It’s almost Halloween and you know what that means – chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. We don’t know about you but we’re definitely not complaining - who doesn’t love chocolate?! Of course, overdoing it isn’t exactly the best choice for your teeth or your waistline, but luckily there are other ways to get your chocolate fix without the guilt – chocolate facials! That’s right; chocolate in fact can be very beneficial for your skin! Read below as we share what chocolate can do for your skin and a healthy (yes HEALTHY) chocolate recipe that you can enjoy!
Before we discuss the benefits of chocolate, let’s get one thing straight – we’re not suggesting you put a melted chocolate bar or chocolate ice cream on your face! These food products are mixed with other ingredients not recommended for use on the skin! The “good chocolate” we’re referring to is organic cocoa powder, the main component of all of your favorite chocolate foods!
And exactly why do we love organic cocoa powder for your skin? Here are the reasons:
Especially if your skin gets dry during the fall and winter months, chocolate can be just what your skin needs to feel smooth and soft again!
So how do you get your fix on the inside and out?
To reap the benefits of chocolate (cocoa powder) find a spa that has a professional facial treatment that contains organic cocoa, like our Chocofina FUSION Facial. This facial treatment, make with the very best ingredients derived from earth and sea, utilizes organic cocoa powder along with our Laminaria seaweed complex that helps to moisturize the skin for extra soothing, delivering the benefits of both of these super-star skin care ingredients to your skin.
