The benefits of cacao extend beyond just eating it. Applying cacao to skin topically has it's own perks, including a boost of antioxidants which promote collagen production and reduce free-radical damage. It can also reduce redness due to  anti-inflammatory properties found in cacao! To read more about the benefits of cacao for beautiful skin, find the Journal of Nutrition study here

After using many different masks, we decided to try our own with ChocoVivo cacao powder . The recipe is super easy, check it out below!
