DIY, All Natural Chocolate Face Mask

Don’t you love the smell of chocolate? I do and found this scrumptious face mask recipe about seven years ago on Spa Index. Unfortunately, my oily skin couldn’t handle this rich face mask, but I have given the recipe to friends, and they love it. This decadent mask is actually an excellent moisturizer; it leaves your skin baby soft. A natural, DIY mask that is easy to make and use without chemicals. It’s so safe you can actually eat it!

Dark chocolate has immense health benefits and gives you healthy, glowing, and flawless skin.  Dark chocolate contains catechins, polyphenols, and flavanols. These organic compounds make it a powerful antioxidant. Dark chocolates are made from cacao seed extracts that are considered super fruits in terms of the antioxidant capacity. A study shows that dark cocoa chocolates contain more flavanols, polyphenols, and other antioxidants than any other fruits.  It protects your skin from sun damage. The flavonols present in chocolate not only protect your skin from the harmful UV rays but also improve the hydration levels of your skin and boost blood flow.  Dark chocolate helps you fight stress. Stress is one of the main causes of the collagen breakdown and wrinkles. And a study has found that cocoa helps in reducing the levels of stress hormones.
