Have you ever thought that the way your taste buds love chocolate, there is a probability that your skin might love this indulgence too?

According to beauty experts, chocolate contains ‘Flavonols’ (a type of flavonoid) that helps skin look its best.

Flavonols are the antioxidants that help protect the skin from UV damage, fight free radicals and also increase blood flow. They also improve skin hydration and thickness.
