No argument: what we ingest shows up on skin. Drink lots of water, eat a low-sugar, low-fat diet of foods rich in antioxidants and omegas 3 and 6, and watch your skin glow with health.
Chocolate isn't usually on that list of give-skin-a-glow edibles, not unless you're using it -- ahem -- creatively. Genuine Health has gone a different creative route with the launch of Healthy Skin Chocolate Soft Chews, aiming to satisfy your sweet-tooth and sweet-skin cravings at the same time.
One of the most potent antioxidants in the Soft Chews is cacao-seed extract, which boosts skin elasticity and hydration, reduces roughness, and can help skin bounce back a little better from sun irritation and damage. Other antioxidants such as lycopene and vitamins C, E and B2 are in the mix too. So is fish collagen extract, which supplies similar-to-human collagen building blocks to improve tone.
Three chews is a day's dosage and clocks in at 70 calories. They don't taste like a melty chocolate bar or your favourite sinful choco treat I'm sure, but as far as chocolate-toffee flavours go, Healthy Skin Chews are soft, chocolatey and, yes, tasty, enough to satisfy a not-too-sweet treat craving.
