Chocolate face mask recipe

A Chocolate mask nourishes and moisturizes your skin which leaves your skin soft and glowing. Chocolate is filled with antioxidants that rejuvenate the skin.

use 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/4 cup of honey, 3 teaspoons of oatmeal powder, and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream or sour cream. Mix all of them until the mass in consistent. Gently massage your face with it so that oatmeal can start exfoliating the dead skin cell layer. Leave it on the face for about 15 - 20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.
 
Note: While eating chocolate you must remember that the only chocolate that can deliver beauty benefits is dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa content.

Dark chocolate combats stress (beauty's enemy number one) helping reduce stress hormones, which lowers collagen breakdown in the skin, and thus protects your skin from wrinkles.

Quality chocolate contains flavonols (type of flavonoid), that help your skin look its best. These antioxidants help your skin with UV damage protection that you may have fewer wrinkles, fight free radicals, and increase blood flow for a dewy glow! Flavonols improve skin hydration and thickness, which makes a young-looking skin.

Warm Chocolate Regards
