A restorative DIY chocolate face mask


By Lauren Kelp

There are actually a lot of studies that show dark chocolate is great for your skin! It's packed with anti-oxidants, and when combined with the anti-inflammatory agents in honey, and the soothing components of plain yogurt, we can whip up a yummy face mask with awesome benefits!


  • 2-3 tbs. dark cocoa powder (at least 70% cacao or more)

  • 1 tsp. raw or organic honey

  • 1. tbs. plain yogurt


  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!
