If you're anything like me, sometimes you just need some chocolate in your life. It's not a want but a need. Now, I've moved from Cadburys to a dark, dairy-free variety. But it still gives me those warm, sweet, comforted feels that I had as a kid munching down Kit Kats. Why? Because of the cacao! Cacao is where all chocolate starts off. Before sugars and fats and processing, it’s just cacao. Cacao contains an amino acid called tryptophan that your brain uses to produce the neurotransmitter Serotonin, which can increase feelings of overall happiness. Serotonin is the feel-good chemical and influences your mood. So that’s why we crave it when we’re feeling down. Our body knows that it will get a hit of serotonin after munching on a choccy bar. So what does this have to do with skincare? Well I’m glad you asked. Cacao is a superfood that does amazing things for our body when eaten, but it also does amazing things when used topically. Have a read of the cacao/skin facts I gathered below.
