The next time you have a chocolate craving, you may consider heading to the spa rather than the corner store. Heres why:

 

It is said that the polyphenols found in cocoa actually delay the ageing process, leaving skin looking younger and even plumped up with fewer visible wrinkles from the lipids in the cocoa treatment. Another key benefit of cocoa is its detoxifying properties. This is why it is essential for a cocoa wrap to incorporate an element of heat. But lets admit it – aside from all these benefits, the true draw of the chocolate body wrap is the divine fragrance. And for good reason – the smell of chocolate actually releases endorphins in the brain, elevating your mood.


Three international chocolate treatments:


The Ritz-Carlton, Doha – The Choco cocoa Heaven

One of the signature journeys at this acclaimed spa, this treatment prepares the skin with a choco body polish before the truly heavenly (as the name would suggest) fondant wrap. It even includes a 30-minute massage.

 

The Spa at Hotel Hershey, Hershey, Pennsylvania Chocolate Fondue Wrap

As it turns out, the makers of the iconic US chocolate take their spa treatments very seriously. This treatment, which uses a special formula comprising warmed moor mud and essence of cocoa, revitalises and nourishes the skin as it relaxes the body. This treatment is followed with a body brushing and a Vichy Shower rinse.

 

The Montcalm, London – Chocolate Body Wrap

It all starts with a powerful skin-recharging full-body exfoliation therapy that integrates frangipani and ylang ylang oils combined with sea salt to cleanse and purify. A warm layer of chocolate is then applied all over the body, and rinsed off leaving the muscles and skin rejuvenated.
