By applying this mask, you will be using chocolate and heavy cream for a 15 minute face lift, since it is filled with antioxidants that rejuvenate the skin.
This face mask recipe is an excellent moisturizer that leaves your skin soft and glowing.

Known about since the times of the Mayas and the Aztecs, chocolate has a special place in our nutrition. It is filled with tryptophan, an essential amino acid that is a precursor of serotonin, neurotransmitter that is thought to regulate mood.
This Mask is lately very popular in beauty salons. It is one of the most gentle and relaxing massages available.
Not only is it beneficial to the skin, it helps stabilize your mood by initiating serotonin release. It is very rejuvenating and helps you feel more at peace, happy, and relaxed.
Cocoa powder, which is what chocolate is made of, is a wonderful and powerful antioxidant. It protects and frees the skin from free radicals.
So, here we go!

Ingredients

1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup of honey
2 tablespoons of heavy cream (sour cream or yogurth will work as well)
3 teaspoons of oatmeal powder

Preparation

Mix all the ingredients until the mass is consistent. Apply on your face, gently massaging it, so that the oatmeal can start exfoliating the dead skin cell layers. Leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water.
