Get Your Valentine's Day Chocolate Fix Without the Calories

Get Your Valentine's Day Chocolate Fix Without the Calories

With Valentine's Day getting closer, you're probably already thinking about all the chocolate treats you're going to consume. But you can give your waistline guilt a break with this DIY chocolate soak recipe. Many spas, like the posh Spa Claremont at The Claremont Hotel Club and Spa in Berkeley, CA, have added chocolate-themed treatments into their Valentine's Day-themed packages. But while a cross-Atlantic trip might be a bit out of your budget, you can still try this sweet treat. Claremont's spa director, Stacey Parks, shows us how you can easily get a taste of this chocolate treatment at home.

Cocoa soak: It turns out the cocoa powder you get from the supermarket can be used for more than just baking. Stacey suggests blending together cocoa and water to create a softening, moisturising soak. When through, she recommends following it up with a short milk soak for the fingers and toes. "That's going to whiten your fingernails as well, so it has an aesthetic benefit to it, and it feels really good, too," she says. A little hand and foot massage afterward is a great way to finish.
