Chocolate Facial

chocolate facialChocolate Facial is an anti-aging and anti-inflammatory skin care treatment.  It reduces swelling, inflammation and sun damage, rejuvenates skin, promotes healing and stimulates circulation. Also provides an overall glow to the skin.

The origin of chocolate dates back to ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations. In fact, chocolate is commonly considered as ”super food” due to its potent antioxidant contents. Along with free radical fighting antioxidants, chocolate is also loaded with polyphenols and minerals such as calcium, magnesium,sulfur, copper, iron, zinc and potassium. These are all vital nutrients for healthy skin in and out.  The nutrients slough away dead skin cells and leave you with a healthy glow. Copper, zinc, and iron increase oxygen and blood flow to your face, which protects your skin from tissue damage. Nutrient-rich cocoa soothes dry, rough, and blemished skin, causing your face to look fresher and healthier.Chocolate also contains healthy fats and vitamin E, which hydrate the skin with their emollient properties. It also tone and nourish your skin.

Flavanols, bioactive compounds found in dark chocolate can protect against sun damage , increase skin density and hydration, and improve blood flow to the skin. Not only will applying dark chocolate directly to your skin help protect your face from sunburn and redness, but the flavanols in cocoa will also help repair existing sun damage and keep your face looking and feeling more hydrated under the sun’s harsh light.        

A facial application of dark chocolate can help reduce physical signs of stress. That is because cocoa can decrease the production of stress hormones, which leads to less collagen breakdown in the skin. As a result, your face will display fewer wrinkles and fine lines, as well as less acne. The skin will look tighter and more toned after being treated with a chocolate facial.

Chocolate Facial skin care treatment includes facial cleanse, exfoliation, steam, extractions, enzyme and chocolate masks, face, neck, decollete, scalp massage, hydration and hand treatment.
