Before You Eat That Easter Chocolate...

Dorothy Carr Tuesday, March 06, 2018

We know what you're thinking: "Oh great, another article telling me chocolate is bad for my skin."

Nope! :)

If you believe eating dark chocolate is really bad for your skin, it is time to change the way you think! Indulging in the sweet treat won't make you break out. In fact, there are beauty benefits to eating dark chocolate.

How?

Stick with dark chocolate. The lower in sugar content, and the higher percentage of cacao (cocoa), the better!

Dark chocolate contains iron, calcium, and vitamins A, B1, C, D, and E that repair dry skin. The antioxidant flavonoids found in dark chocolate have been clinically shown to help with many things in the body, like providing UV protections for your skin!

While you shouldn't use this as an excuse to eat that entire Easter bunny chocolate egg, or to skip the sunscreen, you can at least eat a few small bites in moderation during this season of chocolate sweets, and not feel guilty about it!
