Oh yeah, we went there. Your favorite little indulgence is about to work wonders on your skin.
Turns out, chocolate is more than just an instant mood enhancer. In addition to being packed with a whole alphabet of vitamins, the sweet stuff has flavonoids - special antioxidants - which can help protect against UV rays, encourage the flow of blood under the skin, and decrease signs of aging. For double the chocolate power, we threw in cacao nibs (those would be roasted pieces of cacao beans) to scrub away dead skin cells, and a heaping handful of cocoa butter to instantly smooth you out all over. Of course, a dash of brown sugar, coconut oil, and almond oil all conspire to impart plenty of moisture - and make you smell like freshly baked cookie. Major bonus in our book.
