A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found women who consumed 320 milligrams of cocoa flavanols daily saw decreases in skin roughness, as well as improvements in skin elasticity and facial wrinkles.
The researchers believe the antioxidants found in cocoa were responsible for these benefits.
