When you think of charcoal, your first thought probably goes to summer cooking on the grill, but charcoal is good for more than just delivering a tasty burger. According to MoreThanAlive.com, when used on your skin, charcoal draws toxins out of the pores. You could go to the salon for a pricey charcoal face mask, but if you want to save some money, try doing one at home instead.

Step 1

Wash your face as usual, then pat it dry with a towel.

Step 2

Mix 2 teaspoons of water and 2 teaspoons of activated charcoal into a bowl. Add a few drops of tea tree oil and mix it up well.

Step 3

Spread the mixture onto your face. Avoid getting too close to your eyes and mouth when applying the mask.

Step 4

Leave the mask on your face for 10 minutes. Rinse your face with warm water to remove the mask, then pat the skin dry with a towel.
