Beauty you could eat

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Madi­son Wil­liams

CHOCOLATE is a pereni­ial favourite of the ladies but now there’s a new rea­son to adore the co­coa bean.

Chocolate is be­ing used as a body mask in pro­gres­sive spa sa­lons th­ese days to help re­duce signs of age­ing, soften skin and lower stress.

Divine Beauty in Moss­man has in­tro­duced a fizzing co­coa body wrap and chocolate mask and I de­cided to try it out.

Chocolate is rich in an­tiox­i­dants, a com­pound that makes skin feel silkier and more youth­ful.

It helps to nour­ish hair, skin and nails, soften skin, en­hance blood cir­cu­la­tion and zap stress and anx­i­ety. The beau­ti­cian who treated me, Re­nay ex­fo­li­ated my limbs and torso with a co­coa body ex­fo­liant be­fore ap­ply­ing the warm co­coa mixed paste.

I was wrapped in an alu­minium blan­ket to keep the mix­ture warm and en­sure it was able to pen­e­trate my pores.

Af­ter 20 min­utes in the alu­minium blan­ket I was told to wash the mix­ture off in the shower adjacent to my beauty room.

Next came the chocolate face mask which was al­most as deca­dent as the body wrap.

The mask also goes on as a warm liq­uid but as it be­gins to cool it so­lid­i­fies pre­vent­ing prod­ucts ap­plied un­derneath from evap­o­rat­ing. In­stead they are forced into the skin en­sur­ing deeper pen­e­tra­tion and max­i­mum ef­fect.

Co­coa beans are pow­er­ful en­er­gis­ers due to their high con­cen­tra­tion of caf­feine and sero­tonin.

So as well as do­ing won­ders for my skin, the treat­ment left me feel­ing en­er­gised with an en­riched well­be­ing.

The co­coa which is teamed with nat­u­ral plant ex­tracts helps to ex­fo­li­ate, soften and make skin glow and look firmer.

I smelled so won­der­ful for days af­ter that I put on weight thanks to my height­ened chocolate ad­dic­tion.

I am a true con­vert.
