Chocolate Day is celebrated as the third day of the Valentine week. Just like roses, chocolates too are an epitome of love and affection. The bittersweet taste of the chocolate, and the one gifted from your loved one will definitely make you feel extra special on Chocolate Day. Gifting chocolates alone is too passé. Explore your relationship by spending a day out in a salon or spa, getting a chocolate massage or facial done. It will not only be relaxing and rejuvenating, but you can also spend quality time as a couple. Chocolate has been incorporated all over the world, from cosmetics to massages and facials.
Benefits of Chocolate Massage
Firm skin: Ingredients in chocolate have high anti-oxidant and moisturising properties. Not only does it help in keeping your skin firm, but will also leave it soft and supple. Chocolate is responsible to improve the texture of the skin, thus giving you that anti-ageing glow.
Moisturises: When the natural oils found in cocoa are combined with other traditional oils like safflower and olive oils, it further seeps deep within your skin leaving it moisturised for a longer time. Chocolate massages combat the roughness of dry skin and rough patches especially on elbows, knees and soles.
Psychological benefits: The aroma of chocolate acts as an anti-depressant quality. It relieves a relaxing and ecstatic sensation, and releases the ‘feel-good’ hormone from your brains. It helps in releasing the stress and gives you a peace of mind.
