Raw cacao and its sky rocketing amounts of amazing antioxidants are what make raw cacao contribute to super skin. Collagen, found naturally in our skin, decreases as we age eventually leading to droopy and weathered skin. The aging process can also sped up by environmental pollutants, free radicals, and damage from the natural sun in todays busy world. The good news is that natural flavonoids, an antioxidant, found in Cacao helps to protect collagen in the skin, helping to slow down the aging process. These same flavonoids also improve skins appearance and texture by increasing blood flow to the skin, delivering healthy beneficial nutrients faster while decreasing the skins sensitivity to light, helping to protect our skin from harmful UV rays.
These fantastic flavonoids along with a substantial amount of natural sulphur found in cacao, have also been shown to improve skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and even acne. Increased blood flow to the skin from cacao’s large antioxidant content results in better delivery of nutrients and the removal of nasty toxins from the blood, expelling them for good from the body. For those who may currently suffer with acne or oily skin, don’t fear - cacao can aid and benefit your skin too. Cacao aids your skin to help reduce overly oily production by gently and slowly drying it out. Its antimicrobial properties may help reduce inflammation, so those pores won’t become blocked and those unsightly and unwanted pimples will slowly dry away. Toss or sprinkle raw cacao into homemade baked goods, smoothies, oatmeal or simply eat on its own and start to notice a difference in your skin with cacao’s super-cleansing content!
