Transcript:How to Make a Chocolate Face Mask

Hi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com. Dark chocolate - better for your skin than you think! Here is how to use dark chocolate on your skin for a delicious facial. If you love chocolate and happen to have some to spare, try this delicious facial.

Chocolate Face Mask Ingredients

You will need:
  • 1 bar dark chocolate
  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup milk

Mix the Milk and Salt

Into a small bowl, pour in your cup of milk. Add in three tablespoons of salt and mix everything together so the salt dissolves.

Melt the Chocolate

Set up double boiler. Fill the saucepan quarter full and place a small bowl on top so it doesn't touch the water. Set the heat to medium. Break chocolate into pieces so the chocolate melts faster and place it into the bowl. Stir it with a whisk so it melts more evenly. When it is completely melted, take it off the heat

Mix the Face Mask Ingredients

Add milk-salt mixture to the melted chocolate and stir it together so everything combines. Cool the mixture until the room temperature.

Apply to the Chocolate Face Mask

Cover yourself with a towel so the melted chocolate doesn't ruin your clothes. Apply to your face with a wooden stick or your hand. Make sure that the mask is not hot so it doesn't burn your face. Let it stay for about 15-20 minutes while you read, lay down, or relax. Then wash it off with a mild cleanser and water. Be thorough so you don't end up smelling like dessert for the rest of the day.
