Yield: 1 mask


  • glass bowl
  • fan applicator brush (optional)


  • 1 TBSP Activated Charcoal
  • 1 TBSP Calcium Bentonite Clay
  • 1 TSP Honey
  • 1 half Squeezed Lemon


  • Wash and dry your skin with a gentle cleanser. Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl (don't use metal for this). Apply a thin layer in upward sweeps with fan applicator brush making sure to keep away from your eyes and mouth. Let the mask setup and dry for about 10 minutes. When the mask is dry (you'll know) wash your face with water using circular motions to add some extra exfoliation. Once clean pat dry and apply a moisturizing oil like jojoba oil.


Because of the lemon juice this mask will leave your skin a little pink and sensitive to the sun for the day. Make sure to apply sunscreen before leaving the house. It's best to do at night before bed. You can omit the lemon if it is too rough on your skin.
