Are you a chocolate lover? When it comes to chocolate, overdoing it isn’t exactly the best thing for your teeth or your waistline.
Luckily there are other ways to get your chocolate fix without the guilt – chocolate face masks and chocolate facials! That’s right; chocolate can be very beneficial for your skin. Read below as we share what chocolate can do for your skin and a healthy (yes HEALTHY) chocolate recipe that you can enjoy!
The Skin Benefits of Chocolate
Before we discuss the benefits of chocolate, let’s get one thing straight – we’re not suggesting you put a melted chocolate bar or chocolate ice cream on your face. These food products are mixed with other ingredients not recommended for use on the skin. The “good chocolate” we’re referring to is organic cocoa powder, the main component of all of your favorite chocolate foods.
Why do we love organic cocoa powder for your skin? Here are the reasons:
- Cocoa powder is packed with vitamins and minerals that nourish skin.
- Cocoa powder helps to improve the skin’s texture and elasticity.
- Cocoa powder helps provide hydration and improves the complexion.
Especially if your skin gets dry during the fall and winter months, chocolate can be just what your skin needs to feel smooth and soft again!
