It’s nearly Easter, lets indulge in some chocolate…

We love Chocolate in all forms. However it comes with a bad reputation withinin the world of beauty. Most of us believe that eating chocolate can make our skin oily and therfore more prone to acne. Yet many beauty treatments utilize chocolate, which can benefit the skin and make it more beautiful, in so many ways….
Chocolate is not only good to eat but is full of feel good chemicals including serotonin, which makes us happy, and phenylethylamine, the chemical released when we are in love. Chocolate is packed with vitamin B, potassium, magnesium, zinc and calcium. Dark chocolate also contains iron

Chocolate is a powerful antioxidant, which can help slow the skin’s natural aging process from the inside out.  Dark chocolate is at the top of the antioxidant list, more than what is found in foods like blueberries, grapes and almonds. This means that dark chocolate is one of the most powerful and useful weapons in the fight against aging skin. It can reduce wrinkles and age spots and also improve skin elasticity and reduces cellulite.
Chocolate Moisturizes Your Skin
Chocolate moisturizes dry skin. This is most likely because it contains cocoa butter, a known skin moisturizer. It can also soften dead skin cells and make them easy to remove during exfoliation. This allows new, young and healthy skin cells to grow in their place. Moisturized skin not only looks better and healthier than dry skin, but it is also more elastic, which means fewer wrinkles. Skin can be moisturized internally by ingesting small amounts of dark chocolate daily, or externally with skin products that contain chocolate as a moisturizing ingredient.
Chocolate Facial Mask At Home
You can treat your skin at home with a homemade chocolate facial mask. It is recommended to mix 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 3 tbsp. heavy cream, 2 tsp. cottage cheese, ¼ cup honey and 3 tsp. oatmeal. Apply the mixture to the face for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. The creamy mask is an excellent moisturizer that leaves skin ” baby soft.” This mask is recommended for normal skin (neither too dry nor too oily) without major conditions such as severe acne.
