Is there anything as relaxing as a spa day? From facial treatments to the simplicity of human touch, these outings are designed to make you feel pampered, relaxed, and calm. But when you can’t get into a spa or don’t want to spend huge amounts of money on that experience, you can still get the pampered, soothed feeling at your own home. How? Well, by making your own Chocolate Skin Mask at Home.
Yes, you heard taht right, by creating your own facial mask treatment. And, if you’re a chocolate lover, you can even incorporate the science of chocolate skincare. Yes, we said it. You can create a chocolate facial experience in your own home.
There are many formulations of facial masks, including those that contain cacao as part of the ingredient list. Before we get into that though, we think it’s important to talk about an elephant in the room: the idea that chocolate is bad for the skin. At Cocoage Beauty, we dispute that claim, and we’re not the only ones.
Sure, there are different varieties of chocolate, and some are better than others. For example, dark chocolate with high levels of cacao and low sugar content is healthier than milk chocolate. When it comes to beauty products, you’ll want to make sure the cacao you use to create your mask (or that is in the products that are in your skincare regimen) is made of dark chocolate.
Ingredients to Include in a DIY Chocolate Skin Mask
High Quality Cacao: The star of this mask, high quality cacao has high levels of Vitamin C and can help to brighten your skin, increase circulation and reduce redness.
Coconut Oil or Shea Butter: You’ll need some moisture in your mask. Coconut oil is a great base for this sort of treatment because it adds moisture and kills bacteria; shea butter is another option that adds moisture.
Raw Honey: Honey can work magic on acne-prone skin. It can also help to slow aging, and help your skin to glow.
Oatmeal: Cooked and cooled (or even raw) oatmeal can serve as an exfoliating agent in a skin mask because it adds a bit of texture. It helps to clean the pores, and improve the skin’s barriers.
At Cocoage Beauty, we love cacao in our skincare products and we’d love you to give it a try. We have a wide range of products, from cleansers to moisturizers, anti-aging products to face masks containing high quality cacao and other ingredients.
