Do you guys remember how as a child, most of used to apply glue on our hands, wait for it to dry and then peel it off in an oddly satisfying way?
Ah, those were the days!
Well, now the things have changed. It is the era of using peel off face masks now! 😜
DIY peel off face masks are “a thing” these days.
I see them all the time on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. They are just everywhere on the internet, Aren’t they
So I decided to compile a list of all the DIY Peel off masks I have come across so far and share it with you all. Keep on reading to know about them!
Best DIY Peel Off Face Masks For Smooth & Clear Skin!
1. DIY Charcoal And Glue Peel Off Face Mask
This is currently the most famous peel off face mask on the internet. The chances are that you have already seen the painful looking videos of people peeling off this mask.
It’s basically a mask for blackhead removal, but a lot of great people on the internet (sarcasm intended 😛) are using it on their whole face. I will recommend you to only apply it on the areas where you have blackheads or clogged pores. Here are the ingredients required to make it –
- 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.
Take 2 tablespoons of glue in a bowl and add the contents of 2 activated charcoal capsules (or 2 teaspoons of charcoal powder) in it. Mix both of the ingredients well with a spoon and apply it using a brush.
Leave it on until it’s completely dry and then slowly peel it off. P.S. – Don’t try it if you have sensitive skin. I repeat – Don’t try it! Watch a YouTube tutorial to get detailed information and demo about this mask.
2. DIY Egg White Peel Off Mask
The egg white mask is the easiest one to make. You can apply a thick layer of the white part of an egg directly to your face after whisking it for a while. It will peel off all the dirt from your face, BUT, if you want to make it more effective – then you can try the Egg white + tissue peel off mask.
You will need –
- Paper towel / tissue paper.
- Egg white.
Apply a layer of egg white and put a layer of tissue paper or 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 motion. It may hurt a lot, but beauty is pain so… 😝
3. DIY Gelatin And Milk Peel Off Mask
Gelatin has amazing benefits for skin and hair. It’s mainly used in desserts and other food items. To make a peel off mask out of it, you will require –
- 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. 😝
Make sure that you are taking milk that’s a little warm so that the gelatin can get mixed with it easily. Put both the ingredients in a bowl and warm up the mixture using double boiler process, or microwave it for a few seconds.
Use it on your face quickly (unless it’s too hot to apply) because gelatin can become rubbery. This mask will extract the impurities from your facial pores and also get rid of your facial hairs.
4. DIY Orange Peel Off Mask
The recipe of orange peel off mask is an add-on to the gelatin powder and milk mask I 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.
5. DIY Agar-Agar Peel Off Mask
One thing I would like to point out is that Gelatin is not a vegan / vegetarian product because it is derived from the body parts of animals. So if you are a vegan / vegetarian 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’s 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’s not 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 Farah Dhukai. This one 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 for this)
- 1 teaspoon of agar-agar powder.
- Half cup of water.
The process is pretty much same as the previous recipe, but for this mask you have to add green tea to the boiling water first and agar agar powder the second.
7. DIY Honey Peel Off Mask
Honey is a really nice ingredient for people with dry and acne prone skin. It has antibacterial properties which heals acne and reduces skin irritation. You can make 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 mixture that you just applied. The mixture of honey and milk won’t peel off by itself.
That’s why you need to use tissue paper to turn it into a peel off mask! One tip: try to use raw, pure honey for this mask!
