Who doesn't love Chocolate?
However, make it dark chocolate to get some skin benefits!
Dark chocolate is my favorite! I use it in a variety of my cakes, cookies and my granola! The rich taste is so good! I love it plain as well!
If you like Dark Chocolate it is a #winwin for you! Do you know that cocoa has some pretty great effects on your skincare? Now you really have a reason to eat more chocolate! But, make sure it is the high antioxidant dark chocolate. Eating 20 grams of the high-antioxidant dark chocolate per day could allow your skin to withstand over twice as much UV radiation before burning versus eating low-antioxidant chocolate.
Participants in a recent study that consumed cocoa powder high in antioxidants each day, experienced thicker, more hydrated skin over a 6-12 week period. The skin was less rough, less sensitive to sunburn and had better blood flow.
Make sure to choose dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa in order to maximize the benefits and keep added sugar to a minimum. Give it a try! The more you start eating dark chocolate, you might find yourself weaning off the fatty milk chocolate all together!
