Exfoliating Chocolate Mask

A common theme of Valentines day is chocolate.  Most women love the stuff and can't get enough of it.  I am one of those women.  I love this chocolate mask!  It feels luxurious, it's easy and it's EDIBLE.  So, if some just happens to get on your lips when you put it on, go ahead and lick it off. 

1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbs heavy cream
3 tsp oatmeal powder

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.  Massage the mask onto your face and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes.

If you don't have oatmeal powder that's ok.  Take regular oatmeal and put it in a coffee grinder or food processor until it becomes a powder.  The oatmeal will gently exfoliate your skin.  The honey is a wonderful anti-bacterial agent.  It will work to clean and open your pores.  Your face will feel so soft and clean after using this mask.

You will have leftover mask so put it into a airtight container and store it in the fridge.
