Let’s be frank - most skin supplements taste horrendous. We’ll pretty much give anything a go for flawless skin, but taking your daily supplement can be about as exciting as a dental appointment.
Until, that is, your skin supplements just happen to be in chocolate form. Enter Esthechoc, a 21-day supply of individually wrapped chocolate squares that are actually very, very good for your skin. Got a sweet tooth? Read on…
Hold on, how come it’s so good for your skin?
Cocoa is actually good for you as it’s rich in antioxidants, but when you add the sugar and fat, it becomes calorific. You’d need to consume about 500 calories worth of super bitter 90% cocoa dark chocolate to actually reap the benefits. So sadly, a Kit Kat won’t cut it. Esthechoc are daily pieces of high-in-cocoa chocolates with all the goodness, minus the calories (38 calories per piece, in fact). The reason why they’re a supplement? They contain two key ingredients:
Astaxanthin: In a nutshell, it’s a super strength anti-immflamatory (6000x stronger than vitamin C) and works by providing anti-oxidant protection and preventing UV damage.
Cocoa Polyphenolic Epicatechins: These polyphenols fast track the delivery of oxygen to your skin’s tissue. Much like opting for the express delivery rather than standard delivery on your Zara order.
Both of these are digested easily by the body, meaning they reach your skin tissue quickly and perform fast. You should start to see your skin improve in about 3 weeks.
What are the effects?
Improved circulation, antioxidant protection and reduced inflammation mean that your skin will glow from the inside out. In three weeks, testers reported less dryness, improved broken capillaries, better skin elasticity and softening of wrinkles. Not bad for popping a choc.
Does it taste nice?
Yup. Although if you’re usually accustomed to milk chocolate treats, the 72% cocoa value might take a bit of getting used to. But hey, it is chocolate, and it’ll curb those inevitable 11am/4pm cravings. Oh, they’re also vegan and vegetarian friendly too. Hoorah!
Three cheers for the chocolate diet!
