Question: Does chocolate cause pimples?
Another popular acne myth that has been passed down through each generation is that chocolate causes pimples. Luckily, this is not true. However, this doesn’t mean you can over indulge in chocolate, or any high sugar, over processed food for that matter.

Studies do show that diets high in sugar and fat can throw off your body’s natural hormone levels, which may increase sebum production and cause inflammation. This is especially true for people who are acne prone.

This doesn’t mean you have to eliminate chocolate all together, but it does mean you should cut down or switch to dark chocolate. The natural chemicals found in the high cocoa content of dark chocolate contain antioxidants, which help protect your cells against free radicals.
