Chocolate Milk Cleanser

I love, love, love chocolate.  Love the way it tastes, the way it smells, even the color (such a pretty, rich brown, don't you think?)  I just about did cartwheels when I heard it contained healthful antioxidants.

So I got to thinking... would chocolate's antioxidants do anything for the skin?  I don't know.  But it sure feels good on the skin.

This chocolate milk cleanser is a nice exfoliant that is gentle enough to use every day.  Be certain to use real cocoa powder, not the chocolate milk drink mix.  Let me know what you think!

Chocolate Milk Cleanser
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/4 cup white kaolin clay
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons oat powder
1 tablespoon baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.  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 -- oat 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 last for months. 

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.
