FML: Here’s The Best DIY Face Mask For A Break Up

Break ups are tough! No, they totally suck. There’s really no easy way to get over them, and as much as you wish life could pause and you could wake up and get it together – it’s just not that easy. Because the world keeps moving, you have to continue your daily routine with puffy eyes, dark circles and all. Yes, break up face is real.

Instead of loading on and reapplying concealer throughout the day, try this DIY mask that’s made with items found in your home. Double bonus? It’s the perfect distraction from your broken heart.

Because it’s a break up mask, it contains a key “just got dumped” ingredient – chocolate. The cocoa powder reduces aging, while the coffee grounds soothe your face and removes swelling and puffiness – no one will even know you’ve had a couple of rough days! Last but not least, greek yogurt will bring moisture back to your skin, which you may have lost through all the tears (okay, not really, but we know that stress does wreak havoc on your skin!). Check it out below – after all, looking good is the best revenge, ever!


Bottle of wine
2 Tbsp. cocoa power
1 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp greek yogurt


First, pour yourself a glass of wine (this is for you to drink, not for your face!). Next, put all the ingredients together (not including the wine) in a bowl and mix well. Spread evenly over your skin. Allow to sit for 20 minutes and rinse off with water.
