Chocolate Face Mask for Glowing Skin
This mask includes several ingredients that are all excellent for the skin…
Skin Benefits of Raw Cacao
Cacao powder is high in antioxidants, magnesium, selenium, manganese, zinc, copper, potassium, phosphorous, iron, calcium, pantothenic acid, folate, B6, nicain, and riboflavin. These minerals and other components work together to prevent skin cell damage and repair damaged skin.
The caffeine in cacao increases circulation to the skin to reduce redness and tone skin for a firmer appearance. Theobromine is another antioxidant found in cacao less stimulating than caffeine but still known to increase blood flow to the skin. Theobromine has also been studied for its ability to protect against sun damage and even cancer.
Skin Benefits of Banana
Bananas are high in vitamin C, B6, folate, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and niacin. There’s also vitamin A, thiamin, selenium, iron and pantothenic acid in smaller doses.
Skin Benefits of Yogurt
Yogurt is rich in probiotics, calcium, vitamins A and D, B12, B2, and phosphorous.
Skin Benefits of Raw Honey
Raw honey is naturally antibacterial, making it great for acne-prone skin types. This sticky substance is anti-inflammatory, helps heal blemishes, balances pH, and cleanses pores. It’s highly moisturizing and combats the signs of aging skin by increasing firmness and decreasing skin imperfections.
Here’s how to combine all these delicious ingredients into a natural face mask:
