9 Acne Myths You Should Ignore


2. Chocolate Causes Acne

There is no definitive link between chocolate and acne, but there is a link between high glycemic foods and acne. So, if chocolate is high in sugar, that could lead to acne, but the chocolate itself is not the culprit. Consider a low-sugar chocolate or dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate as the latter contains more sugar. Avoid white bread, pasta, and other processed grains. Whole wheat and multigrain breads are less likely to contribute to acne.
