A Fun at Home Facial Mask!

Hey Barbizon of Akron family, skip the salon and set up shop at home! I am here to give you a quick, fun and easy recipe for the perfect facial mask!

The mask I am going to talk about is one of my ALL TIME favorites! It’s called the Cocoa Powder Mask! According to Speedy Remedies, coco powder is considered to be good for your skin because the powder is rich in antioxidants! Who knew chocolate could actually be good for you, right? 
Ok, to start, wash your face with an exfoliating scrub! It’s important to get off dry and dead skin so the mask can really do its’ job. I like to use Clean and Clear Deep Action Exfoliating Scrub because it feels awesome! You can purchase it and other scrubs at any drug store!

Make sure you pick up some organic cocoa powder, organic because it will be richer in antioxidants, meaning it will be even better for your skin!  Mix the powder with an adequate amount of water so that the combination turns into a paste! Put the paste on your face, avoiding eyes and mouth, and leave it on for 10-to-15 minutes! Hey, if you’d like, slice up some cucumbers, and put those over your eyes! Now you’ll really feel like you are at a salon! It’s like getting the royal treatment except at a bargain hunter’s price!

When you wash off the mask, you will notice that your skin feels softer, and rejuvenated! What a quick and fun way to make your skin glow! Wearing this mask every couple of weeks will really keep your skin looking fresh and healthy!

Make a night out of it and invite your friends over for some spa fun! You ladies could even go all out with some manicures and pedicures! What a great way to save money, have fun and impress your friends with this girly idea!
