This Minty Mocha Face Mask is super sweet!
Today’s recipe, a do-it-yourself seasonal facial mask, is the perfect way to practice caring for yourself during the holiday season. This face mask is made with cacao powder (AKA: chocolate), the same ingredient used to make homemade hot chocolate. Cacao is rich in antioxidants. Yogurt is added to help exfoliate the skin. Honey is added to help hydrate the skin. Finally, peppermint essential oil adds a seasonal scent and warm tingle to the mask. <–It’s my favorite part!
es, I know what you’re thinking…
You can eat this mask.
It looks just like chocolate pudding and it does taste amazing. I personally don’t recommend ingesting essential oils , unless you were guided by a therapist and the oils are for internal consume, but everything else is 100% edible.
The next time you’re making homemade hot chocolate to share with your family, why not also make yourself a face mask? Hot chocolate and a chocolate face mask. That sounds like an incredible way to treat yourself for the cold season.
