If you have ever been here before you probably know how much I love using DIY scrubs and masks. I love finding what works and sharing it with all of you! Recently I whipped up this classic DIY charcoal sugar scrub. It works as both a mask and a scrub which means you get great exfoliation, the detoxifying and unclogging power of charcoal, and a nice soothing mask that keeps skin hydrated and soft.
You know I love charcoal! It works wonders for my skin and works hard to lift all the junk that gets buried in my pores. This DIY Blackhead Removing Mask is proof of how well it works. Another great scrub for when you don’t have time to make your own is the Tarte Frxxxtion Stick, you can check it out and read my review by clicking above.

With just three simple ingredients you can make this DIY charcoal sugar scrub mask at home!
One of the reasons I really enjoy this DIY charcoal sugar scrub is because I can make a batch of it and keep it on hand. Believe it or not I don’t always have time to make a scrub or mask from scratch when I have a few minutes to apply. If I know I’m in a hurry I just grab a premixed mask or scrub and do my thing! This recipe will make enough scrub for quite a few applications. You can store it in a plastic container, a mason jar, or even just a zipper bag. Something that is semi air tight will work best. I like to use mason jars or their plastic equivalent because I keep my DIY charcoal sugar scrub mask in the shower.
If I keep it in the shower I’m more likely to use it on a regular basis. During the Winter months I especially enjoy this recipe because it allows me to remove dead skin from my elbows and knees. Fighting dry skin is always an uphill battle for me.
DIY Charcoal Sugar Scrub
I’m not exaggerating even a little bit when I say that this is one of the simplest sugar scrub recipes around…It will take you no time at all to whip up! Basically these simple ingredients offer amazing benefits. The EVOO or the Coconut Oil will keep skin soft and moisturized without clogging pores. The sugar in this recipe acts as a natural exfoliate which will help remove dead skin, reveal brighter healthier looking skin, and unclog pores. Lastly, the charcoal removes toxins, helps brighten skin, and absorbs all the grime and slime that gets buried deep in your skins pores!
