Chocolate is actually good for the skin. You may have heard that chocolate can cause the skin to break out. It is not the chocolate that is causing the skin to break out, but the sugar and processed dairy that it sometimes contains. While I love eating chocolate (see recipes below), I also love to occasionally apply in on my skin in the form of a chocolate sugar scrub. Yes, you can use the sugar to scrub your skin just limit how much you eat!
Chocolate Sugar Scrub Recipe
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 TBS raw cocoa powder
1/3 cup sugar
Melt coconut oil in a double boiler. I like to put a glass pyrex container in a pan of water on low heat until the coconut oil melts.
In a bowl mix the sugar and cocoa powder together. Pour the melted coconut oil over the sugar/cocoa mixture. Save in an empty jar with lid. To use, rub all over face and hands. Leave on for a few minutes and rinse. This will be a luxurious spa like experience and is great for facial parties.
