If you have no Father’s Day plans, how about treating yourself to a chocolate face mask?
Elizabeth Garcia of Elizabeth’s Secret Beauty Bar in Miami shares the recipe for her signature chocolate mask. You can use it on the face to rehydrate, and on your body or feet as well.
Spas that promote chocolate say it is a natural way to exfoliate, and promote the “rich antioxidants that help to combat free radicals, which are responsible for our cell aging.”
Forget about that: A surface mask isn’t going to penetrate and protect you from aging.
Instead, enjoy a chocolate mask because it’s fun and puts you in a good mood, from the scent alone. Chocolate-loving men will enjoy it as much as the ladies.
Here’s how to mix your own:
RECIPE: CHOCOLATE MASK
1. PLACE coconut oil and honey in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave with honey for 6 seconds.
2. BLEND cocoa powder into coconut oil/honey and stir until mixture becomes creamy.
3. APPLY to your skin using a facial brush; leave on until it hardens. Elizabeth does not recommend using your fingers. We used a wood tongue depressor. We also recommend soothing music. Chopin worked for us!
4. REMOVE with cool wash cloth in an upward motion.
