Haute Cocoa

On a snowday like today, with transportation limited and snow drifts piled high, there's no need to venture outside for some pampering. Personally I'm enjoying hot drinks (tea, coffee, and cocoa) on this chilly day and planning on an at-home spa treatment like this one from Bliss Spa (New York City) below.

All-Natural Chocolate Facial Mask


  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsps of heavy cream
  • 2 tsps of cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 3 tsps of oatmeal powder


Mix all ingredients together and smooth onto face. Relax for 10 minutes; then rinse with warm water.

This treatment relies on dairy and brings along many of the ingredient's skin-soothing properties. For more on dairy in skincare, check out our March story.
