Chocolate facial

Wednesday, February 22, 2006

Lavish your skin with this indulgent do-it-yourself chocolate facial. It's a luscious treat for your skin and is suitable for all skin types.

The cocoa in chocolate is a source of antioxidants that have a toning effect on your skin; the honey has humectant properties (meaning it helps your skin retain moisture) while the yogurt adds lactic acid, that helps dissolve dead skin cells and refine texture.

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons natural plain yogurt
  • 1 vitamin E capsule
  • Rice flour, sufficient

Combine the first three ingredients to form a sloppy paste.

Snip the end off the vitamin E capsule and squeeze the contents into the mixture; stir well.

Add enough rice flour to form a smooth, firm, workable texture. Smooth over face and neck, avoiding eye area and lips. Lie down for 15 minutes; rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
