Eat My Chocolate Face

January 30, 2012

… Or run and hide! Yikes!

Seeing as the month love & chocolate is quickly approaching, I found it only necessary to slather it’s glorious goodness all over my face! Okay, so maybe I DID stretch my imagination a bit too far this time. But in my defense, there are hoighty-toighty spas that offer such a thing as chocolate services.

Plus you can indulge guiltlessly without gaining a pound, only silky smooth skin!

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

Plain Yogurt – contains lactic acid that dissolves dead skin cells, natural antibiotic that kills bacteria, zinc which aids in clearing zits

Salt – shrinks pores, helps exfoliate dead skin cells

Coconut Oil – vit E & K, polyphenols are anti-aging, & fatty acids that moisturize w/o causing breakouts

Dark Honey – antibacterial, helps open clogged pores, helps skin retain moisture

      You may find yourself addicted. I had leftover so I put it in the fridge and have used it every night. Slightly concerned I’d get breakouts (over handling my skin) but it’s been quite the opposite. My skin feels as soft as Bubba’s bum.

    I love it! I would love to have this on my face when the fiancΓ© comes home, haha πŸ˜‰

      Hide in the closet and make growling noises. Then pop out! Holy crap… that’d be hilarious or dorky. But then again, I’m kinda like that. Maybe one I’ll tuck away to use myself for April 1st! ha!

    I may need to do this seeing as this darn cleanse I’m on won’t allow for dairy or chocolate – this could be a way of satisfying my cravings without breaking my cleanse! Or I may just get too tempted and start licking the darn stuff off my face haha….

    • Reply missy February 2, 2012 at 2:32 am

      I did lick and it’s not good enough to eat (unless you add sugar to the mix… but don’t bc then you WILL eat it). A cleanse? Do share!

      It really does smell yummy… like hot cocoa only on your face! And quite relaxing to inhale for the 15-20 minutes!

  • Reply Diana January 30, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    I love this idea! I’m just wondering: how did your face feel afterwards? And can you actually eat it….? :)

    • Reply missy February 2, 2012 at 2:36 am

      It feels soft, moisturized, and really clean. You’ll LOVE it. I suppose you can eat it but I’d add 1 t. of sugar if you plan to taste it. ha!

    This felt pretty amazing! Loved it and now I smell like chocolate. πŸ˜‰

    • Reply missy February 2, 2012 at 2:36 am

      Oh YAY!!! Sooo glad to hear someone tried it and liked it as much as I did! The lingering chocolate smell is awesome, isn’t it?

    Interesting, everyday items used for skin care, i love it!

    So Cool! I can’t wait until I can do this with my daughter and her friends too. She’s 8 and I think that this would be so fun. I’m just not sure about the coconut oil. Do you think I could leave it out or sub it with something else? Thanks :))

    • Reply missy March 24, 2012 at 1:05 am

      I’m not sure what to suggest as a substitution. Maybe just add more yogurt? I think you’ll find coconut oil heavenly on your skin. Natural food stores carry it.

  • Reply Candice May 31, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Does it have to be organic yogurt and cocoa powder? I live in a very small town and I can’t find organic cocoa but the organic yogurt is astronomical.

  • Reply sara June 25, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    can you use this without the coconut oil? im allergic but i want to use this

  • Reply Gabrielle C. July 9, 2012 at 3:25 am

    Sara, you could sub Extra virgin Olive Oil for the coconut oil, as it helps your skin as well. Just make sure it is the cold pressed type, because that means it is loaded with all the antioxidants of raw olives. Probably wouldn’t enhance the taste much, though.

    Thanks SO MUCH! I’m headed for the kitchen! I’ve been breaking out lately due to chlorine overdoses. My skin doesn’t know what to do with itself! This should balance it out nicely! <3

    Thank you so much! I tried this tonight and LOVED it! I didn’t use organic cocoa though, so hopefully that will be ok in the am! πŸ˜‰

    Love this face mask, made my skin feel so clean! An unrelated note- how did you do your eye makeup? It looks so great, yet natural.

    thank you

    This sounds amazing! I’m a little hesitant though… Is this ok to use on oily skin??

  • Reply Emma December 27, 2014 at 4:46 am

    Can yogurt be replaced with sour cream?

  • Reply Margo September 4, 2015 at 2:26 pm

    Planning to use this for a young girls slumber party this weekend at our church :)
