Dark Chocolate & Red Wine Face Mask

If you need a reason to open up a bottle of wine, here it is. If I could figure out how to make this edible, I would. The smell is pure bliss. Dark chocolate and red wine are loaded with lots of goodies that help your skin. Red wine acts as a mild astringent, dark chocolate can improve the skin’s hydration, and honey is moisturizing and helps tighten the skin.

This recipe makes enough for one facial mask. Leave on the face for about 15 minutes and make sure to pour a glass of wine so you have it while you’re taking a much deserved break. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 Tbs. unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
2 Tbs. red wine
1 tsp. honey

Directions:
Add all of the ingredients in a glass or small bowl. Mix well. Apply evenly to your face with a medium size make up brush. Leave on your skin for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. The mask can be messy so I would suggest using it before taking a shower. Wipe toner on a clean face with a cotton pad. Apply moisturizer to face.
