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

Directions:
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.

So, this isn’t the healthiest for you but one or two of these truffles won’t hurt. This would be great to serve for a Valentine’s Day party…if you decide to share. Just don’t be surprised if your guests do this. These are even better the next day!

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.
