Well Dip Me In Chocolate And Call Me Dessert

Oh- I was ever so pleased to come across this one....a chocolate masque that is great for your skin !?!?! 



1 T Cocoa Powder  (organic and raw is best for ensuring best concentration of nutrients)
Heavy Cream or Yogurt (enough to form a paste)
1 T Honey

Combine the ingredients and apply to clean dry skin.   Leave on for 15-30 minutes.   Rinse well with warm water.  Pat your skin dry with a fluffy towel.

What these ingredients do for your skin:
  • Chocolate contains copper which is great for firming skin, it is also an antioxidant and can reduce the signs of aging.
  • Heavy Cream softens;Yogurt is antibacterial and antimicrobial it deep cleans
  • Honey is a humectant (helps yours skin retain moisture)

The best thing about this masque is when you lick your lips (accidentally)....yummy!

OMG I stopped by b/c I'm in a bit of transition with my blog and I've always found you inspiring and a bit of a kindred spirit. But this dip me in chocolate is exactly what I've been looking for without me looking! I can't wait to give it a try! Does it matter if it's dutch process cocoa? Seriously you rock!

Thank you for the comment- It doesn't have to be dutch process, in fact I have been reading more on this and it may be more healthful to choose a natural, unprocessed one. As I learn this stuff, I try to update it. I think the Dutch Process may also not be as strong? If you give it a go, let me know what you think!

Take Good Care!
