I LOVE all things chocolate. Do you?

I have only met 1 client in my beauty business who said she HATES chocolate! Can you believe it? Hates chocolate?

Are you celebrating World Chocolate Day today?

Some of you have asked me to share a chocolate recipe for your skin and so I am sharing it.

My Crazy for Chocolate Face Mask

1/3 cup of cocoa powder

2 TSP of heavy cream

2 TSP organic honey

MIX these all together with a mini whisk. It may be a bit messy for some. BUT I love it.

Apply to your clean face and leave on at least 10 minutes.

Rinse well.

Enjoy a piece of chocolate afterwards and savor the delicious beauty and benefits of a piece of chocolate on your tongue and skin.

Sweet Dreams!

FYI

If you really love chocolate and the benefits for your skin. Check out The Chocolate Royal Bar by The Chocolate Skin Care Factory on Instagram.

Our Bodies Need Some LOVE!

At times like these we need to take care of our immune system and body too. Since it is summer and we shed our clothes and show more skin we need to also slough off dead skin cells. As well as hydrate the skin on our face and body too. One of my clients shared this recipe with me a long time ago. And I recently discovered it in my pandemic cleaning purge of some paper work etc.

I almost forgot how much I like this recipe alongside eating a bowl of oats or granola with home-made yogurt and fruit in season. To make home-made from scratch yogurt I use Belle + Bella. They have an amazing starter packet and unit to make it. It is fun and when i have leftovers (right) instead of licking the spoon I use the fresh yogurt on my face for a gentle neck and face mask.

What you will need for this hand or body recipe:

1 cup of olive oil

1/2 cup of ground up organic oats

1 tbs. vanilla

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

She stirsΒ  in all ingredients and suggests you take some time in the tub.

Place a handful of the mix onto your body. She recommends paying close attention to rough areas like,elbows,knees, hands and feet. Allow the scrub to rest on your skin. Next she recommends rubbing with warm water and a washcloth or a loofah sponge.

Rinse well.

After you get out of the tub. Dry your skin slightly and while damp apply your favorite hand and body lotion.

Your skin will feel soft and fresh you’ll feel brand new!

 

 

Wine 🍷 Anyone?

I wanted to share a glass of wine with my husband while in quarantine and decided to take it a bit further. So, being the skin care professional and makeup artist I am I had to make something with a beauty and self care twist.
