Cocoa romantic ritual
St. Valentine’s Day: such a perfect occasion to surprise your beloved one with aphrodisiac dinners or romantic escapes, in dreamy and exclusive locations, isn’t it? The purpose of the month offers a “do-it-yourself” beauty and wellness option, through two steps, in order to recreate a proper SPA ritual at home!
Both the following natural recipes use antioxidant and soothing cocoa benefits. It is a beauty precious help and a perfect ingredient to have a young and elastic skin, to fight against free radical and making it bright and glowing, indeed.
Step 1: Brown sugar and cocoa body scrub
In a cup put 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, a warm oil (warmed up separately), sweet almond oil (or a neutral one preferably), a teaspoon of cocoa powder.
Blend all the ingredients and apply on wet skin, massaging and putting more pressure on knees, elbows and feet.
At the end, rinse and dry the skin.
Step 2: Whipped cream and cocoa body mask
Put the whipped cream in a bowl and add a teaspoon of cocoa. Blend all the ingredients and apply on the body skin, massaging carefully. Leave the mask on for 5 minutes and rinse.
The result of this second phase is a sensual and sweet skin, perfect for your romantic date and… your beloved one will be speechless!
