Surprising Effect Chocolate Has on Your Skin
You must be exercising some serious self control.
Leftover Halloween candy can taunt us – the sweet, rich, creamy, spicy, crunchy, chewy treats are tempting.
But if you’re holding back, not because you’re scared of ruining your teeth or waistline, but rather, your complexion, we have good news.
Chocolate does not cause acne.
Researchers and dermatologists say it’s a bittersweet myth that may actually be more tied to your emotional state. Many people reach for chocolate when they’re feeling down or stressed, and THAT is what can trigger breakouts.
So enjoy those Hershey’s, M&Ms and Reeses!
And it’s not only delicious to eat, but it’s also a healthy treatment for your skin. Chocolate’s anti-oxidant properties give you smooth and healthy skin. So whether you just sneak a piece here and there, or are a full-fledged chocoholic, go ahead. It’s good for you!
