3 delicious chocolate recipes for your skin and health

Posted by on

Chocolate has been around for centuries. The Mayans had used cocoa beans as their currency and even worshiped a cocoa god. We, modern-days people, love chocolate because it’s a delish sweet treat, a mood-lifter and a perfect guilt-free snack!

Containing minerals and antioxidants such as flanovoids, chocolate (without too much sugar) helps improving skin complexion, reducing stress level, promoting blood circulation, preventing aging and fighting against free radicals.
