With Valentine’s Day behind us, you may be ready to refocus on your New Year’s Resolutions and to set the sweets aside again. Time to hit the gym, drink the water, eat the veggies, all that good-for-you stuff.
But then…chocolate. It can be so hard to leave the chocolate behind. Fortunately, science has your back on this one, and it turns out that chocolate is now a health food. Yay! When consumed in moderate amounts, this powerhouse product of the cocoa tree provides many benefits to your heart, skin, and brain. Native to the Amazon rainforest of South America, cocoa is actually one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet.
It Can Go On Your Face, Too!
If you are trying to cut back on your sugar intake, though, you don’t have to forgo chocolate altogether. As luck would have it, it’s fantastic when applied to your skin, too. Like, it’s really incredible. Here are the amazing benefits you can expect when you include chocolate-based products in your skincare routine:
- Antioxidants renew skin cells and reverse sun damage
- Magnesium and vitamin C protect the skin from further damage
- Vitamin E helps improve collagen production and elasticity
- Cocoa butter provides intense moisturizing
- Omega 6 fatty acids help heal scars and minimize wrinkles
