Innovative Skincare: Why Chocolate is a Mom's Best Friend!

Jun 14, 2008
Why waste all that money on expensive skin care products when you can knock up some great inexpensive innovative skincare products from stocks in your kitchen cupboard, like chocolate, honey, thick cream, and oatmeal! Just make sure your kids don't eat the mixture before you have a chance to apply it!

It is true, chocolate is becoming one of the most popular additions to beauty regimes. It softens the skin, helping to release serotonin, which makes you feel happy and is one of the most natural remedies for skin care. It is being used in some of the best salons out there.

Most people will tell you that chocolate is bad for you; well they don't know what they are talking about. Okay if you eat to much of it you will get fat, but it has a more beneficial use for your skin. Now you can buy chocolate without the guilt. Cocoa is the ingredient you really want and the stronger the better, as cocoa contains a lot of antioxidants.

Now let's take a look at how you use the chocolate in recipes, to create natural remedies for skin care. What you need to do is mix 4 tablespoons of cocoa (not strictly chocolate I know, but when mixed with the other bits, it is good enough to eat), 3 tablespoons of honey (the runny variety), 2 tablespoons of thick cream (which can be sour cream) and a level tablespoon of oatmeal, now you are ready.

Once the mixture is made, don't eat all of it, you will need to massage it into and around your face. Then all you have to do is lay back and make sure that all pets, children and anything else with a tongue is nowhere around you for the next twenty minutes. After this time, if you are tempted to eat the mixture - don't! Just wash it off with lukewarm water and feel the benefits.

For the next twenty minutes you can relax, with the recipe applied to your face, the scent of the recipe will even help you do this. Just make sure the kids and any pets aren't around or they'll be licking your face and you won't get the benefits. So the oatmeal exfoliates as you rub the mixture onto your face, the honey unclogs pores and gives a deep cleanse and the cocoa soothes, moisturizes and makes you feel good, because of the release of serotonin.

What sweet bliss! Finish your rest off with a warm water facial and witness the results that you have been paying hand over fist for, before falling to the temptation of chocolate. All in a good cause of course, and you'll look good enough to eat! Now you are with the people in the know, on what else you can do with chocolate and other ingredients from your kitchen. You too can have plenty of your own homemade innovative skincare products.

Keep them to yourself or share these wonderful innovative skincare recipes with your friends and family, just make sure you keep the best ones for yourself. There are plenty of good recipes around and all it takes to get them is a little bit of internet research on natural remedies for skin care.
