Chocolate Milk Deep-Cleansing Facial Powder

Are you a chocoholic? Then you'll appreciate the yummy-ness of this chocolate milk facial cleanser.

The cocoa powder, powdered milk, and baking soda are gentle exfoliants, sloughing away dead skin cells and leaving your skin super soft and smooth. White kaolin clay and oatmeal help deeply cleanse the skin without over-drying.

This is an awesome treat for your skin when it's looking a bit dull. You can also use this is place of a soap-based cleanser.

If your skin is sensitive, cut the baking soda down to 1 teaspoon or leave it out altogether. And be certain to use pure cocoa powder, not the chocolate milk drink mix.

You'll love how easy this one is to make. Let me know what you think!

RECIPE: Chocolate Milk Deep Cleansing Facial Powder
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup white kaolin clay
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons oatmeal powder (see below for how to make this)
1 tablespoon baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until they're all blended well. Too easy!

You may have to make up some oat powder first. Just take some uncooked, old-fashioned rolled oats and put into a blender. Blend for about 30 seconds or so. The result -- oatmeal powder.  (It's great for masks, soap additions, and other skin care products, too.)

This milk cleanser can be kept in a small jar on the bathroom shelf where it will easily last for 12 months, as long as you aren't dipping wet hands into the jar. 

To use: Mix about a tablespoonful of the powder with just enough water to make a smooth paste (you can do this in your palm.) Massage over the face and neck as you would a typical cleanser. Rinse with warm water.
