Chocolate Face Packs: A Treat for Your Skin

While your taste buds do adore chocolate, your skin can also appreciate the magic of this sinful treat. Check out some of the amazing chocolate face packs you can whip up at home.

For dry skin
Take 2 tablespoons of chocolate powder and add 4 tablespoons of milk and 1 tablespoon of honey. Mix to form a paste. Apply the paste on your face and let it rest for half an hour. Rinse with cold water. For best results, steam your face before applying the pack so that the skin-pores are open.
For oily skin
Take half-a-handful of lemon peels and bake them in the oven, on low heat, for 3 minutes. Grind the peels into a powder and add equal parts chocolate and yogurt until it’s a fine paste. Apply the pack to your face and let it rest for 30 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Anti-ageing
Add 2 tablespoons of chocolate powder to the white of 1 egg and beat well. Apply the mask to your face, ensuring that it is spread evenly. Let it sit for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. For best results, apply moisturiser immediately after rinsing.
Adding glow
Mix half-a-handful of chocolate powder with half-a-handful of fuller’s earth in a bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Apply the pack to your face, let it rest for 20 minutes, then rinse off with cold water. For best results, clean your face with a cloth dipped in rose water before applying the pack.
Removing blemishes
Mix 1 tablespoon of chocolate and 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel with 2 tablespoons of honey. Apply the mixture to your face while massaging gently. Let the pack dry for 15 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. While you can use this face pack at any time, it is especially important to apply it on days when you have spend a lot of time in direct sunlight.
