DIY: Chocolate Face Mask
Written by: Allison Swan
If you love chocolate, you're going to love this DIY chocolate mask! It not only tastes and smells delicious, but it’s also a treat for your skin that will boost your complexion. Here's how to make your own:
1. Melt chocolate over a double boiler. The great thing about chocolate is that it's loaded with antioxidants, which is great for skin. Use dark, milk, or baker’s chocolate.
2. Sprinkle salt into the chocolate. Salt is naturally exfoliating and fights bacteria, which means it's great for acne-prone skin.
3. Add a dash of oil to moisturize the skin. Try olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil--almond oil is said to provide relief for dry skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
4. Let the chocolate mask cool to room temperature before applying. Test the mask on a small area on your hand first so you don’t burn your face. Spread all over your face with your hands or the spatula.
Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water to reveal glowing skin!
