We know the perfect way to celebrate National Milk Chocolate Day—at the spa of course!

Sunday is National Milk Chocolate Day! We won’t lie to you—we celebrate chocolate a little bit every day. We know that eating dark chocolate is great for you, because it is filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Milk chocolate is the neglected cousin when it comes to the health benefits involved with chocolate—but the value of milk chocolate should not be ignored! Milk chocolate contains flavonoids which help improve our heart’s functions. It also acts as a brain stimulant!

What’s even better for you than eating chocolate? Infusing it into your skincare regimen! The antioxidants help to smooth wrinkles, cocoa softens the skin and chocolate has a nourishing, hydrating effect. Happy National Milk Chocolate Day to us ;)!
