Organic Cocoa Face Mask

Adding face masks to your skin regimen can be a total game changer. Even though we wash our face with a facial cleanser, it isn’t always sufficient. See, our skin can come across many harmful substances in our day to day lives. Whether it be air pollution, sleeping with makeup on, secondhand smoke, or a dirty pillowcase. The list goes on! We created a cocoa, honey, and yogurt face mask that helps hydrate and rejuvenate your skin.

Why are face masks important?

Masks can give you that extra pow that your skins yearns for. There are various masks to choose from and they all aid with problematic areas on your face. It’s important to know what your skins needs. Let’s say you notice dry patches throughout your cheeks and around your nose. Not only should you moisturize but you should try using a mask that can help hydrate your skin too.
