7 Best DIY Peel Off Face Masks For Smooth & Clear Skin
1. DIY Charcoal And Glue Peel Off Face Mask
This has been the most viral peel off face mask on the internet. There is a fair chance that you might have already seen the painful looking videos of people peeling off this mask from their face and making hysterical expressions!
This charcoal and glue peel off face mask recipe is actually for blackhead removal, but a lot of intellectuals on the internet (sarcasm intended) are using it on their whole face, including the sensitive area around the eyes. We will recommend applying this DIY peel off face mask only on those areas of your face where you have blackheads or clogged pores, such as your nose, forehead, and chin.
These are the ingredients you would require for Charcoal & Glue Peel Off Face Mask –
Ingredients for DIY Charcoal & Glue Peel Off Face Mask :-
- Activated charcoal powder/capsules (Can be found in medical stores or on Amazon).
- Non-toxic glue (you can get non-toxic glue in India from fevicol. Elmer’s school glue is also available in India through Amazon).
- A bowl and a spoon for mixing.
- A brush to apply the mixture.
How To Make :-
- Take 2 tablespoons of glue in a bowl and add the contents of 2 activated charcoal capsules (or 2 teaspoons of activated charcoal powder) in it.
- Mix both of the ingredients well with a spoon and apply it to your skin using a brush.
- Leave it on until it is completely dry and then slowly peel it off in upwards direction.
Benefits of DIY Charcoal & Glue Peel Off Face Mask :-
Charcoal comes with natural abilities to draw out the dirt, oil, and toxins from the facial pores, leaving your skin fresh and clean. Activated charcoal is more porous than normal charcoal and hence, it is more effective for detoxifying your skin. This face mask would be the perfect skin pampering DIY for you if you have blackheads, clogged pores, and fine hair on your face.
P.S. – Don’t try this DIY if you have sensitive skin. We repeat – Don’t try it! And as one of my readers has pointed out in the comments section below, the parts of glue used in this recipe can get stuck to your facial pores, so use this DIY carefully.
To ensure that all the traces of this DIY face mask are removed from your skin, wash your face properly after peeling it off.
2. DIY Egg White Peel Off Mask
This egg white mask is the easiest one to make. You can apply a thick layer of the white part of a raw egg on your face after whisking it for a while. It will get rid of all the dirt present deep within your facial pores, BUT, if you want to make it more effective – then you can try the Egg white and tissue peel off mask.
Ingredients for DIY Egg White Peel Off Face Mask :-
- Paper towel / tissue paper.
- Egg white.
How To Use :-
- Apply a thin layer of egg white using a brush and put a layer of tissue paper/paper towel on top.
- Repeat this process twice and let the mask dry for a few minutes.
- Once it’s dry, peel it off in small sections in an upward direction.
- To remove the smell of egg white from your skin, take warm water in a bowl and a few drops of your favourite skin-friendly essential oil in it. Dip a wash cloth in the water and use it to gently clean your skin.

3. DIY Gelatin And Milk Peel Off Mask
The use of gelatin is not confined to making mouthwatering jell-os and desserts only, this ingredient can do a lot for enhancing your beauty too!
Ingredients for DIY Gelatin & Milk Peel Off Face Mask :-
- 1 tablespoon of gelatin powder. (You can find it in grocery stores or you can buy it online from Amazon)
- 2 tablespoons of milk.
- Knowledge about Double boiler. (Trust us, it’s easy!)
Make sure that you are taking milk that is lukewarm so that the gelatin can mix well with it easily. Put both the ingredients in a bowl and warm up the mixture using a double boiler process. You can also microwave it for a few seconds.
Apply it on your face quickly (unless it is too hot to apply on your skin) because gelatin can become rubbery. This mask will extract the impurities from your facial pores and also get rid of your facial hair.
4. DIY Orange Peel-Off Mask
The recipe for the orange peel-off mask is an add-on to the gelatin powder and milk mask we just shared above. Just put 2 teaspoons of orange juice in the mixture of gelatin powder and milk to obtain the numerous skin benefits that orange holds. This juicy, Vitamin C-rich fruit can do wonders for your skin. It is a must-try DIY peel-off mask for dull skin!
5. DIY Agar-Agar Peel Off Mask
One thing we would like to point out is that Gelatin is not a vegan/vegetarian product because it is derived from animal fat. So if you follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle then you can try this agar agar peel-off mask instead.
You will need –
- 1 teaspoon of agar-agar powder.
- Activated charcoal capsules.
- Half cup of water.
This face mask recipe was shared by Farah Dhukai. She mentions that this peel off mask is great for detoxifying the skin and also for shrinking large pores.
Moreover that, it is really easy to make. You need to bring the water to a boil and then add the agar-agar powder in it. Put activated charcoal powder when it is not so boiling-hot. Mix it well and apply it to your face. This mask peels off in one go, which is very satisfying to watch!
6. DIY Green Tea Peel Off Mask
Another cool DIY shared by the gorgeous skin blogger Farah Dhukai!
This face mask is for adding a glow and moisture to your skin.
You will need –
- 1 teaspoon of green tea. (She mentioned that matcha tea is the best pick for this)
- 1 teaspoon of agar-agar powder.
- Half a cup of water.
The process is pretty much the same as the previous recipe, but for this mask you have to add green tea to the boiling water first and agar agar powder later.
7. DIY Honey Peel-Off Mask
Honey is a wonderful ingredient for people with dry and acne-prone skin types. It has antibacterial properties that heal acne and reduces skin irritation. You can make a honey peel-off mask by mixing lukewarm milk with it.
Apply an even layer of the mixture on your face and while the mask is still wet, take a single ply of tissue paper and put it over the layer of face mask mixture that you just applied. The mixture of honey and milk will not peel off by itself.
That is why you need to use tissue paper to turn it in to a peel off mask! One tip: try to use raw and pure honey for this DIY mask!
