How to Make A Hot Cocoa Facial

Hot chocolate isn't just for drinking! YouTube beauty vlogger Stephanie Nadia shows you how to make a super-quick four-ingredient face mask for glowing skin.


In moderation, dark chocolate can be great for your health: It can enhance memory and cognition, improve heart health, and help you curb cravings and lose weight. And it turns out that chocolate can also be good for your skin. Chocolate skin-care products are everywhere right now and boast a laundry list of good-for-skin perks, including improving skin's hydration and texture. Thanks to this super quick recipe from YouTube beauty vlogger Stephanie Nadia, you can DIY with this hot chocolate and marshmallow face mask that will have skin glowing in minutes. (P.S. Soothing chocolate bikini waxes are a thing too.) 


You will need: 

  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • A few drops marshmallow root extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 teaspoons marshmallow leaf tea

Mix all of the ingredients together until it forms a creamy paste, add more cacao powder as needed. Apply to skin and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.
