Milk baths are classic beauty basics. They are effective because the lactic acid in milk helps soften and soothe the skin. Chocolate milk is equally effective; combined with the power of honey, this yummy bath will refresh your skin. Be extra decadent and sip a cup of cocoa while bathing. It is especially relaxing in the evening before going to bed.

• 2 cups chocolate milk
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 2 tablespoons mild liquid soap

1. Stir together all ingredients.

2. Pour under the running water as you fill your tub. 

3. Bathe and relax for 15 to 20 minutes.
