Who says that chocolate is not good for your skin?  Not only is chocolate a delicious treat, but it can be made into a homemade face mask that will moisturize your skin.  Cocoa beans contain antioxidants that strengthen the skin, while the shea and cocoa butters found in the delicious confection relieve dryness. Here is how to prepare your own scrumptious chocolate face mask!


  • 1/3 cup of dark cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 3 Tablespoons of heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons of powdered oatmeal

Mix all of the ingredients together until you get a paste.  Apply to your face and let the mask soak in for 15 minutes.  Rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry.  You should notice a softness to your skin.

The facial is not only good for your skin but a tasty one to boot.  Cheers to a little winter treat for you and your skin.
