Chocolate and stains – is there a connection?

“Easter is getting closer. It starts on Good Friday, there is an Easter Sunday and then ends on Tuesday with Diabetes.

As Jimmy's joke shows, Easter has been synonymous with chocolate enjoyment since the advent of the confectionery egg.

The good news is that even though many of you may put your outbreaks on a sweet tooth, it's not chocolate in itself that devastates your skin.

The bad news is that the bucket load of refined sugar and animal fats in popular milk chocolate eggs ( more here )! To fix your chocolate without the dreaded outbreaks, follow my three top tips:


I said it before, but unlike its healthier relatives, dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) is full of antioxidants, promotes heart health, and makes us happier!

There are a lot of dark eggs and some also fair trade – double brownie points!


Even though it may be easy to be happy about your egg, put this mindfulness into practice and eat it in small portions throughout the day instead of eating all at once!

A dramatic increase in our sugar content causes the body to produce more insulin, which in turn produces more sebum. Excess sebum can clog the pores and cause blemishes.

Moderating sugar consumption avoids these sudden spikes, and although chocolate still leads to a little more sebum, your skin is more likely to conform to it without breaking out. If it does break out anyway, scroll down to find the products we recommend to help restore balance to blemished skin.

Walk in the Sunshine

If it's a wonderful Easter weekend, why not go for a walk? This may not necessarily prevent you from getting stains, but it is good for the mind (and for relieving stress in general) and prevents these unsaturated fats from depositing in unwanted areas …!

Happy Easter from Pai!
