In our office mostly full of women, as you might imagine there are a lot of sugar cravings going around at 3 pm. But as an office full of women who live and breathe health-related journalism, we’re always looking for ways to justify our snacking. "Chocolate’s good for the soul" is a common refrain around here.
The folks at Genuine Health have made our lives a little easier with their brand-new Healthy Skin Chocolate Soft Chews ($24.99/45 chews). A little more Tootsie Roll than chocolate, they’re nevertheless pretty addictive and as we eat them, we think about how beautiful they’re making our skin at the same time. After all, a day’s serving of three chews contains just 70 calories and skin-beautifying ingredients like cocoa seed extract (improves skin hydration, thickness and elasticity), hydrolyzed collagen (a fish extract that’s meant to prevent signs of aging) plus vitamin C, lycopene and other goodies.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go improve my skin.
