Cocao powder is rich in antioxidants and helps give you smooth and healthy skin. Cocao powder not only contains lots of minerals like calcium, potassium, and zinc, but it also contains high levels of caffeine and theobromine which help firm skin cells, tighten skin and reduce puffiness. Cocao powder helps to renew skin cells, promote healthy skin tissues and promote healthy cell development.
Cocoa powder is a great natural exfoliant. It helps improve blood which results in a more youthful glow. The gentle exfoliation is particularly good for those with acne-prone skin.
A simple mask of cocoa powder and water can add a youthful glow, moisturize your skin and prevent blemishes. Cocao powder masks can be made by mixing cocoa powder with yogurt, olive oil, water, or honey. Choose ingredients, mix together and apply directly on washed skin. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
You can also make a scrub by mixing the mask ingredients with ground oatmeal or brown sugar to get rid of dead skin.
In hair care, cocoa powder helps moisturize, soften, and smooth hair and promotes shinier.
