Did you know that cocoa in its purest form is packed with vitamins and minerals – especially zinc, iron, magnesium and copper – all of which repair skin, aid hair growth and even boost energy levels. But the real pièce de résistance is its anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties.
Yep, chocolate helps rejuvenate, soften and protect skin whilst fighting off harmful free radicals and giving your complexion a healthy lit-from-within glow, so it’s good for both health and looks. Win, win.
