Emergency Face Mask * When you need a quick Face Fix
Too many late nights or too many early mornings -
It all shows on our faces - here is a quick fix to refresh your face and look good with a few home ingredients.
Cocoa Powder (not instant chocolate) but real Cocoa Powder is not only great tasting but it also wonderful for the skin. Cocoa is from the Cacao Tree (Theobroma cacao) which is cultivated all over the world, mainly in West African countries. The tree produces cacao pods which make cocao powder which is has many culinary and medical properties as it contains the minerals calcium, zinc, potassium as well as caffeine and theobromine.
Both caffeine and theobromine are great at stimulating and draining fat cells so excellent at skin firming as they can firm the skin as well as get rid of puffy skin.
Green Tea - Get the kettle on and make a brew.
Green Tea is an acquired taste (I love it) but it also has great skin benefiting properties as it is packed full of antioxidants which can repair the skin and improve the skin appearance due to the compound in the green tea called catechin.
So the only ingredients you need are Cocoa Powder and (cold) Green Tea
Take 1 heaped teaspoon of Cocoa Powder and mix it with 2 Cold teaspoons of Green Tea.
Mix together and put the paste over the face and relax for 15 minutes
Rinse the paste of with cold water and see the difference.
It is a easy face fix.
