This Chocolate Face Mask Will Make You Happier

Putting chocolate on your face almost sounds as crazy as the egg yolk or even worse, bleach facial. Turns out? It's good for you.

Well, cacao (chocolate in its purest form) is at least.

Beauty brand Clayspray has launched a red clay and cacao face mask rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, B, D, E and K.


Why does it contain cacao? The powder dries on the skin to form a thick clay-like mask, but it's the chocolate aroma that's more important here.

The scent has is said to relax the mind and it's been proven that the flavanoids found in cacao boost concentration and memory.

Scientists have also discovered that the antioxidants in dark chocolate protect against sun damage by increasing the resistance to UV rays.

Just another excuse to indulge in your favourite chocolate bar every now and again...
