calendula and activated charcoal. To make it, simply weigh out all of the ingredients needed and mix! It’s great on acne prone skin, or as a spot treatment when you are experiencing acne breakouts. (I found this worked really well for me during hormone related breakouts.)

Finally, I’ve also created free printable labels for my activated charcoal detox mask recipe. Simply download the free printable labels (found after the recipe) to gift these as DIY bridesmaid gifts so everyone looks pore-fect for the big day! (If you have an upcoming wedding, create an Amazon Wedding Registry! Not only can you save products from other websites to your Amazon Wedding Registry, but you’ll also receive a 10% 0ff coupon good on select items from across Amazon. See their website for details.)

Activated Charcoal Detox Mask Recipe

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.15 oz. sea salt, fine ground
.1 oz. pink Himalayan (mineral) salt or Celtic sea (mineral blend) salt, fine ground
.1 oz. hardwood activated charcoal powder
.05 oz. calendula flower powder

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out all the ingredients and combine in a glass bowl. Mix well to combine.

Pour the activated charcoal detox mask into one 8 oz. jar. I specifically used a clear plastic 8 oz. low profile jar and a 200 mL cosmetic style jar from Infinity Jars for this project. (My activated charcoal detox mask recipe fills one 8 oz. container. To fill additional jars, double the recipe as needed.) Alternately, you can fill two 4 oz. jars with this recipe. I also like the 4 oz. glass salve jars for this recipe.

To use your activated charcoal detox mask, simply combine 1 Tablespoon of the mask with 1/2 Tablespoon of water in your hand to form a paste. Then massage the mask onto your skin in a circular motion. Rinse the mask off with warm water once it has dried.

Alternately, rather than mixing your mask with water, you can also mix your mask with aloe vera juice, plain Greek yogurt or rosehip seed oil to suit your skin’s individual needs.

Side Notes:

For more sensitive skin, reduce the amount of salt to no more than .2 oz. total. Additionally, if you have calendula petals, you can simply run them through a coffee grinder to create a powder.

Additionally, while clariSEA’s Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask contains bamboo activated charcoal powder, I chose to use hardwood activated charcoal powder from Rocky Mountain Essentials. It’s both made and packaged in the USA and works well for detoxification and use as an ingredient in high end cosmetic products.

Free Printable Labels.

You can download the free printable activated charcoal mask labels for this recipe here. For the clear plastic low profile jar, I printed my labels onto a full size clear gloss inkjet label sheet. For the beautiful, deep ultraviolet (these jars appear black) light proof jar, I printed my labels onto a full size white label sheet. I acquired both types of my label sheets from WorldLabel who sells quality labels in bulk at reasonable prices.

Detox Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. clear melt and pour soap base
2 oz. shea butter (or sal butter)
.35 oz. rosehip seed oil (or safflower oil)
.15 oz. castor oil
1 mL sea buckthorn oil (or tamanu oil)
1 mL + 5 drops lavender essential oil
1 mL tea tree oil

4.75 oz. granulated white sugar (or caster sugar)
.25 oz. activated charcoal powder

Instructions:

To create a variety of gemstone shaped solid sugar scrubs you’ll need two Cool Jewels Diamond Ice Trays. (Alternately you can also use an all diamond silicone mold or ice cube tray of your choice.)

Begin by weighing out the shea butter (or sal butter) using a digital scale. Place it in a double boiler and allow to melt. (Alternately you can melt the butter in your microwave at 50%-60% power. Be sure to use a lower setting to prevent your butter from becoming grainy.)

Now weigh out the clear soap base and cut into small chunks. Combine in the double boiler with the melted butter. Stir the mixture until the soap melts completely then remove from heat.

Weigh out the rosehip seed oil (or safflower oil) and the castor oil. Stir into the melted sugar scrub mixture.

Next, you a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the sea buckthorn oil (or tamanu oil.) Stir into the melted ingredients.

Do the same with the lavender and tea tree essential oils, using a fresh pipette for each ingredient.

Now weigh out the granulated white sugar and the activated charcoal powder into a 2-cup glass Pyrex measuring cup. (You can use caster sugar for less exfoliation or for more sensitive skin.) Mix with a fork to incorporate the two ingredients together.

Slowly pour the melted sugar scrub base into the dry sugar and activated charcoal mixture. Whisk the melted ingredients into the sugar and activated charcoal until thoroughly combined, then pour the sugar scrub mixture into your mold cavities. You will have enough sugar scrub to make 9-10 gemstone shaped solid sugar scrubs.

Learn how to make this easy detox sugar scrub recipe now for a natural approach to skin care and to help keep acne from occurring. These fun black diamond and gem shaped solid sugar scrubs can be use on your face daily or as needed as well as to oily and acne prone areas of your body.

Place your molds into the refrigerator until the solid sugar scrubs have hardened completely, then pop out of the mold cavities and package as desired.

(Please note that if you live in a warmer climate or will be selling and/or shipping these gemstone shaped solid sugar scrubs, these could melt. You can avoid this by increasing the amount of melt and pour soap base slightly or and/or decreasing the amount of liquid at room temperature oil called for in this detox sugar scrub recipe. During fall/winter or for personal use in a climate controlled environment, this detox sugar scrub recipe can be kept as is.)

To use your detox sugar scrubs, simply mash part of one gemstone shaped solid sugar scrub in very wet hands and massage onto wet skin. Then simply rinse and pat dry.

Make this easy homemade baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe to help shrink pores and conquer blackheads!

Make this easy homemade baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe to help shrink pores and conquer blackheads while cleansing your face at the same time.

Baking soda has long been used as a home remedy to help tackle tough acne and pimples. This baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe takes that notion and adds naturally cleansing oils to help clean your skin and exfoliate it at the same time.

Keep in mind, though, that there are mixed reviews on using baking soda as a home remedy for acne. I’ve read a lot of both negative and positive information on using baking soda in a scrub or mask as an anti-acne treatment. Some find that baking soda works wonders on their acne. However, there are others who are super sensitive to baking soda. And if this is you, and baking soda causes uncomfortable redness or burning, then ditch the baking soda and opt for trying this coconut oil face scrub recipe using fine sugar or apricot kernel meal in lieu of the baking soda.

Following are a few baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipes you can try based on your skin type. But feel free to experiment with your ingredients to find the best match for your skin type!
