Acne exacerbated by dark chocolate!

male-eating-chocolate A recent study published in the International Journal of Dermatology showed that dark chocolate when consumed in normal amounts for 4 weeks can exacerbate acne in male subjects with acne-prone skin. Both comedonal (blackheads & whiteheads) and inflammatory (papules, pustules) acne were made worse by eating dark chocolate. Two other recent studies showed that sweets, cake, & chocolate when consumed on a regular basis are associated with acne, and large epidemiological studies have demonstrated that milk and diets with a high glycemic index also worsen acne.
