A Few More Reasons Chocolate Is Good For the Skin

A Few More Reasons to Love Chocolate

Chocolate is pretty much synonymous with Valentine's Day. And while you can check out YumSugar for ways to ingest it, here on Team Bella we like to explore ways to slather it all over our bodies. When it comes to using this decadent ingredient in spa and body treatments, it turns out there are several great reasons why chocolate is so sweet.

Stacey Parks, spa director at Spa Claremont in Berkeley, CA, explains, "Chocolate induces a euphoric feeling on an emotional level, so it just makes you feel really good, and it nurtures your well-being as well as your body." That's not it, though. "Chocolate is antioxidant, and the darker the chocolate the better, because it does help to boost the body's natural collagen production," she adds. If you just happen to be in the Bay Area, treat yourself to a chocolate manicure or pedicure at the Claremont. Or, for something you can do at home, this quick and easy DIY cocoa soak is perfection.
