A DIY chocolate Face Mask to try at home 🙂
For an exfoliating, regenerating and delicious chocolaty treat for your skin, all you need is equal amounts of 3 common ingredients from your kitchen:
- a cup/container of your choice
- 1 tsp cocoa powder (I use Trade Aid’s Fair Trade organic) – high in antioxidants and wonderful for skin renewal
- 1 tsp raw honey (I use our own manuka of course) – exfoliating, hydrating, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and regenerating
- 1 tsp yoghurt (one of my favs is this BioFarm organic – plain) – not only rich in nutrients (such as zinc, calcium and b vitamins), but also high in lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid amazing for exfoliating and making your skin feel soft and refreshed
You can of course make larger quantities and store it in the fridge for a few days. Mine doesn’t ever make it to storage because it’s too delicious as an afternoon (or morning snack)!
Mix together and then gently apply to your face – a lovely soft make-up brush would be ideal here. In circular motions I then lightly massage the chocolaty goodness into my skin to make sure that it deals to old skin cells and cleans out my pores. After about 10-15 minutes when it gets tacky to touch I rinse my face with warm water and then lovingly apply Rejuvenating Oil. My skin feels so soft and nourished afterwards!
I’m quite glad my tongue is not too long, because although so tasty it would be pretty gross to lick it all off after exfoliating 😉
It’s so quick and easy – please give it a go and tell me how you find it. Remember as always to be kind to your beautiful face, thank it for everything and smile 🙂
Also, please let me know: what’s the yummiest face mask you’ve ever made?
