       Skin mask with chocolate – Getting an appointment in a beauty salon takes time and the services offered there will probably cost a lot as well. So, why waste time and money when you can simply prepare a chocolate skin mask in the comfort of your own home? You just have to heat up a little chocolate, using only warm water, until it becomes liquid. Then you can add a spoon of olive oil and the yolk from one egg. Before you apply the mix on your face, it is a good idea to clean it carefully and wash it with warm water, so that the mask could be more effective. You can leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Then wash your face with warm water again.

       Homemade chocolate scrub – Since you are testing the chocolate therapy, why not also try the effect of the chocolate scrub. You will be able to find a lot of special products in the shops which contain chocolate as an ingredient. They also contain a lot of other chemicals which could be dangerous for your health and skin. You can still enjoy the beneficial effect of the chocolate on your skin without spending so much money. In order to prepare your own homemade chocolate scrub which will remove the dead sells, just mix 2 spoons of sea salt, water and a little coco powder. Then heat it up and before you apply the mix on your skin, you can also add a spoon of raw milk.

       Special chocolate wax – Another excellent thing you can try which will make your skin soft and nice is the chocolate wax. Unlike the scrub which will remove the dead sells and the dirt, the wax will hydrate your skin and will make it look perfect. You can prepare the special blend by mixing together glycerin, cocoa, your favourite essential oil and vitamins of your choosing. After you apply the final products on your skin, you will feel great.

As you can see, the chocolate can be used for many other things except for eating. You might be tempted to eat it right away, but in moments like these just remember how beneficial it can be for your skin when it is mixed with other ingredients. Whether you decide to try the recipe for the skin mask or something else, you will be very happy with the results.
