Step 1: Ingredients: The first thing you’re going to do when making your face mask is to make sure that you have all the ingredients and tools. They are pretty common items: two bowls, a brush, measuring spoons, and white non-toxic glue.
Step 2: Preparation: When you’re getting ready to mix your mask, make sure your hands and dishes are clean in order to prevent germs and dirt from getting into your mask and onto your face.
In a bowl, crush about one teaspoon of charcoal until it becomes a fine powder. Set this aside. In a separate bowl add enough white glue to cover the surface of your face. Add the charcoal and mix until it’s blended evenly.
