DIY Chocolate Face Mask

This totally delicious and completely nutritious (well, for your skin) face mask is an amazing way to show yourself some love (a must for any witch) and create a little magic! Your Mystic Mage Jem has created a fun and simple face mask DIY that will help your skin glow, as one of the best estheticians in New Jersey, she knows what she is talking about!

First, let’s talk a little about the ingredients you will be using for this DIY face mask.

  • Chocolate: Chocolate contains flavanols, which are antioxidants that help your skin protect itself from sun damage. This means fewer wrinkles, bye bye dark spots and hello glow! Improving skin hydration and thickness are two keys to healthy, youthful skin.
  • Honey: Antioxidant-rich to slow down the aging process, naturally antibacterial and great for acne and congestion. Soothing and moisturizing, honey is great for dry, aging, mature and sensitive skin types. Honey is also a humectant, which is a natural water binder.
  • Yogurt: The lactic acid in yogurt is a natural exfoliant, dissolving dead skin cells while tightening pores. Moisturizes while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Lemon Juice: Optional Vitamin C, brightens the complexion and helps to fade age spots and sun spots.

Now, let’s get into how you make this amazing mask!

Melt a few pieces of dark chocolate. You could also substitute 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder.

Add in 1 tsp of honey. I prefer raw, local honey, but any is fine.

1 tsp of yogurt. I prefer organic Greek yogurt, but any is ok. I only had organic banana yogurt in the house, and that worked just fine!

1 tsp of lemon juice. If you’re sensitive or dry, a few drops are more than enough. If you have chronically reactive or rosacea-prone skin, I would suggest omitting this item.

The great thing about this mask is that the portions don’t have to be exact, and if you’re missing any ingredients, that’s ok! All of these ingredients are beneficial to the skin, so use as much or as little as you have in the house.

I like to apply my mask directly to clean, dry skin with a mask brush. If you don’t have a mask brush or a makeup brush you’d like to use, you can always apply with your fingers.

Leave on the skin 10-15 minutes, then rinse clean with warm water. Follow up with your favorite toner, serum, moisturizer and eye cream.

Now your skin will look fresh, feel amazing and hydrated and be ready to take on your witchy day!

The great thing about this mask is that the portions don’t have to be exact, and if you’re missing any ingredients, that’s ok! All of these ingredients are beneficial to the skin, so use as much or as little as you have in the house.

Every witch needs to take time for self-care and self-love – these words get thrown around a lot in today’s world but just taking a little bit of time for yourself and doing something for you to help you feel great will create some real magic in your life!
