Blog: Dean BestFed up with wrinkles? Eat more chocolate!

Dean Best | 24 April 2008

just-food is at the Biscuit Cake Chocolate and Confectionery Conference in the UK town of Rugby today (24 April).

Our reporter Michelle Russell has uncovered some stats sure to cheer the hearts of many a chocolate-loving woman...

Is it no wonder women love chocolate so much?

Not only does it release those special endorphins to help us through stressful and depressing moments all women have come to experience, but, according to new research, cocoa can now improve the texture of our skin.

According to research carried out by Swiss chocolate maker Barry Callebaut, cocoa consumption over a 12-week period improved the skin quality and smoothness of those tested by 12% as well as reducing the width (-1%) and volume (-4%) of wrinkles.

So instead of pasting chocolate on our faces and bodies in a bid to look good, we can now fully release that temptation and chomp away to our hearts content.

All us women will now have to consider is whether we’ll be happy to be considered clinically obese or whether we want to wave goodbye to flawless skin forever.

Although, with the main theme of the Biscuit Cake Chocolate and Confectionery Conference in Rugby today (24 April) focusing on portion control, I think that decision may already have been made for us.
