S.W. Recipe: Dessert Mask
Yum… this mask seriously is good enough to eat. (And you can, if you’d like.) Aside from snack-ability, we love this recipe straight from the pages of our founder Adina Grigore’s book Skin Cleanse for its multitude of benefits: It kills bacteria, hydrates, plus helps repair damaged skin. We highly recommend this one for your girls’ night in. Galentine’s Day party, anyone?
Skin Cleanse Dessert Mask
Cocoa powder helps repair and prevent cell damage because it is full of antioxidants. Sea salt kills bacteria and is great for blemishes. The olive oil will make the salt and cocoa gentler on your skin, while also leaving you moisturized after the exfoliation.
- 4 teaspoons cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
Mix cocoa powder and salt in a small bowl, then stir in olive oil to create a paste. Apply with your fingers and leave on for as long as you’d like. The sea salt may start to sting over time as it works its magic. Rinse carefully—this mask will stain a washcloth. Makes one to two uses and can sit out on your counter for a few days.
