Velvety chocolate face mask

I thought I could add a little bit of that holiday glow to my face so I made something very… edible… It smells lovely and if I had some cherries or strawberries, I would dip them right into the face mask!

Cocoa powder mixed with double cream and honey is very moisturising and will give your skin a healthy glow. Cocoa powder contains fatty acids that are extremely beneficial to our skin, those acids are responsible for leaving our skin soft and nourished. It is also a great antioxidant and fights free radicals. So I could happily say that a chocolate face mask keeps our skin younger! Cocoa powder is also rich in essential minerals, zinc being one of them. Zinc is great for our sin, keeps it spot free.

delicious

2 tsp cocoa powder

1-2 tsp honey

1-2 tsp double cream

I used the ‘Green & Black’s’ organic cocoa made with the finest organic fair trade cocoa beans, but you don’t have to (I just love their chocolates). Any kind of cocoa will do a good job!Add the honey and mix it well. Fold in the double cream, mix gently until you form a lovely chocolatey paste. Apply the mask to your clean face and indulge for 15-20 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water.

You can add some dried/fresh ground rose petals or oatmeal for exfoliating properties.

Did you try mixing with oats or maybe salt to make a lovely exfoliator? Let me know if you liked it in the comments below!
