Coffee And Cocoa Facial Mask

Cocoa And Coffee Facial Mask Recipe

This is a Cocoa And Coffee Facial Mask Recipe you can make at home - it's one of those inexpensive DIY ideas that helps you feel like a million dollars!

I know how much I love the aroma of fresh ground coffee and I adore the taste of a rich chocolate. Well, okay, who doesn't love those two things? Some people say that chocolate isn't good for you, but come on, cocoa grows on trees, so it's counts as salad! I think I got my point across, right?

Even more than how delicious cocoa is, there are a lot of health benefits we can get from it. Those benefits help us internally and externally as well. Cocoa contains antioxidants and we all know how they fight free radicals and help us keep younger looking. It is said that cocoa has anti-aging and rejuvenation properties.

Cocoa, in it's raw state, has several compounds that contribute to the well being of the body.

  • Arginine is a natural aphrodisiac
  • Anandamide is a substance that causes a state of euphoria
  • Tryptophan serves as an antidepressant, and it has certain neurotransmitters that stimulate and balance the brain activity.
  • Epicatecina-galato, a compound found in cocoa, actually a flavanol, helps to increase the relaxation capacity of the blood vessels. This is also found in red wine, green tea and grapefruit juice, and as of late, these things have been recommended in moderation for the prevention of heart disease and keeping cholesterol under control.
  • Magnesium is another ingredient found in cocoa. Magnesium helps our heart to more efficiently pump blood. It helps to strengthen our bones and it also can help to lower our blood pressure. I wonder if it's because of the magnesium, a mineral with calming properties, that a craving for chocolate is such a common event among women when they have their periods.

And what about coffee? Coffee is also good for your skin, did you know that?

  • Coffee is another source of antioxidants.
  • Coffee soothes your skin.
  • It can protect against the suns rays.
  • Coffee also can help to increase your blood's circulation.
