DIY Homemade Chocolate Facial | I’m Lovin’ It

 

If you thought eating a bar of chocolate can satisfy your mood swings, then wait until you see what it can do to your skin with an easy 2-ingredient Chocolate Facial Recipe you can make at home.

Indulgent 2 Ingredient Homemade Chocolate Facial recipe at TidyMom.net

Last year when I visited Stowe Mountain Lodge in Vermont I heard that they give chocolate facials in their spa.  I don’t know about you, but the words chocolate facial sure piqued my interest!  The hotel told me they make the chocolate face mask right in the spa with 2 simple ingredients…. Coconut Oil and Dark Cocoa Powder.  I knew when I got home I need to make my own Homemade Chocolate Facial.

The Health Benefits

Dark Cocoa Powder – high level of antioxidants that promote cell repair, helps firm & prevent wrinkles, high vitamin & mineral content, increased hydration, decreased skin roughness, increased defense of UV damage.  Pretty awesome huh?!

Coconut oil is a must-have in almost any natural beauty recipe,  it has so many benefits for your skin. It boasts antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Coconut oil also penetrates deep into your skin, providing long-lasting moisture that doesn’t feel greasy or cause breakouts.  Perfect for maintaining clear skin, and added bonus…… it smells really good too!!

*Not all Coconut Oil is created equal.

Scientific research has revealed that Coconut Oil has health benefits that affect your entire body, inside and out.   I would suggest reading How to Choose A Coconut Oil from EvolvingWellness.com and another good article on choosing Coconut Oil at Food Renegade.  You’ll be amazed at how many great coconut oil recipes and uses there are!!

This is one way to indulge in chocolate without gaining a pound!  You might look silly for 20 minutes but just think of the silky smooth skin you will gain!!

I made enough for just one chocolate facial.  But you could easily increase the recipe and keep it in an air-tight jar.   If you use quality oil, you can be expect it to stay fresh at room temp for 3-6 months.. 

DIY Homemade Chocolate Facial

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Yield: 1 facial

DIY Homemade Chocolate Facial

A chocolate facial will not only enhance your complexion but also ensure that your skin is healthy and glowing in the long run.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Cocoa Powder

Instructions

  1. using a small microwave safe bowl, soften coconut oil in microwave for about 5-6 seconds.
  2. Add cocoa powder and stir until well combined. Continue stirring until creamy.
  3. Apply to face with brush or fingers. Let site 15-20 minutes, then wash off with warm wet cloth.

Notes

this recipe can easily be increased and stored in an air tight jar at room temperature in the pantry.

If you are going to store it, just remove a tablespoon or two and heat for just a few seconds in the microwave to soften. If you heat it too long and it's too runny, just let it cool until it thickens enough to cream onto your face with out running.

Assuming quality oil is used this face mask can be expected to stay fresh at room temp between 3-6 months.

    I’ve never heard of chocolate facial mask before, probably the only mask that sounds delicious. and it probably tastes good too. ;-) I’ve been meaning to get some coconut oil, I’ve seen on the shelves in the store. I’ll get it next time I see it.

  15. 15

    Loving this facial mask recipe, Cheryl! I already use coconut oil as a facial cleanser and moisturizer. Adding cocoa sounds divine! Love your photo, too. Your posts always make me smile! xo

  16. 16

    I’m totally obsessed with making my own facial/body care products, so this is great! Plus, I already have everything I need. I have a chocolate mask I use right now, but it has coffee in it, so it feels like a pick-me-up. I’m so going to try this!

    I love the color of your eyes in that mask picture by the way. Gorgeous!

    Thanks for hosting!

  17. 17

    Love this! I’m just afraid I might be tempted to eat it! :)

  36. 36

    I will have to try this!

  37. 37

    This is awesome! I can’t wait to make it. You look sooooo good already. ha!

  38. 38

    Um, yes PLEASE!!! Chocolate facial while eating chocolate truffles and sipping a chocolate martini. Dream spa day!

    PS…your eyes are gorgeous!

  39. 39

    I can’t wait to try this.

    This could be the perfect recipe for learning self love. If you love anything with chocolate on it (like I do), and you put it on face? You must also love yourself. So it’s not only a facial, but self help as well. Perfect!

  41. 41

    Sorry, but this recipe is screwed up. The correct amount of coconut oil you should use is 1 to 2 tablespoons and not 1 teaspoon, or else your mixture will be dry and not creamy at all.

  42. 43

    No offense but this recipe is screwed up. You need more like 1 to 2 tablespoons of the coconut oil instead of just 1 teaspoon.
