We all know how tempting, delicious and aromatic this amazing treat can be, but did you know how wonderful it can be for your skin?
The love of Chocolate has a long history. With it's beginnings in South America with the Mayan Indians, the Inca's of Peru and the Aztecs of Mexico - trade of this valuable bean flourished so much so, that it became a unit of currency. A pumpkin cost about four cocoa nibs while a 'tolerably good' slave cost up to one hundred!!
Good quality Chocolate is rich in antioxdants (comparable to that of Green Tea) that helps our skin renew and repair cellular damage.
It helps to soften skin due to the rich effects of Cocoa Butter and Chocolate can aid in smoothing and exfoliating the skin as well as softening the signs of ageing. But most importantly, it smells so good!!
