DIY Chocolate Facial

chocolate facialYes you read it right. Chocolate Facial. Yum! Chocolate facials have been proven to hydrate skin, reverse sun damage and quite simply just flat out tone and firm skin. But a chocolate facial isn’t cheap, especially when you go to a spa.

Chocolate releases hormones in the brain, putting you in a good mood. Even the smell alone is capable of making us happy. It is also a known to be a natural way to exfoliate, containing essential vitamins. It is chock full of antioxidants that help fight free radicals, which are partly responsible for the aging process.

You can use this chocolate facial not only on your face but also on hands, feet, back and all over. It can be a bit messy though. Making your own chocolate facial is simple, fast and easy! Here is how:

What You Need:

2 tablespoons of organic raw cocoa powder

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

How to Make it:

In a bowl soften coconut oil – in it’s natural state it is not liquid. You could do this by placing a bowl into another bowl with hot water. Alternatively microwave the coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl for about 5-6 seconds. Add and mix in cocoa powder. Stir until creamy. And it is ready to use.

Take a facial brush and apply to your face (or ask someone else to apply it for you). Leave it on for about 15 -20 minutes. Remove with warm wet washcloth.

Enjoy the great benefits of chocolate!
