  1. Remove make up and use a gentle cleanser to clean the face. Pat dry.

  2. Open the activated charcoal capsule and add the contents to a small glass or ceramic bowl. Discard the empty capsule.

  3. First, add bentonite clay and gelatin. Then add boiling water and mix well with a mini silicone spatula (avoid metal spoons as the metal may weaken the health properties of the bentonite clay). The gelatin will thicken up the mask. Add 1 drop tea tree oil and mix again.

  4. Use a mask brush to apply a layer of the mask to the skin, avoiding eye brows and be careful not to get too close the eyes.

  5. Apply mask rather quickly as the mask will continue to thicken up. If the mask in the bowl dries up sooner than you get to apply the mask, add a 1/2 to 1 tsp of boiling hot water again to make the mask liquid again to apply.

  6. Once you have a thick layer of the mask on the skin, allow to dry about 20-30 minutes. You may need to wait longer depending on the thickness of the mask. You will feel a slight tingling sensation from the bentonite clay and tea tree oil, both help to remove impurities from the skin.

  7. Once the mask is dry, start on an edge (chin or forehead) and slowly peel off the mask until it's completely gone. You can use a warm washcloth to remove any remaining mask on the face.

  8. Apply a toner and then follow with a moisturizer to keep the skin nourished.
