Whether it’s World Chocolate Day, Easter or beyond, chocolate treatments should play a big part at your spa. It isn’t just taste that will draw clients in, either. Cocoa beans contain strong antioxidants, which help tackle cell-damaging free radicals produced by oxygen within our bodies, as well as moisturise the skin. With this in mind, here are just five chocolate treatment ideas to sweeten the deal for those special, chocolatey occasions:
Cocoa butter body scrubs
Before any treatment, it’s important to exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells. Cocoa bean shells and cocoa butter provide the ideal body scrub, containing minerals such as potassium and magnesium to revitalise skin.
Warm body wraps
With its moisturising qualities, cocoa butter can be smothered on clients’ bodies as a body wrap, creating a warm and nourishing experience. This then leaves other areas of the client open for other chocolate treatments.
Chocolate face masques
With its hydrating properties and vitamin B2 – essential for human health – it makes absolute sense to use chocolate as a facial masque. Heated chocolate cream or chocolate mousse masques can create a detoxifying and soothing experience that clients are sure to appreciate.
Milky manicures and pedicures
An easy way to soak up sweet success is with chocolate manicures or pedicures. Start by soaking client hands or feet in warm milk and then move to scrubbing them with sugar. Top off the treatment with a cocoa butter masque to provide the ultimate hydrating experience.
If you have the facilities, why not provide an immersive treatment that involves a bath of milk chocolate? The serotonin-filled chocolate envelopes the skin to smooth and soften it, creating the ultimate chocolate experience and lifting moods with the sweetest smell of all.
