Prepare a facial moisturizing mask with chocolate and honey

We have always heard that if you eat a lot of chocolate, you get beans. Here we debunk this myth and teach you how to prepare a chocolate and honey mask to hydrate the skin.

Although chocolate seems to be an enemy for skin imperfections, it is increasingly used in the cosmetics industry since several of its components are healthy for the skin.

In addition to mitigating the effects of stress, it serves as a hydrating and restorative therapy. Remember: you should always eat moderately and thus give your body an extra antioxidant in order to improve health. Home treatments like face masks are a great option to combat acne and achieve smoother, firmer skin.

The mask based on the combination of chocolate and honey is one of the many ways to use this food as a product for skin care. Of course, and as we always advise, it is optimal to acquire dark chocolate with at least 60% cocoa, which is the beneficial one.

The treatment is recommended for dry skin, but it can also be used on normal and oily skin. In addition to providing antioxidants, this homemade treatment will attribute moisturizing benefits that retain the skin's natural water to prevent changes in its pH and has exfoliating qualities that facilitate the removal of dead skin and other residues that remain attached to the skin.
