INGREDIENTS
  • 2-3 tbs. dark cocoa powder (at least 70% cacao or more)
  • 1 tsp. raw or organic honey
  • 1. tbs. plain yogurt
MAKE THE MASK
  1. Mix all ingredients together until it forms a thick paste.
  2. You can add more yogurt and honey if you feel like it's still a bit too thick. Apply to clean skin avoiding the eye area.
  3. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and a washcloth that can be stained.
  4. Follow with your daily moisturizer.

Your skin should feel nice and smooth, with a more even skin tone afterward. Plan on tying out this mask? Snap a picture and tag us on Instagram/Twitter with @laurenkelp and #LKbeauty so we can see your creations!
