This cocoa recipe has many variations. It might as well be called cocoa powder facial mask recipe as you really need cocoa, not chocolate to prepare it. But you must agree, for the sake of skin care, chocolate mask sounds so much more appealing.

Chocolate face mask recipe

Ingredients


  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of heavy cream (sour cream will work as well)
  • 3 teaspoons of oatmeal powder

Preparation

Mix all the ingredient until the mass in consistent. Apply on the face, gently massaging it so that oatmeal can start exfoliating the dead skin cell layer. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and rinse off with luke warm water.

In case you are wondering, there is a reason oatmeal and honey are added to this mix. Similar to its use in body scrub recipes, oatmeal it is recommended for sensitive skin, but can be used in preparation of facial masks for any skin type, as well as for preparation of facial exfoliants as it is gentle on the skin, yet highly powerful.

Honey on the other hand, is a great anti-bacterial agent, deeply cleanses your skin, and opens up clogged pores.

Now that you know all these benefits of chocolate, not only can you be guilt free while eating it, you can prepare an excellent chocolate face mask recipe and aid to your skins youthful look and nourishment.

Most of the recipes I have on my website actually come from my mom
Some are from my friends and some are just general public kind of recipes, those that can be found in different forms on the net/in books.
I do like to try them before I post them. I don't try those that are not for my skin type, but that is when friends and family come in

I think this recipe is great for some other fun stuff hee hee.

Chocolate is very beneficial in many ways-especially when PMS needs to be soothed

Hi everyone, I tried the chocolate mask with my friends, we held a spa day and although it was sticky, my skin felt nourished. Thank you for sharing that recipe. I first steamed our faces by boiling water and we took it off the stove. Then we put a towel draped it over our head and the pot (not all at the same time) to get the "steam room effect". Then we put the chocolate mask on and added cucumbers for the eyes. Then after washing it off it felt nice. Sometimes I like to use tea bags like green tea, soaking it and rubbing it on my face, i heard it has a lot of health benefits.
