Rejuvenating Coco Face Mask
1/2 cup of natural cocoa powder
4 tbsps. of ground oatmeal
1/2 cup of fresh honey
4 tbsps. of cream
2 tbsps. of kaolin or white clay
1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large, non-reactive bowl until a regular consistency is achieved and color emerges.
2. Use your hands to mix together the powdery ingredients, and don’t stop mixing until the splotchy colors disappear
Direction of Use:
Apply the resulting compound generously on your face, around your eyes, and on your forehead.
Leave on for twenty to thirty minutes before rinsing off completely.
Rinse off the face mask with lukewarm water.
Finish off your face cleanse with a splash of cool water.
Feel free to use a hypoallergenic soap to reduce the cocoa smell if it doesn’t suit you.
Mask for Dry Skin
1 large egg
3 tbsps. of coconut oil
2 tbsps. of honey
1. Remove the egg yolk.
2. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a non-reactive bowl.
3. Mix until you get a good consistency.
Direction of Use:
Apply to the face generously.
Gently rub the compound inward (toward the nose) to preserve the integrity of the skin.
Leave on for half an hour.
Wash off with lots of water
Warning: Avoid rubbing with a face towel or any other cloth as it can irritate your skin and make it appear drier.
Tip: Take care of your skin according to your skin type. Oily skin needs to be cleansed more often, but not necessarily cleaned out of all its surface oil. Oil or sebum is there for a reason: it protects the skin and makes your skin look supple. Removing all of the oil on the surface of your skin can leave the skin dry and prone to bacterial infection.
