It is one of those wonderfully sensationalist debates that rages through health and beauty columns in a periodical attempt to reassure ourselves: is chocolate actually good for us? And in many respects it is – phew!
Aside from the reiterated assurances that it contains the antioxidant power ingredients – polyphenols, it is something that the vast majority of people enjoy (with broad speculation that women are the principle ambassadors to its cause) – and a very important part of your health rests on a sense of contentment – which is why it is totally justifiable to indulge a little in that box of Guylian chocolates Spabreaks.com gave you with your Valentine’s Day spa booking – plus the scientifically unfounded rumour that chocolate is an aphrodisiac makes for an entirely contemporaneous experiment.
Nonetheless, we are always trying to find other ways in which chocolate is beneficial to us, and proving that whatever form it takes the popular ingredient retains its indulgent status, it is becoming an ever more popular part of luxurious treatments offered by the likes of The Thames Club in Middlesex, The Vineyard at Stockcross, Harte & Garter in Windsor, and The Montcalm in London because of its skin softening properties, ability to help smooth out wrinkles, protection against free radicals, a generally nourishing effect (although we are pretty sure you shouldn’t use that as an excuse to make it a key dietary component) and its ability to hydrate the skin. Anyway, as if that wasn’t enough you will come away from your treatment smelling completely wonderful – good enough to eat in fact!
