Chocolate was not simply referred to as the food of the gods by the Aztecs. Studies show that chocolate has many properties that not only do miracles to your body from the inside, but from the outside as well.

As you know, chocolate is made from cocoa beans. Cocoa beans have antioxidant properties and healthy fats such as shea and cocoa butter. So, when chocolate is used on the skin, it not only detoxifies and cleanses your skin from pollution, it also moisturizes your skin and keeps it feeling supple after the mask is washed off.

You can make different variations of chocolate face masks, depending on your skin type. This is my version for combination to dry skin. You will need:

1 tbsp of dark cocoa powder

1 tsp of honey (moisturizes)

1 tsp turmeric powder (acts as a natural antiseptic and helps add a glow to your skin)

1 tbsp of yoghurt

Mix these ingredients in a small bowl and apply the mixture with your fingertips or with a brush onto your skin. Leave this mask on till it dries (about 15 to 20 minutes). Then, rinse off the mask and pat your face dry.

Clearer looking and softer skin makes this pack a favorite at home.

If you do give this mask a try, please let me know what you think of it. Or, if you have a mask that works wonders for dry to combination skin, please share it with me.
