Chocolate Again

If you happen to drop by here a few weeks ago, there was an article about chocolate and its health benefits. Once again, I'm writing another benefit from the yummy treat.

When I was in my teens, I used to have a lot of pimples and they used to tell me chocolate was the culprit. Now I hear dark chocolate is considered a health food and it contains powerful antioxidants properties which makes it good for the heart and the SKIN. That's unfair! I refrained myself from eating my favorite food because of my pimples, then. [hehe]

Chocolate treatments have become a craze lately and have been found to soften skin. And because of its antioxidant properties, it is also used to smooth wrinkles. Based on a study, women who consumed cocoa powder or dark chocolate for 3 months have lessened their plump [the layer of fat under their facial skin] by 12%, smoothing out fine lines. The reason for this? The flavonols found in chocolate increased nourishing blood flow to the skin.
