According to one study, you can apparently stave off wrinkles by drinking cocoa. It's some of the best news I’ve heard in a long time and it comes to us straight from the Journal of Nutrition. Apparently, consuming cocoa, which contains something called flavanols, improves skin texture, mainly, its density, thickness, roughness, and scaling. According to the JON article, skin’s hydration was also improved and skin water loss is decreased.
The study shows that regular consumption of a beverage rich in flavanols can help maintain skin health by improving skin structure and function.
Doesn't mention anything about weight gain ....
So would you trade in your morning cup of java for a cup of cocoa if it meant better skin?
