Chocolate treatment

With Valentine’s Day next week, the world’s on a chocolate high and spas are right there with it. In case you missed it yesterday, Stephanie blogged all the benefits of chocolate in her chocolaty spa-dventure. In the name of glowing skin, she slathered her face in a (decidedly man-repelling) mask of cocoa powder, sour cream, honey and oatmeal – and it worked! Chocolate is packed with antioxidants and promotes cell growth, tissue repair and absorption of nutrients – the perfect combination of properties to nurture your skin and body.

We’ve got chocolate spa deals across North America this February, and we’ve paired each one with a recommendation on where to get your edible chocolate fix nearby. Eat your hearts out, sweetie pies!
