Our chocolate facial mask recipe not only helps hydrate your skin, but it also nourishes it to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth –just like a baby’s bottom! Here are some other benefits of adding a chocolate facial mask to your beauty routine:

  • Chocolate contains sulfur, which helps detoxify your skin
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Contains powerful antioxidants
  • Acts as a moisturizer
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • It’s dessert on your face!

Are you convinced? Great—let’s get chocolate-wasted!
