Acne Myth #2: Chocolate Causes Acne
And now to answer the question of whether or not chocolate causes acne... (Drum roll)
Chocolate causes acne? NO WAY! Chocolate does not aggravate acne. It does not come thru the skin. If you eat a lot of chocolate then it might be an indication of a poor diet - one not rich in vitamins and minerals. If your diet does not provide adequate nutrition then your body is stressed and STRESS makes acne worse.
So eat a well balanced diet. A good rule of thumb is to eat 35+ grams of fiber a day, a wide variety of vegetables, rarely eat processed or fast food and drink 50+ ounces of water a day. Avoid sugary drinks and food because sugar causes inflammation and interferes with many body systems such as as weakening your immune system, slowing your healing rate, affecting your heart health and increasing weight gain.
You are what you eat! Stay healthy, my friends.
