I love a good, natural DIY beauty method. Especially for a girls night in. Who doesn’t want more glowing skin? This recipe for a chocolate face mask from over on the Wellness Mama has chocolate and bananas. Two of my fav things to combine and eat. This chocolate face mask intrigues me and I think I’ll try it next time I have some bananas go too brown on me.
Chocolate Face Mask for Glowing Skin
This mask includes several ingredients that are all excellent for the skin. The caffeine in cacao increases circulation to the skin to reduce redness and tone skin for a firmer appearance. Theobromine is another antioxidant found in cacao less stimulating than caffeine but still known to increase blood flow to the skin. Theobromine has also been studied for its ability to protect against sun damage and even cancer.
This recipe makes enough for two face masks.
- 2 TBSP raw cacao powder
- 1 TBSP yogurt
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1 quarter of a banana
- Mash the banana with a fork, then add the rest of the ingredients.
- Generously apply the chocolate mixture to the face and neck.
- After 10-20 minutes, wash the face mask off.
