Chocolate Face Mask
Want to have a softer younger looking skin and a clear complexion? Try this chocolate, cream and olive oil face mask once a week for a month or so and see the difference. Add 3 tbsp of olive oil and a little cream (dairy) to 2 cups of cocoa powder to make a dough that is not too runny or stiff. Spread it on your face and relax with your eyes closed for 15 - 20 minutes. Why is this mask so good for your skin? Linoleic acid. Two cups of coca power contains slightly over 2 tbsp of pure fat, of which 10-12% is linoleic acid, add this to 3 tbsp of olive oil which gives you another 12% or so of linoleic acid and you have a facial mask containing at least 25% linoleic acid. The main nutrient that gives a baby beautiful subtle skin is none other than linoleic acid. Apart from making you appear more youthful over a period of time (especially weathered looking skin) this treatment also assists sufferers of dermatitis.
