DIY Chocolate Facial

DIY Chocolate Facial

After writing about the benefits of chocolate for your skin for In Defense Of Chocolate, and unable to shake my chocolate fever (thanks to the upcoming Chocolate Festival) I decided to share a calorie free way of benefiting from the cacao seed’s  antioxidant and flavonoids. Here’s a simple chocolate facial you can try at home. It will leave your skin soft, supple and fresh. As with anything you put on your face, please do a patch test on a small section of your inner wrist and wait 24 hours before slathering your cheeks down in this facial frosting.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2oz heavy whipping cream

Tools

  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cup
  • Whisk
  • Mixing bowl

Directions

Place two tablespoons of cocoa in your mixing bowl.

Whisk until the mixture takes on a frothy, cream-like consistency.

It should look a little like this.

Now you’re ready to apply. Spread a generous layer of cocoa mask all over your face, making sure to avoid your eyes. Leave this mask on for approximately 15 minutes.

It smells great (provided you’re a chocolate fan) and if your tongue happens to wander, it’s completely edible. You can store this mask covered in your refrigerator for approximately one week.
