Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world.Chocolate has been prepared as a drink for nearly all of its history. The good news is some chocolate can have significant beauty benefits. The not terribly bad news is, the only chocolate that can deliver these benefits is dark chocolate with at least 70 percent cocoa content—which doesn’t apply to most treats found in the candy aisle at the grocery store, so choose wisely.
Chocolate is a favorite desert of many people. Not only it’s very tasty, but chocolate also has many beneficial properties and even can help to improve one’s mood! But not many people know that it’s possible to do face masks with the use of chocolate and that these masks can make a very good job hydrating, lifting, rejuvenating and toning your face. Note that while making these homemade “chocolate masks” it’s preferable to use good quality chocolate with the percentage of cocoa of minimum 70% or more.
To prepare this “wonder mask” take 50 grams of chocolate (with 70-90% content of cocoa) warm it up on the water bath till it becomes liquid. Then mix 1 tablespoon of this liquid chocolate with 1 tablespoon of olive oil (you can use sweet almond oil, linen oil or grape seed oil instead) and 1 egg’s yolk (you can skip egg’s yolk if you don’t like the smell of it. Chocolate with oil will also have wonderful effect.) Mix it all up very well and spread the mask all over your face and neck. Make sure that the temperature of your chocolate mask is comfortable to apply it on your face. Keep it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
