We all love an oh so sweet and delectable dessert, but they’re almost always made with ingredients that trigger skin woes; from acne breakouts to breaking down collagen (yes, really!)
Dairy is almost always found in desserts, it helps to make them extra creamy and delicious! However, dairy is packed in hormones that end up interfering with your own hormones, as well as increases sebum in the skin, which then results in those huge, deep pimples around the mouth and chin.
Sugar is another major culprit (duh, we like it sweet!) but sugar can wreak havoc internally and then manifest externally as all sorts of skin issues.
Sugar may increase sebum (hello, clogged pores!) as well as break down important structural proteins, namely collagen, and elastin. Enjoy the sweet stuff on a regular basis, and you may soon be desperately trying to invest in the best anti-aging lotions and potions.
You deserve to treat yourself and enjoy desserts, everything in moderation after all. But wouldn’t you like to start enjoying desserts a little more frequently and know that they aren’t going to affect your skin?
In fact, imagine enjoying a delectable dessert made with ingredients that will help to feed your skin with nutrients!
If you’re confused then this article will clear it up for you!

Avocados are packed in healthy fats and Vitamin E to neutralize free radicals, while coconut milk’s fatty acid content will help to fight inflammation and promote the most gorgeous glow! There’s no sugar in sight either, raw dates add all the sweetness you need to this mouth-watering confection.
Pumpkin Chia Pudding
If you have yet to jump on the chia pudding train then this is the best place to start!
