Clinical research has suggested that chocolate has significant health benefits as part of your diet, and also on your skin.
It’s true, chocolate, especially the dark chocolate variety is high in antioxidants and is shown to lower both blood pressure and cholesterol. It also contains serotonin and stimulates endorphins — both which act as natural anti-depressants.
Experts are now saying that applying chocolate facial treatment can also have benefits to your face. Cacao, also known as Cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate bars, is high in antioxidants and increases the firmness of your skin. These same antioxidants can help retain your skin moisture, leaving your skin feeling hydrated and smooth. Chocolate also absorbs skin-damaging free radicals, removing signs of oxidative stress from the surface of your skin.
So go ahead and treat yourself to some chocolate!
