Does eating chocolate cause acne?


“Acne diets” prohibiting chocolate and other high fat goodies were popular years ago. However, the Dermatology Clinic at UAMS has good news for acne patients. Modern dermatologists no longer recommend acne diets. There is no good evidence to link chocolate or other specific foods to acne, so restricting someones diet is not the best treatment. Acne treatments today focus on keeping the pores open and controlling oil production and bacteria in the skin.
