Dark chocolate facial masks have been used since the days of Cleopatra. This chocolate-based beauty treatment has been lauded by chocolate gourmets and chocoholics alike who welcome the quick cocoa fix designed to satisfy the senses. Chocolate facials contain raw cocoa powder and other beneficial ingredients which can potentially benefit your skin.

 

Not only are you improving the appearance of our skin, but by using true cocoa with added essential oils you receive aromatic and therapeutic rewards. The use of cocoa in facial treatments may trigger the brain’s pleasure centers.

 

Cocoa beans contain caffeine and two other substances, tyramine and tryptophan, that are converted into the feel-good chemicals dopamine and serotonin, which play a large role in the pleasure and reward mechanisms of our brain. Cocoa is also shown to stimulate endorphin production, which imparts a sense of pleasure.

 

Cocoa beans are also high in antioxidant phenolic phytochemicals (polyphenols), including flavonoids, procyanidin, and resveratrol. In fact, they are present at such high concentrations that cocoa actually has higher antioxidant potential than other heavy weight antioxidants such as green tea or red wine.

 

Chocolate also contains fats such as cocoa butter or shea butter. Both of these are used routinely as topical moisturizers and as anti-inflammatory agents. Shea butter can also be used as a skin softener.

 

What better way to indulge your chocolate craving without adding calories and still feel sinfully fulfilled than to learn how to make your own chocolate facial mask to pamper your skin and the following are 5 ways to achieve it.

 

Rejuvenating Chocolate Facial Recipe#1

 

For making good quality chocolate mask at home, you need high quality chocolate bars, milk, salt and brown sugar. Start by heating the chocolate bars but try not to burn it or put it on high temperature. Always melt it slowly and gradually increase the heat.

 

In a separate bowl, mix milk, salt and sugar thoroughly until it mixes well. Take off the melted chocolate from stove and mix it with the milk. Let it cool down for a while but never put it in refrigerator to decrease the temperature quickly as it affects the internal properties of the chocolate. Always cool down the mixture at room temperature.

 

Rejuvenating Chocolate Facial Recipe #2

 

For this recipe, you need 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (or you can use half ounce of chocolate bar), 2 tablespoons of fresh grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon of almond flour (if you are allergic to nuts, use oatmeal) and 5-6 drops of ylang ylang essential oil (optional).

 

If you are using chocolate bar, you have to melt it first. Mix the melted chocolate or cocoa powder with almond flour and grapefruit juice and lastly the essential oil if you are using it. Use lesser amount of grapefruit juice if you are using the melted chocolate. You can apply this mixture on your face and rinse off after 20 minutes.

 

Rejuvenating Chocolate Facial Recipe #3

 

For this recipe, you need one-third cup of dark cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons of heavy cream or plain non-flavored yogurt, one-quarter cup of organic raw honey (or manuka honey) and 2 tablespoons of pureed or powdered oatmeal.

 

You mix all the ingredients together and apply this mixture on your face. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse off with warm water using a gentle circular method to exfoliate.

 

Oatmeal is added to exfoliate the skin. Honey is a great anti-bacterial agent, deeply cleanses your skin and opens up clogged pores. Milk cream is an intense moisturizer. Yogurt contains lactic acid that helps dissolve dead skin cells improving your overall skin texture. The rich zinc content will help to clear your skin of zits and acne.

 

Rejuvenating Chocolate Facial Recipe #4

 

For this recipe, you will need one-quarter cup cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons Rhassoul clay, 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 1 teaspoon coconut oil and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice. Blend all the ingredients, then apply the mixture on your face and enjoy for 10-20 minutes before rinsing.

 

Rhassoul clay is a mineral rich, spa quality clay that has toning and enriching benefits. Added to a chocolate facial mask, it can intensify the purifying effects.

 

Rejuvenating Chocolate Facial Recipe #5

 

For this recipe, you will need 2 tablespoons of unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of red wine and 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey (or manuka honey).

You get a bowl to add in all the ingredients and mix well. With the help of makeup brush apply the paste evenly on your face. Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly. This mask could be messy, so rinsing is necessary before taking a shower. Now wipe toner on your clean face with the help of a cotton pad and later apply moisturizer to your face.
