Is Chocolate Really Bad for Our Skin?

Is Chocolate Really Bad for Our Skin?

Hey chocolate lovers!

First of all, we hope you all had Happy Easter and had a great time spent with family and friends. We hope the Easter bunny visited your house all well!

 

So Easter has just finished and while we are really sad that the festivities are over, we are also very happy with our chocolate haul for the year. We here at LUS love to eat chocolates a lot. We have one question. Isn't it bad for your skin? Will eating it really make all those pesky pimples pop up?

 

NO! Chocolate is not bad for your skin! We have all heard our parents and grandparents say that it causes pimples and blackheads. This is all just a myth. There are links between diet and bad skin but cocoa (the main ingredient) isn't the cause of pimples! Phew, but what in our diet can cause bad skin?

 

Sugar however can cause pimples. Foods that have a lot of sugar and high G.I can cause your skin to break out. G.I stands for Glycaemic foods. The body burns sugar and G.I first so it also makes your body feel sluggish and tired, which no one likes. Chocolate does have sugar but dark and white flavours have low G.I! The darker it is the less sugar it has and even milk chocolate has lo G.I so if its darker it must be lower G.I.

 

The artisan dark chocolate trend is something we can definitely get behind if it means we can eat more and not worry about our skin so much!

 

So the old tale of chocolate being bad for you skin is just a myth! We can now all enjoy our Easter treats in peace, just make sure not to eat the whole box or bunny in one go.

Love Izzi and the LUS team xxx

Somewhere Between: Developing a Skincare Routine for Tweens

on August 03, 2018

As much as we would like them to, unfortunately, our children can’t stay young forever. It’s inevitable that they are going to grow up and experience all of the exciting, fun and scary aspects that puberty brings along with it. One of the not-so-fun parts of puberty is the ever-changing balance of hormones which often effects the way skin behaves, with many tweens experiencing the emergence of oily T-zones, breakouts of blackheads and pimples, and in some instances, a more severe case of acne
