Food treats for stunning Skin
By Abbie Kozolchyk for completely You
Ciocolată. Nuts. Cafea. Zahăr. Sare. If we were playing “The $20,000 Pyramid” ideal now, you might reasonably guess, “Things that are good for you in moderation.”
Răspuns greșit. The truth is, there’s nothing remotely moderate about, say, being covered then cocooned in molten chocolate. Yet this increasingly common day spa treatment couldn’t be better for you: think radiant, smooth, absurdly soft skin — to say nothing of chocolate’s antioxidant and anti-irritant properties.
Point is, no matter what the ingestible versions of these treats do to your weight, blood pressure or bone density, the topical versions induce zero guilt — and severe appeal benefits. and some of these mesmerizing goodies even offer teeth-enhancing benefits if you do choose to please your taste buds. So it’s certainly time to indulge.
ChocolateLet’s start with the granddaddy of all treats (or great-great-great-granddaddy, if you consider the millennium-traversing history of chocolate consumption in Mesoamerica). “Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, which can help reverse free-radical damage,” says new York City dermatologist Doris Day. “In addition, the inherent caffeine content has anti-irritant properties.” for this reason cacao’s ever-increasing presence in body butters, balms and lotions.
But this treat is best served warm and liquid, massaged into your limbs, back and torso at a spa. One delicious interpretation is the chocolate Experience at the Marquis Los Cabos resort in Baja California, Mexico. The highlight of this 80-minute treatment is a peppermint-infused chocolate envelopment that promises to increase endorphins.

Can’t get South of the Border? Slather on a cocoa-infused body butter after a warm shower to enhance absorption.
CoffeeCaffeine in coffee beans relieves skin irritation, just like chocolate. but coffee beans’ primary benefit to your skin is exfoliation — at least when they’re ground up and massaged on to your extremities, notes Day.
The a lot of indulgent variation on the theme? The Xocol-Ha wrap and Coffee Scrub at the day spa at Grand Velas Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, where Veracruz-grown beans are ground to skin-stimulating perfection.
At home, look for natural scrubs featuring coffee extracts. Or make your own: combine 2 cups of coarsely ground coffee, 1/2 cup of cup raw sugar or sea salt, and 3 teaspoons of massage oil. Rub it across your body in circular motions to stimulate blood flow.
Sugar and SaltSugar and salt are exceptional exfoliants, but the sweet stuff is better for sensitive-skinned people. “It simply dissolves as you scrub,” according to Day.
Salt treatments, by contrast, can dry you out, and are consequently good for oily or acne-prone skin. Psoriasis sufferers can benefit from salt as well. “Simply — and gently — working some coarse sea salt over pre-moistened skin in the shower must help,” says Day.
For a far girlier take on getting gritty, check out the Magnolia Sugar Scrub at the day spa at the Ritz-Carlton, new Orleans, where the granules in question are bathed in magnolia essence and various botanicals. Drug-store brand sugar scrubs can be used daily in your own shower for similar benefits at a little less indulgence.

Nuts“Nut extracts can be very hydrating to the skin,” says Day. Macadamia and almond — two of the most easily absorbed nuts — figure into lots of scrumptious skin treatments. One standout is the Ho’ala (renewing) service at the four seasons Maui, where your limbs are plied with a macadamia- and sweet almond-infused lavender body butter, among other delicacies.
At home, look for lotions or, if you have dry hair, conditioners that consist of nut extracts. For a DYI take on conditioner, combine 3 ounces almond oil with 2 ounces olive oil and five drops of lavender oil in a bottle. Shake until the ingredients are well blended. before you shampoo, apply as much of the mixture as needed to coat your haIR de la mijlocul catenei în jos. După cinci până la 10 minute, fără a umezi părul, aplicați șampon direct pe păr pentru a rupe tratamentul. În cele din urmă, adăugați apă, suferiți -vă și urmați cu balsamul normal. Repetați săptămânal sau de două ori pe săptămână în caz de șuvițe grav.
