One of the great discoveries in the last few years is the benefits of chocolate. The antioxidants in dark chocolate have been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of clotting and increase blood circulation to the heart, thus lowering the risks of stroke, coronary heart disease, and death from heart disease. And it is delicious as a treat.
Cocoa butter, also derived from the cacao bean, is a powerhouse of healing elements for the skin. The cocoa butter is extracted from the bean after it is dried, roasted, and pressed. The antioxidants in cocoa butter help fight free radicals, which cause aging and dull and dry skin. The rich moisturizing properties of cocoa butter penetrate deep into the skin, plumping and healing dry skin. It is also an excellent moisture barrier to help skin stay hydrated throughout the day.
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and chocolate, we offer you or your loved one a luxurious nourishing chocolate facial and a glass of champagne.
Our facial starts with a gentle exfoliating peel. After removing dead skin cells, we apply cocoa butter to nourish and regenerate the skin. Cocoa butter will plump and moisturize your skin, delivering antioxidants for protection. After deeply hydrating the skin, we follow with a stimulating massage for the face, neck, and decollete. Massage increases blood flow to bring nutrients to the skin and stimulate the complexion. The last step is a chocolate fudge mask to plump and feed dry skin.
