Her Go-To Products
Welcome to the House of Cocoa!
Did you know that the beans that breed chocolate bars, can also do wonders for the skin?
If you’re thinking of cocoa beans then you’re on the right track but if you haven’t heard of their benefits yet, then you’re in for a treat.
Cocoa is an antioxidant POWERHOUSE!
In previous posts I’ve discussed the magic of antioxidants and their ability to neutralize free radicals (unpaired electrons that destroy skin cells) by balancing them out.
“Antioxidants are like calm meditator cells: they are stable cells with the ability to donate a calming electron to the unstable crazy free radicals. They’re a bit like a chill pill to rebalance and calm down the unstable free radicals while also maintaining their own composure and balance”
–Sonia Haria (Beauty Director)
Believe it or not, cocoa has a greater antioxidant capacity than black tea, green tea, and red wine!
Another lovely perk about cocoa is that it restores the skin’s youthful appearance by protecting it from UV damage and increasing blood flow to the skin. Cocoa consists of phenolic (describes the chemical compound that is synthesized by organisms in response to ecological pressures such as UV radiation) phytochemicals which are responsible for keeping the skin safe from these environmental toxins.
A few of the natural cocoa-based skincare products that I would recommend are listed below:
There’s Good Earth Beauty’s Anti-aging, super moisturizing lipstick concentrated that’s pomegranate oil and of course our lovely cocoa
Purify your lifestyle with Lippy Girl’s Organic Vegan Lipgloss. This gloss will leave your lips softer, smoother and sweeter than they were before. As you can see there are so many colors to choose from, so don’t miss out on hydrating your lips with your favorite shade.
When you mix clay, rose hips, rose petals and cocoa you get the COCOA ROSE EXFOLIATING MASK and this dead skin scrubber will not disappoint! Not to mention the fact that it also smells ah-mazing!
Lastly, one really good product to use in the tub is Moon Valley Organics Cocoa Butter Comfrey Moisturizing Body Bar. This soap will soothe your skin and leave it healthier and revitalized.
