2: Apply a thin layer of oil on your face (like coconut oil), then using fingers apply the mask evenly, You can use water to wet face first instead of oil if you prefer and if you do not want to use your fingers you can use a cotton ball or cotton round.
3: Let it set for 10 minutes to 30 minutes, some prefer to leave it on over an hour misting mask with water to keep it from drying and cracking.
4: When you are ready wash face with warm water getting as much of the charcoal mask off as you can. Next use a baking soda and warm water paste to wash skin to remove excess charcoal and black color.
