My name is chocolate, I am 4.000 years old, I was born in Mesoamerica which is now present day Mexico that converted the cacao plant into chocolate.
Benefits of chocolate
1. We’ve all heard that chocolate is high in antioxidants, but did you know these antioxidants help it fight against free radicals- the culprits of skin aging.
By applying a chocolate face or body mask, the skin is much smoother, with a healthy and rejuvenated appearance. Chocolate is made of solid fats that assist the skin, allowing it to provide a fuller, plumper appearance. This is a natural and economical way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and skin inflammation
2.- Many people claim that chocolate causes them to break out, but did you know chocolate can help fight acne. As mentioned above, cocoa helps fight skin inflammation, which is why its use is ideal for irritated, inflamed or acne-prone skin.
3.- Increases face and body circulation. Therefore, applying chocolate to the skin will make it look smoother. On the face, it helps to smooth wrinkles and on the rest of the body it hides the presence of marks, stretch marks, etc
Disadvantages of Chocolate
A.- Chocolate has many advantages which we have discussed above, but there are of course some disadvantages as well.
B.- High calories, which can lead to several health concerns. This is why we recommend healthier, premium chocolate.
C.- High sugar content- there’s a reason for those high calories, it has high level of sugar, which leads to a wide range of problems.
D.- One major problem is that it can be very addictive, mainly due to the high sugar content, but also due to the chemicals it releases in our brains.
