On the internet, you will find many articles and much research about the benefits of the cacao being applied internally as well as externally for the whole body, including the skin.
The cacao bean is rich in magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, beta-carotene and omega 6 fatty acids and can protect the skin against environmental damage. Raw cacao feeds the skin and plays a powerful antioxidant role in slowing the aging process thanks to flavanols.
Applied externally, cacao visibly improves the skin’s texture, in addition to nourishing, rejuvenating and toning it. Cacao is also known as a calming, restorative and anti-inflammatory skin soother.
Topical application of raw cacao increases blood circulation, bringing additional nourishment and glow to the skin. Applying flavonoid-rich raw cacao provides repair, prevents additional damage, and supports healthy collagen.
Last but not least, are its aromatherapeutic properties thanks to the divine flavour of the cacao products!
You can use this mask base and add a cacao powder to it.
THIS IS WHAT I AM CALLING “THE SWIFT SKIN CARE”: you don’t need to have ten different masks; you just can have one base that will be modified according to your current needs.
