Chocolate – not just for eating
Mediterranean beauties love dark chocolate.

Italian women not only eat (in moderation) chocolate, but also like to undergo extraordinary massages with hot chocolate – at home as well as in professional beauty salons.
Such treatments are called “youth antidote” because the valuable properties of cocoa beans nourish and regenerate tired skin and improve microcirculation. This is due to the fact that cocoa beans are rich in caffeine, which stimulates blood circulation and, which for many ladies will certainly be great news, accelerates fat burning.
