I don't know about you but I am a sucker for a good, gooey, stick to your lips S'More. I also love chocolate so much I would literally bathe in hot chocolate (and I have seriously been thinking about it, but I think my husband might kill me if I fill the new jet tub with hot chocolate). Soooo ... I've discovered the next best thing to bathing in chocolate and covering my face with a gooey marshmallow face mask ...
...pampering products that are good enough to eat.
Cocoa has been a rising star in the beauty industry since about 2016 and is gaining popularity as we learn the amazing benefits it has for your skin. Such as the fact that cocoa powder contains more antioxidants than green tea! Antioxidants are the good little nutrients that keep our skin protected and help us to age SLOWER. Can you believe that chocolate does that?! Ummm ... hello ... let me roll around in a bag of it please.
Cocoa is also an anti-inflammatory and that means a lot for those of us that suffer from acne. Nothing is worse than a red, inflamed face, but slathering some chocolate on it makes it better! (in more ways than one) .
Does that not sound delicious? Of course it does! It's chocolate ... for your skin.
The even crazier and newest dessert like delectable ingredient is marshmallow root. Now, marshmallow root isn't the same thing as the gooey deliciousness we toast over the fire, but it is just as delicious for your skin. Traditionally marshmallow root has been used to treat burns and insect bites, but as we learn more about this incredible ingredient we are finding it has a host full of other benefits as well. Such as :
- It is great for sensitive skin , The anti-inflammatory properties make it a great choice for those that suffer with eczema or rosacea .
- It's a humectant which means it is highly moisturizing and actually draws moisture to the skin. Kind of like my beloved Manuka Honey , but more delicious ? Possibly? It's a toss up for me.
- It helps reduce fine lines! Say what?! Marshmallows reduce the appearance of aging? I can't even with this good news.
Marshmallow root also plays really nice with other ingredients so if you want to incorporate it into your routine you don't have to ditch your current regime, just choose a marshmallow product and add it in!
