Its Consists of three ingredients :

1. Actiavted Charcoal : Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin .Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body,.


2. Vitamin E capsules :  Since vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin, it is easily absorbed into the skin. It fades away scars and dark spots left by acne by promoting tissue repair. Vitamin E can also help keep the oil produced by the skin for longer by preventing their oxidation in air.


3. Rose Water : Rose Water is a a natural toner , hence helps to keep oil at bay from your face .

Now let us dig in how to make this mask :

1. Take a spoon of activated charcoal powder in small bowl .



2. Puncher a Vitamin E capsule and pour the drops in activated charcoal powder and then add a pich of tumeric powder  .







3. Now at last pour in a spoon of Rose water and Mix all the ingredients well using a face mask brush.





4. Apply it on your face and neck and it will be dried in 5-10 mins .After that Rinse it off with lukewarm water .

5. Do not use this mask more than twice a week . But soon you will start seeing results :)
