Chocolate & cocoa is definitely not kak, no matter what the picture above suggests, ehm. And although eating way too much chocolate might bring you out in spots & add a fold or two to your belly, chocolate & cocoa as such are somewhat miracle ingredients in the world of cosmetics. Let’s have a look what they can do for your skin – especially for the irritated skin of your legs after you’ve shaved!
There are multiple ways how to use chocolate & cocoa in your beauty regime. One of the most obvious (& easy peasy) techniques is using cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is brilliant for combating dry & sensitive skin. It keeps your skin hydrated (shaving, epilating and waxing can be often the reason why your skin is so damn dry) and battles against your stretch marks, and even scars (might be useful if you’re quite razor-uncoordinated). You can either use pure cocoa butter or buy something like Palmer’s body butter which is supposed to be one of the best cocoa butter body products out there. Costs about £2 & you’re sorted!
For those who are a bit more into DIY – here’s a simple recipe for a smooth leg treatment – feat a lot of chocolate! Nom!
What you’re gonna need:
⇢ 1 bar of chocolate
