Aloe vera, rich in antioxidants and minerals, helps soothe and heal, while optional tea tree oil adds anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, targeting acne-prone skin.
Combine activated charcoal powder, aloe vera gel, and tea tree oil (if using) in a bowl. Mix until a uniform consistency is achieved. Apply the mask evenly on your face, avoiding the eye area, and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
