Kitchen Beauty Bar: DIY Chocolate Face Mask

23 Jul

This is a quick and easy DIY face mask that will work some wonders for your skin. It exfoliates, shrinks pores, softens, and moisturizes. Additionally, thanks to the antibacterial properties of honey, it helps prevent acne. And if that all wasn’t enough, the mask smells absolutely delicious, meaning that you too will smell like a freshly baked chocolate cake, attracting dozens of suitors. Nothing is sexier than beautiful skin that smells like dessert.

Chocolate Moisturizing Face Mask

Ingredients:

1/4 cup honey

1/3 cup cocoa powder

3 tablespoons oats

2 tablespoons milk

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until it is one smooth consistency with the only lumps being from the oats. Gently rub the mask on your face in a circular motion until everything is covered. Let sit for 15-20 minutes. As the honey begins to dry you will feel the mask and your skin begin to tighten. Gently rinse with lukewarm water, NOT HOT WATER. Hot water will only serve to dry out your skin, defeating the purpose of the mask. 

Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for up to a week. Add two additional tablespoons of milk when you’re ready to reuse.
