Easter is around the corner and you may be wondering what chocolate-y treats you can have, without making you breakout. I am here with good news, friend!
You don't have to feel deprived, miss out on celebrating, or deal with an acne flare up this holiday.
Chocolate, by itself, is not the cause of acne. Meaning the cocoa bean chocolate is made from, is not an acne-causing food. It's the other problematic ingredients in the chocolate treat that give chocolate a bad rap.
So what ingredients are causing acne?
Dairy is a big one. So always read the ingredient labels and make sure milk, cream, butter and whey are not listed.
These days, there are many options for dairy-free chocolate. Looking for labels like "vegan," can be a helpful start, but are not an acne-free guarantee.
"Organic" is great, but doesn't mean it's dairy free.
Don't have time to search or are confused by labels? Here are my latest choices for dairy-free chocolates that won't cause acne. These Unreal Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars taste like a Mounds bar.
Or, if you are more of a chocolate peanut butter cup fan, these Unreal Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups are so yum!
So, if you like chocolate, and who doesn't, let's be honest... go try these babies!
Wishing you a beautiful holiday, friend!
