These attractive-looking DIY chocolate body scrub bars are perfect for your skin as we approach the chilly months.

However, they can be used at any time of the year if you don’t mind some coconut oil goodness occasionally.

The ingredients in this DIY chocolate scrub are similar to those in a brownie recipe.

It contains brown sugar, which gives brownies a fudgy center.

Thick coconut oil and unsweetened cocoa powder for a rich-tasting brownie.

Unfortunately, you can’t eat these, but your skin would enjoy them.

Though I didn’t add vanilla extract to mine, you can add a few drops to yours for an extra delicious aroma.

Also, feel free to create these scrub bars in any shape.

And wrap them up as handmade holiday gifts.

Just make sure to label them “Chocolate Body Scrub Bars.”

So your loved ones know exactly what they were meant for.

Let’s make them.

How to use your DIY chocolate body scrub bars

  • Before exfoliation, ensure your skin is clean to benefit from the products used.
  • Then apply this scrub just like a soap bar on clean damp skin.
  • The warmth from your skin would melt the coconut oil, making the product spread easily.
  • Then with gentle circular movements, exfoliate your whole body.
  • Let it sit for several minutes.
  • When you are ready, rinse off the scrub with lukewarm water.
  • Now don’t be tempted to grab a towel to dab off the water on your body.
  • There’s no need for that.
  • Allow the water droplets to evaporate on their own.
  • You only need to moisturize your elbows, knees, and feet with coconut oil or a moisturizer of your choice.

A few important things to look out for when using this DIY cocoa sugar scrub bars

  1. First and foremost, this scrub is not coarse or tough on the skin.
  2. I believe it has to do with the packed brown sugar tiny granules.
  3. So if you worry about sugar granules, don’t fret; you’re fine.
  4. This homemade chocolate sugar scrub is messy, though not as much as the DIY coffee sugar scrub.
  5. It may leave some stains on your bathtub or shower curtain. But nothing soap and water can’t remove.
  6. Also, these melt and apply easily to the skin, thanks to the heat from your body.
  7. Lastly, wash the tub or shower cubicle before leaving to prevent slipping.

5 Benefits of using DIY chocolate body scrub

Since cocoa powder is the main ingredient in this scrub, let’s discuss its benefits to the skin.

1. Skin exfoliation and hydration

Unsurprisingly, mixing cocoa powder with sugar removes dead skin.

And reveals smoother, more radiant skin.

Also, cocoa powder is rich in antioxidants, which help to hydrate and nourish your skin.

This makes it an excellent ingredient for a body scrub.

As it keeps your skin moisturized and healthy-looking.

2. Cocoa powder is rich in anti-aging properties

Cocoa powder is also packed with anti-aging properties that help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Giving your skin a more youthful look.

Also, the antioxidants in cocoa powder help slow down premature skin aging.

Plus, cocoa powder hydrates skin and improves its elasticity.

3. Using cocoa powder on the skin improves blood flow

The caffeine content in cocoa powder can help improve blood flow to the skin.

This can result in a healthier and more radiant complexion.

Also, the improved blood flow makes your skin renewed, less dry and glows naturally.

So, the next time you’re craving some chocolate, why not use cocoa powder on your skin too?

Your skin will thank you!

4. Cocoa powder also improves skin tone

Did you know that cocoa powder can improve your skin tone?

Yes, it’s true!

This delicious ingredient contains flavonoids that can help increase blood flow to the skin.

Which in turn improves its appearance.

Also, cocoa powder is rich in antioxidants.

Antioxidants help protect your skin from damage caused by pollution and sun rays.

This makes cocoa powder an excellent ingredient for a body scrub.

5. Cocoa powder improves relaxation

If you’re looking for a natural way to unwind after a long day, try using a body scrub that contains cocoa powder.

This delicious-smelling ingredient is known to help you relax and relieve stress.

Adding cocoa powder to your self-care routine allows you to create a spa-like experience in your home.

So, next time you’re stressed or anxious, whip up a DIY chocolate body scrub.

And let its soothing properties work their magic.
