Super Moisturizing & Anti-Aging Cocoa Face Mask

Super Moisturizing & Anti-Aging Cocoa Face Mask


1 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 ½ -2 tbsp Greek Yogurt

Directions:  Combine both ingredients together in a bowl starting with only 1 ½ tbsp yogurt.  If to thick to stir and blend together add in another ½ tbsp yogurt.  Apply to face gently with clean fingers and let sit / soak in for about 15 minutes.  Then gently rinse off with warm or cool water, not hot water.  Wash face after rinsing the mask off, while softly smoothing the mask off don't pull hard. You don't want to create wrinkles, the very thing that this mask helps to reduce and prevent!  Keep extras in a container or covered in the frig for about a week. (There was enough for two masks covering my face, neck and chest area.)

Millions of women in history have used cocoa as part of their beauty regimen since it is very moisturizing.  The Aztecs used it way back in the day; and it is still used in many cultures today.  Cocoa has anti-aging properties from its Flavanols, which defend against inflammation causing free radicals.  The less inflammation going on in and on the body the better, because inflammation causes a plethora of negative side effects including premature aging.
