Chocolate Espresso MaskPosted by: Elle Davis on February 28th, 2013
Chocolate and coffee and milk, oh my! The chocolate in this mask helps soothe your skin, plus it’s really great aromatherapy. The coffee and milk are natural exfoliants and help remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin very happy. Caffeine is a diuretic that helps to tighten the skin.
You could always double or triple the recipe and use it on trouble spots to reduce cellulite. Yes, you can literally slather your body in coffee and chocolate. Woo hoo! Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
1 tablespoon extra fine ground coffee
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
4 teaspoons whole milk
Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl with a fork until it turns into a thick paste. Apply to your face or other trouble areas and leave on your skin for 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and apply moisturizer.
If using the recipe as is, it’s enough for one face mask. Make sure to treat yourself to some chocolate while waiting for the mask to do its job.
*Skin care tip: When washing your face, wash it 2x. The first cleanse removes the surface dirt and oil. The second cleanse is more deep cleaning. Remember to use toner, which preps the skin and helps to remove any residue, before you moisturize.
