Why Choose a Chocolate Mask For Your Next At-Home Facial?
Posted on February 22 2019
There are times when every woman wants to feel pampered, relaxed and beautiful, right? An easy way to accomplish this is to add a chocolate mask to your skincare regimen.
These facial masks have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and there are several reasons for that – from the health benefits of dark cacao to the sweet smell, and especially the beauty benefits – brighter skin, less inflammation, even less obvious wrinkles and signs of stress.
A chocolate mask is a fantastic option for individuals who love the way a steaming cup of hot cocoa smells; it provides benefits that other formulations and ingredient combinations might not have in abundance.
Key Ingredients to Look For in a Chocolate Mask
Whether you’re making yourself a mask or you’re buying one, there are a few things you’ll want to look for in the ingredient list.
Antioxidant rich dark cacao powder: This ingredient is important in decreasing inflammation and redness, in improving collagen production and elasticity, and in fighting the damage from free radicals. There are also an abundance of minerals, like zinc, potassium, magnesium, iron, and copper, which bring a variety of health benefits.
Green Tea Extract: This extract is full of polyphenols that help to fight the signs of aging. Who wants to see those wrinkles appear?
Coconut Oil: This element can help to deliver much-needed moisture to your skin without clogging your pores. Besides that, if you like the smell of coconut, you may find that you enjoy the scents left behind from your skincare products.
These elements add a bit of moisture, protect from ultraviolet rays that can affect everyone, even on cloudy days, and help to increase your vitamin intake a tiny bit.
