I am SO excited to share this recipe with you!! Besides the fact that it’s super easy and comes together in a matter of minutes, it smells JUST LIKE BROWNIES. I?m not even kidding. I wanted to lick my face the entire time I had it on (and I actually could have because it’s completely edible). This is by far my favorite twist on a facial mud mask and I’m pretty sure you’ll love it too!
Don’t be fooled by the small amount of ingredients this recipe requires. They all pack a punch when it comes to skincare. Honey is awesome for fighting acne and pimples. Coconut Oil is amazing for softening, moisturizing, and soothing the skin. Cocoa is FULL of antioxidants (I used dark cocoa for extra oomph) that work to repair damaged skin and peppermint essential oil calms irritation, itchiness and redness.
Start by mixing 6 tablespoons of cocoa powder with 2 tablespoons coconut oil and 3 teaspoons of honey. You’ll have to mash these ingredients together at first until the dry blends with the wet, then you can really work to stir it all up.
Your mask will look EXACTLY like brownie batter (and smell like it too!).
To use: smear the mixture onto warm damp skin. When you begin to massage it, the mask will mix with the moisture on the skin and smooth out. If you feel that it’s not spreading easily, simply add a little warm water with your finger tips and continue to smear across your skin. Leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes and rinse away with warm water. Follow with your favorite moisturizer for soft, supple skin!
Just beware- smelling like a brownie for 30 minutes WILL cause you to crave brownies. I made a batch right after I rinsed my mask off.
