Chocolate has gotten a bad rap when it comes to skincare and acne. But in recent years, the tides have turned. People are now recognizing the power of antioxidants and minerals in chocolate, and what chocolate skincare can do for your skin.
Minerals and antioxidants in chocolate make this treat a fantastic ingredient to improve your skin. It’ll help reduce the signs of aging, brighten the skin, and provide an indulgent treat as you take care of your skin.
What’s in Chocolate Skincare and How it Helps the Skin?
The minerals commonly found in cacao (like magnesium, potassium, and iron) help to lessen the look of wrinkles, brighten skin and lessen redness.
Theobromine is similar to caffeine, and the dark chocolate used in skincare products is rich in the chemical compound. It is the active ingredient in cacao. It has been shown to expand blood vessels, reducing blood pressure and improving circulation.
Magnesium can help to reduce the oiliness of one’s skin and reduce redness from rosacea. It also lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which, when elevated for too long (or too often) can cause collagen to harden. What this means is that lines and wrinkles are more visible when you’re stressed.
The various vitamins in cacao, like vitamins A and E, thiamin (also known as vitamin B1) and calcium provide nourishment and boost the protection ability of your skin. Vitamin A helps to reduce signs of aging, while vitamin E plays a role in moisturizing your skin. Thiamin helps to reduce stress by calming the nerves in the skin and body.
Cocoage beauty products contain high levels of cacao and other ingredients that are meant to provide a luxurious experience while beautifying your skin. Cacao Seed Extract is one of those key ingredients. It works hard to deflect free radicals and protect the skin from environmental damage.
