Chocolate…Who doesn’t love this delight??? It keeps me craving for more, more and more! If the very thought of biting into a piece of chocolate makes you happy, then how about toppling it all over your face? Psychology says that the very aroma of chocolate stimulates the emotional ‘feel-good’ centers of the brain.

Chocolates are full of antioxidants which preserve your youth and beauty by fighting free radicals from hurting collagen – a protein which imparts elasticity to our skin, revitalizes and moisturizes the skin and helps in renewal of skin cells.

Then why not smoothen this guilt- free indulgence that imparts a healthy glow to your skin and that too when it is available at the ease of your home. These exotic beauty treatments in a saloon can weigh heavy on pocket! I bring to you a simple yet effective DIY face mask-

Mix 1 tsp Unsweetened Cocoa powder with 2 tsp egg white(less or more depending upon the consistency of the mixture). The concoction should be thick enough to slather on face and it shouldn’t drip. Apply it to your face and relax for about 30 minutes till it dries completely. Wash off to see the radiant you! Apply the regular moisturizer after that and you are ready to go.

Along with the benefits of chocolate, the egg white in this mask will help tighten your skin to erase the fine lines and also improve the skin tone.

I had a splendid experience indulging in this chocolate face pack.

Experience it, to believe it 🙂

Don’t forget to share your experience!

Mattify it!

24-1

Getting worried about your facial skin looking greasy, shiny like a frying pan? Not anymore! Now you can have a perfect matt and grease free skin at the ease of your home. Try my DIY 3 in 1 facial mask which also serves as a face scrub and a face wash. This can be the best treatment at your rescue for oily skin with blackheads.

RICE MASK

Ever wondered that rice can serve as potent for your skin? It helps absorb excess oil from the skin. Its other added benefits are: – it aids in getting soother and softer skin, reduce fine lines and blemishes, even out skin tone and reduce inflammation. It is a much over-looked skin care product that can even rival the best commercial products.

INGREDIENTS

RICE POWDER

OAT POWDER

EGG WHITE

HONEY

LEMON JUICE/ROSE WATER

Keep grinded rice and oat powder in an equal quantity in a container. So that every time you apply the mask, you won’t have to grind it again and again. Mix all the ingredients together in such a proportion that you get a smooth paste. Apply it on your face and leave for 15-20 minutes. Lightly scrub it off when it dries and wash off. I would suggest applying this luxurious face pack every night before going to bed as a substitute of face wash followed by a nice oil free moisturizer or a gel.

See the difference yourself! 🙂
