We have some good news for all you sweet-toothed beauty lovers! We have a recipe to share for a chocolate facial! However, there is SOME bad news - no, you cannot eat it.
More than just an incredibly yummy and utterly satisfying snack, dark chocolate is actually good for your skin, too! Full of antioxidants and fats such as shea butter and cocoa butter (which carry intense moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties), this sweet-packed treat truly does the body (and skin) good in more ways than one!
Because of all the benefits of dark chocolate, spas have been offering facials incorporating this heavenly ingredient. To get in on all this chocolaty goodness at home, follow these simple steps below to create your own mouth-watering mask!
What you’ll need:
- 1/3 cup dark cocoa
- 1/4 honey
- 3 tablespoons heavy cram
- 2 tablespoons powdered oatmeal
- Mix all ingredients together in bowl.
- Apply mixture onto skin and leave on for 15 minutes.
