February, otherwise known as ‘Chocolate Month’, is a perfect time to pamper yourself. A mid winter pick me up. What better way than a spa day in your very own home using things already in your pantry.

Mix together and its ready to go. Scrub over any rough skin and then rinse off under warm water. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

For the Dark Chocolate facial all you need is 2 ingredients.

1 tsp of Coconut Oil
2 TBS Dark Cocoa Powder

To curb your craving for sweets while letting this do its magic… try a few dates. They did the trick for me and they are packed with goodness. No guilt.

BTW this is a great treat for your mum. Who doesn’t love to be pampered!

Benefits:

Olive oil has many benefits. It is an anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, packed with antioxidants, and is amazing at moisturizing your skin. You can substitute any oil that works best for you, but I love olive oil.

Dark Cocoa Powder is full of antioxidants which help with skin repair. It helps firm skin and lessen fine lines and wrinkles. It helps protect the skin from UV and it helps gently exfoliate the delicate skin on your face.

Coconut Oil is fantastic. Besides smelling amazing it is an antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. It also goes deep into your skin to leave it soft and moisturized. It doesn’t leave your skin greasy and it reduces your risk of breakouts.

****Always test on a small section of your skin before you try elsewhere. Be sure you don’t have an aversion to these ingredients.****

    Assalamu’ alaikum I posted a comment on your first post if I’m not mistaken the ‘commversation Sunday ‘ entry and I haven’t received a reply. I have left comments and emails over the years about various things and have never received a reply. Do you only reply to comments directly related to your products ?
    Assalamu’ alaikum I hope this message teaches you in good health inshallah. X

      What was your question? I only saw a request for advice… My number one advice for business is believe in yourself and what your goals are. Stay true to that and you will never fail.
