Dr. Agnes is the founder of AcnEase, a unique provider of alternative and complementary health care solutions in the U.S and global marketplace. According to Dr. Agnes, scientists have found that cocoa can contain more antioxidants per cup than red wine or green tea.
There is also data suggesting that regular eating (or drinking) of dark chocolate without sugar (or strong dark chocolate-based cocoa [without sugar]) can calm skin that’s been irritated by sun exposure, and in general, improve skin texture, hydration and appearance. Cocoa butter is actually a familiar additive to many cosmetic products such as body butters, creams or scrubs.
She notes that, in general, chocolate and chocolate-based products are good natural choices to improve your skin. It will act as a moisturizer (makes skin smoother and more supple); calm irritated, dry skin; promote rejuvenation from inside out and help detoxification.

Appetizer: Fresh Oysters on half a shell, lemon wedges; arrange on crushed ice
Oysters are very rich in zinc, which is essential for testosterone production and the maintenance of healthy sperm. Even though women have far less testosterone than men, it plays a key part in the female libido as well. Oysters also boost dopamine, a hormone, which results in increased libido in both men and women.
Main Course: Broiled trout or wild salmon; stir-fry asparagus with crushed garlic; avocado salad.
Trout and wild salmon are high in Omega-3, which will certainly increase overall health and sexual stamina, improve mood and memory and of course bring a healthy glow to your skin. Asparagus has plenty of Vitamin B that helps increase production of histamine. Histamine is important for healthy sex drive for both men and women. Garlic contains Allicin, a compound credited with increasing blood flow to the sexual organs. Some experts believe that garlic is a very powerful aphrodisiac–but it doesn’t work overnight, so you will need to make it a part of your daily diet to see the real effects. Avocado is rich in folic acid for increased energy, and its healthy fats help many body functions. It also contains Vitamin B6, which is instrumental in the production of androgens (male hormones) that are so important for both women and men in supporting their sex drive.

Alarming skin issues
So you have a hot date planned? You’re unbelievably excited, and
then, you look in the mirror and a pimple rudely popped up on your face
in a most noticeable place. For most of us, we not only want to jump in
bed and hide under the covers until the zit disappears, but we want to
pop it. Both “solutions” actually won’t help at all!
Popping the pimple will not “kill it” but rather “kills” more of your skin cells by inviting more bacteria in and facilitating more inflammation. Also, the more concentrated dead skin cells means more visible acne marks. Find out how to get rid of that baby in an effective way.
