Another reason why chocolate is awesome: it not only makes you feel better, but it can also make you look better.

Dark chocolate is a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals (slowing down the aging process). It also contains a high level of flavonoids, which keep the heart healthy. Most recently, German researchers have found dark chocolate to even decrease the damaging effects of UV rays, making it a covetable sunscreen.

While it's argued whether topical cocoa-infused products (like Ikove's Acai Chocolate Shampoo) carry these same benefits, the comforting smell of chocolate itself is worth the treat -- just try Nutra-Lift's White Chocolate Body Butter and prepare to hold yourself back from licking it.
