Bionic Homemade: Hot Chocolate Face Mask

by JoyceyCouture on January 25, 2011 · 6 comments

Welcome to another installment of Bionic Beauty Homemade with Joycey Couture!

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s day- if there is only one thing in the world that is a certainty in life it’s that we all have chocolate in the house this time of year.

Once regarded as bad for our health, research has proven that dark chocolate is healthy- and not just to eat. The compounds found in chocolate can actually benefit the skin.

Time to melt down that left over Christmas candy! ;)

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp cream, plain yogurt, or sour cream
  • 3 tsp oats
DIY homemade hot chocolate face mask

Sooth your skin throughout the candy season with this scrumptious chocolate face mask!

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Apply the mixture to your clean, dry skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Enjoy!

Stay Bionic,
Joycey Couture - contributing author of the Bionic Beauty blog

Thank goodness that you’re back!!!!!! :-D Hope you’re both well. That said, I don’t know if I could manage not to consume the ingredients before they had a chance to work any magic on my skin. LOL But truly, thanks anyway for the idea.

Although that sounds like something tasty, the idea of using unrefined food products on my face worries me. I prefer using store bought due to hygiene concerns rather than homemade face masks. I use Face Masque Bar face masks weekly. I get them from their site at http://facemasquebar.com/

I also use Clean and Clear’s sensitive formula which is available virtually anywhere. I buy it at CVS, Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond. Neutrogena also makes a pretty good facial soap.

I hope this helps someone :)
