Chocolate is a favorite desert of many people. Not only it’s very tasty, but chocolate also has many beneficial properties and even can help to improve one’s mood! But not many people know that it’s possible to do face masks with the use of chocolate and that these masks can make a very good job hydrating, lifting, rejuvenating and toning your face. Note that while making these homemade “chocolate masks” it’s preferable to use good quality chocolate with the percentage of cocoa of minimum 70% or more.
1) Hydrating chocolate homemade face mask.
To prepare this “wonder mask” take 50 grams of chocolate (with 70-90% content of cocoa) warm it up on the water bath till it becomes liquid. Then mix 1 tablespoon of this liquid chocolate with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (you can use sweet almond oil, linen oil or grape seed oil instead) and 1 egg’s yolk (you can skip egg’s yolk if you don’t like the smell of it. Chocolate with oil will also have wonderful effect.) Mix it all up very well and spread the mask all over your face and neck. Make sure that the temperature of your chocolate mask is comfortable to apply it on your face. Keep it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
2) Toning chocolate homemade face mask.
This mask can tone your skin very well, hydrate it and even improve it’s elasticity. To prepare it you need to warm up 50 grams of “good” chocolate (with 70-90% content of cocoa) on the water bath. To prepare other ingredients you will need to throw them into your blender. Mix apple, banana, strawberries and water melon in your blender and put 2-3 tablespoons of this mix into the bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of your melted chocolate. If a big part of your tasty smoothy stayed in your blender – you can happily drink it, knowing that you care for your skin both from inside and out! Now, apply the mask on your face and neck and wait for about 20 minutes before rinsing the mask with lukewarm water.
3) Rejuvenating, hydrating and soothing homemade face mask with the use of chocolate.
Mix 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate with 1 tablespoon of thick add-ons free cream and add 1 tablespoon of liquid honey. Apply this mask on your face and neck for about 15 minutes and then, rinse it with lukewarm water. If you still have some “stickiness” on your face, wipe your skin with your favorite toner.
4) Regenerating homemade face mask with the use of chocolate.
Mix 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate with 1 teaspoon of almond oil and 1 teaspoon of rose hip oil. Make sure that your mask is lukewarm and comfortable to touch. Add 1 drop of essential oil of the rose, mix all the ingredients very well and apply the mask on your face for 20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. The oils will help to regenerate your skin cells and chocolate will help tone and hydrate the skin.
