1. Chocolate Facial
Indulge in the sinfully sweet chocolate goodness as it is expertly applied to your face with delicate brush-like strokes to ensure that no morsel of chocolate goes unused. While we are all quite familiar with the traditional facial, the chocolate variety is not only a delicious indulgence, but the antioxidants in the chocolate work wonders on the skin and pores. Dark chocolate is best for this procedure because, as has been well documented, dark chocolate is used for a variety of non food-related instances due to just how beneficial it is. One of the best things about the chocolate facial is that it is the perfect time to introduce your daughter or other special little girl in your life to the wonders of grooming. Seeing that the chocolate facial is made from natural ingredients and edible, little girls will love going to the spa and doing what Mommy does while enjoying the taste of a sweet treat. Also, the after effects of the chocolate facial are wondrous; “baby soft” skin, brighter complexion and minimizing the size of pores. After an hour or so of such extreme pampering, this will become a welcomed new addiction.
2. Chocolate Manicure
Say sayonara to brittle cuticles, ragged nail beds, rough hands and hard to manage nails because the chocolate manicure is here to wipe away all your nail blues leaving your hands feeling smooth as silk, or in this case chocolate. There are a couple of ways to experience a chocolate manicure, you can have you hands totally submerged in the gooey stuff and then wrapped in plastic or it can be applied delicately in strokes using a brush. The way that it’s applied seems to vary based on spa location, but it doesn’t really matter because the outcome is the same…ridiculously soft hands that were made to be touched. Like any other manicure, the chocolate kind also caters to the spots on the hand that receive the most abuse on a regular basis; I’m speaking of the nails and cuticles. Chocolate is so rich and luxurious that it is the perfect component to combat dry, winter-ravaged hands and nails, plus it will give you an excuse to indulge in chocolate without the guilt of calories. With this treatment, the prospects of handholding just skyrocketed!
3. Chocolate Pedicure
Our feet take a lot of abuse. I mean, just think, they carry us daily everywhere we go and sometimes we forget to properly take care of them and pamper them for all of the hard work they put in. Pedicures are essential for everyone, but especially for women because if you want those five and six-inch stilettos to be at least somewhat comfortable, you must get a pedicure and tend to the calluses, corns and dead skin that are the cause of many women forgoing their shoes by the end of the workday or night on the town. Now, a pedicure is always an enjoyable and relaxing experience, but when you combine it with chocolate, it becomes one of the world’s hidden heavenly pleasures that beg to become a regular fixture in your grooming schedule. As with previous entries, there a varying ways of administering the chocolate pedicure, you can soak feet in chocolate and then have them wrapped in plastic or have the chocolate applied gradually using a brush. The result are feet that are silky (and chocolaty) smooth and ready for a long night of dancing wearing the highest heels you can find. Besides, having feet that smell like the world’s most decadent dessert is one of the best things ever.
4. Chocolate Massage
Let all the stress of a trying work week, screaming kids, tiffs with your significant other and endless traffic melt away as you strip down and enjoy the delicious aroma of chocolate as it is applied to your body prepping you for the massage of a lifetime. Yes, that’s what it’s like when you have a chocolate massage, every care in the world is gone and your mind becomes completely clear, well at least until you leave the massage table. The chocolate is applied to your shoulders, nape, upper and lower back with a small brush and then massaged in. While all massage styles are welcomed (deep tissue, hot stone, etc.) a traditional massage without all the frills really gets the job done and keeps the focus on the amazing benefits of the chocolate. As it is massaged into your skin it is getting to those tight muscles, but also leaving the skin supple and smooth. The antioxidants of the chocolate help release the toxins in your body that cause tension buildup and stress. Once the chocolate massage is done you will feel like new money and your skin will smell, look and feel good enough to eat!
5. Chocolate Soak
The idea of a chocolate soak brings to mind the experience of a mud bath, you luxuriate in a tub filled with a warm brown substance and let its natural benefits work wonders on your skin. Well they aren’t exactly the same because soaking in chocolate is so much better! There are few things in the world of pampering and grooming that are better than relaxing in a tub of delicious chocolate with your eyes closed and soft music playing in the background. Yes, sign me up because I think I could become addicted to this really fast. After you soak for an hour or so, you are then instructed to rinse the sweetness away, but what remains is super smooth skin that will have you anxious to break out the spaghetti straps in the dead of winter.
