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.
