The heavenly cocoa bean bi-product, cocoa powder, is rich in antioxidants that block off free radicals that speed up aging. Yes, you read it right, chocolate is indeed good for you--as long as it is not the sugary version (sorry!). Unsweetened or raw cocoa is bursting with anti-aging and prettifying benefits. That's why we prepared a sublime and beautifying chocolate mask recipe below that will beautify your face and stir up your senses.

What you will need:

  • Three teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • One teaspoon of honey (it has amazing anti-bacterial and pore-unclogging benefits)
  • One tablespoon of yogurt (adds a zing that clears pimples and acts as a glow booster)


Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Using clean hands, massage the chocolate mask on your face starting on the forehead, down the temples, cheeks, nose, and the jawline. Let your pores suck up all the natural goodness of the mask for a good 10 minutes. Rinse well with cold water, and admire your radiant post-expensive-spa glow. Do this weekly so if anyone asks you your beauty secret, simply reveal with confidence that it’s just chocolate!
