Chocolate beauty treatments
Chocolate is not only good to eat but is full of feel good chemicals. It's packed with vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium - and what's more, there are lots of fantastic chocolate beauty treatments...
Chocolate beauty treatments include:
A chocolate body wrap uses cocoa butter to soften and moisten the skin. A standard wrap lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. After exfoliation, melted chocolate is poured over the body and topped with foil. The result is smooth, hydrated skin that smells delicious.
Chocolate cream face masks leave skin plump and radiant.
There are lots of hair treatments that contain chocolate, cocoa beans and cocoa butter. They leave the hair shiny and glossy. Some spas even offer chocolate manicures and pedicures, complete with chocolate hand and foot masks.
Benefits of chocolate beauty treatments
According to The Good Spa Guide, chocolate contains twice as many antioxidants as red wine and two or three times as many as green tea. These antioxidants reduce blood pressure and improve heart function.
