Why Dark Chocolate is good for you

Eating for beauty doesn’t mean a lifetime sentence of salad, although leafy greens do wonders for your looks! Why not indulge in the ultimate chocolate treat and reap some beauty and health rewards while you’re at it? Now don’t go and run off and buy the first chocolates you can get your hands on.

Dark chocolate is among the countless derivatives of cacao beans. It tastes a little bitter and not very popular among many people. But it has many health and beauty benefits to offer which makes it more preferable than the regular varieties of chocolate.


Are you a chocolate lover? Well here is a list of benefits you get from dark chocolate:

  • Dark chocolate hosts a range of potent antioxidants that free your skin from radical damage and keeps your skin soft, healthy and glowing flawlessly.
  • When you consume dark chocolate on a regular basis, it will help you achieve a smooth, problem free complexion and also help keep your skin moist and well nourished.
  • A Cocoa mask is a unique mask which rejuvenates the skin by means of its active ingredients. It slows down the ageing process; it firms the skin and prevents wrinkle formulation, because of the moisturising properties.
  • Boast stress-relieving qualities and work wonders in getting you a glowing skin by reducing elevated stress hormones.

So on your next trip to the grocery store make sure to add dark chocolate onto your shopping list and don’t forget that chocolate has to contain 70 percent of Cocoa. For a more relaxing chocolate benefit, visit you nearest Placecol Skin Care Clinic and book for a Rejuvenating Cocoa Mask.
