SKIN CARE USING CHOCOLATE:PART 2

As promised in my previous post here are a few DIY recipes with chocolate:
CHOCOLATE MASK FOR PEDICURE:

Take 3 spoons Cocoa and mix it with 2 scoops base cream or lotion. I prefer using a cold cream without any fragrance as I am allergetic to it.Add a few drops of honey.to get a thick consistency we need to add ground oatmeal or oats powder. It adds to the density. Add a few drops of glycerine too. Blend everything in a blender and it is ready to use. If you love the chocolaty smell, add chocolate fragrance oil.

CHOCOLATE WALNUT FOOT SCRUB :

To a quarter cup of brown sugar taken in a bowl, add walnut powder, cocoa/chocolate powder, cold cream and a few drops of oil. Your foot scrub is ready to use. Remove the dead cells right away with this mixture. You may even use apricots or hazel nuts instead of walnut.Just blend the ingredients together in a blender to make it.Oil should be added after all the other ingredients are mixed well.

If you don’t have any of these products other than chocolate, you can use a substitute 


COCOA POWDER DRY SHAMPOO:

To 5 teaspoons of cocoa powder; add 2 teaspoons of corn starch and 5 drops of your favourite essential oil. I personally like lemon and grape fruit EO.Our shampoo is ready.
CHOCOLATE BATH GEL:

Take gelatine in a heat resistant bowl with a mild shampoo and boil it. The gelatine should dissolve completely. Once it boils add chocolate powder and cocoa oil to it and then refrigerate the mixture for 4 hours before using it in the bath. Your bath gel is ready to use.

 Get 1 package of dark chocolate. Melt it and add 2 tbsp. Of vitamin E oil, cocoa/shea butter, cocoa powder, almond oil and half cup multani mitti or clay. Blend it and use the mask before you bath.
