For radiant skin as you age, forget expensive anti-wrinkle creams and try a little chocolate.

A Swiss chocolate manufacturer says its studies show that specially-developed chocolate packed with antioxidants can make your skin more elastic and moist.

The group says it has found a way to preserve the antioxidants in cocoa beans in the chocolate-making process, and eating less than an ounce a day will help.

Skeptics say it is not clear that chocolate can improve your skin, but dark chocolate has been shown to help lower blood pressure and reduce stroke risk.
