Decided today I would pamper myself with a chocolate facial, scrub and hair mask. mmm... chocolately goodness.
Chocolate Facial - tightens and cleanses pores (and smells so good!)
Milk (2 to 4 Tbsp)
Raw Cacao Powder (2 to 4 Tbsp)
Mix the milk into the cacao powder until it forms a paste. I used 4 Tbsp of each. Brush onto your clean, dry skin. Relax for 15 minutes or until mostly dry. Rinse with warm water, pat dry face and apply moisturizer. Your skin will feel tighter and your pores will be completely cleaned!
Chocolate Scrub - exfoliates and tightens
Raw Sugar (I used coconut sugar)
Raw Cacao Powder
Honey or Oil
Mix all ingredients together. Smooth over skin in circular motions. Rinse with warm water. Pat dry and apply lotion.
Chocolate Hair Mask - This is for dark hair only! It will darken you're hair a teensy bit.
Raw Cacao Powder - 4-6 Tbsp
Natural, Sugar Free Vanilla Yogurt - 4-6 Tbsp
Honey - 1-2 Tbsp
Mix all ingredients together. Section hair into four sections (six if you have thick hair). Smooth into hair from root to tip as evenly as possible. I used a wide tooth comb for help. Let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. The longer you let it sit, the darker your hair will be.
My hair is just at my collar bones, so I used 4 Tbsp of cacao and yogurt plus 1 Tbsp honey. You may need to make more for longer hair. I let mine sit for 20 minutes. I have medium brown hair with a blonde tone (not dyed). It darkened it slightly, but wasn't very noticeable. I love how it made my hair feel and smell though!
Happy Chocolate Day!
