Chocolate Mask

Its all about the CHOCOLATE!!!!!

This is one of my favorite masks to do with my kids.  It only has 3 ingredients and it smells SO good.  I know it seams crazy to do face masks with little kids but you have to try this one because its amazing on your skin.

Mix together the following ingredients: yields 6 masks

1 container of yogurt that has 4% milkfat (this is where the lactic acid is found)

2 tablespoons of unprocessed coco powder (yummy)

2 tablespoons of aloe (this bonds the mask ingredients together, if you don’t have aloe you can use honey)

My girls are so excited to do “spa” day (hum, wonder where thy get that from). This mask, for me, is less about “me time” and more about spending time doing something I love and sharing it with my girls.

With little kids you really have to be careful about what you put on their skin. Even things that are all natural or have natural ingredence might be more damaging or just as potent as chemicals.  I love doing this mask in the winter because the yogurt used in it contains lactic acid which is a natural AHA.

 

Usually when I do face masks its my “me time”.   I want my girls to understand the importance of “me time” as well. Its important for me to share how valuable it is to take care of myself and how to make it a priority.   When I create this small time by myself its usually when the girls are home. I let them know my “plans” (ha) I lock the bathroom door and usually with in 3 minutes  they are knocking on it, or fighting, or sneaking treats… ah yes very relaxing moments… but I do as best as I can to tune them out.  Whenever I take this little piece of time for me in the end I have more perspective and better clarity.  Sometimes all it takes is 20 minutes of alone time.

Let me know if you try to this mask with your kids and how they liked it?
