Most evil myth in the chocoholic world. Chocolate DOES NOT cause, WILL NOT cause and NEVER HAS caused acne or 'pimples'. I should know. My family traditionally has terrible skin - I'm a chocoholic (as are they) and my skin is great.

Chocolate may have some effect on your skin. instead of eating chocolate and drinking coke have a salad and a GOOD brand of water. hair gel,wax,oil cause spots on the forehead if your hair isnt washed at least 4 times weekly, cut down on crisps aswell because they are a bad thing for spots.

Nah its stuff like touching your face with your hands and fingers that cause pimple.
The bacteria and oils of your hands get transfered on to your face and cause havoc.
Thats one contributing factor.
Also yeah as some other cat mentioned. Oily foods cause it too.
you wanna get rid pimples stop drinkin BS like coke etc and start drinking water.

chocolate doesn't cause spots. it was used a lot so that children at the age of puberty would eat more healthily if they thought they were getting spots from eating bad foods. i used to not eat it but a doctor told me it made no difference so i started eating it again and he was right. but even still, eat healthy because it makes you feel better anyway! especially if your going through puberty

I am 53 years old.  Since I was a teenager I have been able to produce pimples by eating a lot of chocolate.  I can eat chocolate for 3 days, and produce one or more pimples on my face every time without fail.  The same goes for my son and daughter.  I hypothesis that this may be genetic, and not true for everyone.  Maybe more of an allergy to one of the ingredients in chocolate, such as the caffeine or another chemical that is present in chocolate (forget the name at the moment) that is a 'stimulant', which is one of the reasons chocolate is addicting and makes you feel good.
Every time I get my daughter off of chocolate, her face clears up really well.  Every time she reads that chocolate does not cause pimples and she starts eating it again, her face breaks out like crazy.
Everyone is different.  I think there is NOT one answer for everyone.  My theory.  Since this can be reproduced in myself and my two children every time without fail, that tends towards being scientific evidence/fact. Remember, some people can die if they eat some kinds of 'nuts', but my family does perfectly fine with them.  I think we need to stop this 'one size fits all' because, like with my daughter, it does a great amount of harm.  Also, I think the research done on chocolate and pimples, if I recall the last time I checked, was paid for by people that have a $vested$ interest in chocolate sales, just like the tobacco companies had 3rd party 'tests' done showing that cigarettes were good for you.
IMHO

I get the feeling too that chocolate (and other foods with fat or sugar) contribute to pimples.

It's this feeling that causes people to think that this may be a fact.

I'm sure that all the people that think that this is a myth are all really fat, addicted to chocolate and looking for excuses why it's not a problem to eat so much (chocolate). ;)

Do you hate being teased at in school because you have a pimple on your face? Do you feel embarrassed and you dont want anyone to see it? Do you feel less confident? I do. It sucks to have a damn pimple and it sucks more if you have it in your forehead. Even worse, the tip of your nose like I used to have back in 9th grade. If any one have any tips, respond .

any food with an excess of sugar ingredients can cause spots for many people.  some lucky folks can eat what they like and not suffer.
being chinese i was taught not to eat crisps,
to restrict my consumption of roasted or
barbecued food(burgers and kfc are no no's).  if we eat these types of food our internal systems become too "heated" and we need to "cool" our internal systems down by eating fruits e.g. apples, pears, melons etc and drinking lots of boiled water that has cooled down to cleanse our systems.  when i was a kid i found this to be a real pain but it works. i have just started eating chocolate again and guess what?.......spots have appeared all over my face!!!!  it does not help being the vainest chinese guy in the world ha ha.

BELIEVE ME!! And a good advise would be to NEVER use tooth paste for pimple it makes it worse... and if u pop a pimple then you are to wash your hands and your face or the bacteria can spread and cause more pimples.. I'm sure about this one Cuz my friends go thru this a lot "PIMPLES" !!

After reading some of the posts in this forum and doing some of my own research here is what I have to say:
Sugar does not cause pimples, it is a basic source of energy for the body along with starches and grains. Sugar has the potential take give you energy and make you fat, but it won't give you pimples.
What you eat is what you are - eating oily or fatty foods can in crease the amount of sebum that the skin produces. If this sebum is at such a quantity that it clogs up pores, then it becomes infected and turns into a pimple.
Bacteria also contribute to pimples as do hormones.

Here are the types of food that do cause pimples:
Fatty foods, dairy products (lactose), most fast-food, soft drinks (coke, etc).
Here are the types of food that do not cause pimples:
fruits/veggies. Lean meat cooked without excessive oil, bread/pasta/rice, most soy products.

As far as chocolate goes, it depends on the type of choc, and your genetic tolerance to it. If the chocolate is oily then it is reasonable to assume that it would affect you more than a dry chocolate. I know that my family is prone to breakouts after chocolate, but I know many people who eat it by the handful and never have a spot.

While there is no pinpoint answer to the cause of acne, here is what chemically occurs throughout the body. The oil glands "come to life" around puberty. Unfortunately the glands are located just below the surface of the skin. If the glands continue to secrete oils, they escape through the openings in the pores. The oils, by nature are meant to lubricate and protect the skin. During certain circumstances too many oils attempt to escape through the pores and the oil glands block the openings. The blockage causes oil build-up under the skin's surface. As the oils block the pores, bacteria feeds on the off the oil and multiply causing surrounding tissues to inflame. If the inflammation is local, near the surface of the skin a pustule develops. (*Pustule: A pustule is a small collection of pus in the top layer of skin (epidermis) or beneath it in the dermis. Pustules frequently form in sweat glands or hair follicles. Pus is a mixture of inflammatory cells and liquid.) If the inflammation is deeper, it creates a papule, frequently referred to as a pimple. (*Papule: A small solid rounded bump rising from the skin that is usually less than 1 centimeter in diameter, less than 3/8 inch across.) If the inflammation is more compact and yet deeper than a papule, the result is a cyst. (*Cyst: A closed sac or capsule usually filled with fluid or semisolid material.) In the event the oil break through the skin's surface, a whitehead forms. (*Whitehead: A familiar term for what is medically called a closed comedo. A whitehead is a comedo that has an obstructed opening to the skin. A closed comedo may rupture and cause a low-grade skin inflammatory reaction in the area.) Once the oil is oxidized, it forms a blackhead. (*Blackhead: A familiar term for what is medically called an open comedo. By contrast, a closed comedo has an obstructed opening to the skin and may rupture to cause a low-grade skin inflammatory reaction in the area. The common name for a closed comedo is a whitehead.) All along you thought you had a pimple! Contrary to popular belief acne is not caused by heredity, food, dirt, or stress. In extreme cases, a child MAY inherit acne from a parent. Acne is more a universal condition than hereditary. Just because a family member suffers from severe acne, does not mean you have to as well. Food does not cause acne, not matter how greasy it is. Avoiding junk food is better for all-around health, but not specifically better for acne. Stress does not have a direct link to acne. Acne may cause stress, not vice versa.

People who says chocolate doesn't cause acne and still insist that they don't are lacking of knowledge and experience. My sister and I have this problem when eating chocolate, and I can reproduce the problem. When I don't eat chocolate not a single acne surfaces on my face, tried not eating one for a couple of months. Eat a couple, 2 days later it's surfacing.
Once, I ate a whole lot in a day, 3 acne appeared. But this wasn't ordinary, each acne had multiple "cores"! You know the white stuff that comes out when u squeeze them, well, it had like 4 on each of them close together and definitely painful. I squeezed them out altogether with the blood till they stop coming out. 2 days later more cores appeared. Gaah!! I hate chocolate, but I want them!!
If you don't get acne from eating chocolate, then it's not in your genes, simple as that! And you should be happy. I'm 24 now, but when I was teenager, I didn't get problems from eating chocolate, never I had acne.My older sister is also getting acnes from chocolate.
To summarize, some people get acnes from eating chocolate and other don't. Don't say that since you don't get acnes from eating chocolate, that means chocolate don't cause them.

I'm 32 and have had spots forever. I also got spots after eating chocolate and I also read the billion of stories saying that chocolate does not cause pimples. However, I read somewhere that dairy products also cause pimples. So I stopped eating all kinds of dairy products and my spots virtually disappeared (I wish I had known earlier...). So I developed a theory: Most chocolate contains dairy products, so its the milk in the chocolate that causes the pimples (maybe the chocolate amplifies the effect) and not the chocolate itself. To test this I should start eating pure chocolate but I haven't done that yet so at this moment I cannot support my claim.
So my advice is, cut the dairy and eat only pure chocolate without milk.

2. Roaccutane sucks. It made my forehead worse. I had to stop it right in the middle and then i waas switched to a different treatment which worked perfectly fine however i still have slight marks.  The treatment was (Benzamycene - Zynerit - Minocine ) I love these three.

Well all u guys are like :O about acne but if i want to get rid of it, i use benzymycin topical gel. MIght have spelled it wrong but it really works. you apply the gel twice a day morning and night. Before you apply the gel,  you wash ur face with bar soap and hot water. It really works. To make the gel more effective try to squeeze out the white stuff of any pimples possible and put a ton of gel over it... guaranteed to be gone over night.
      About the chochalate thing my friend says ur stupid for thinking it causes acne but all u guys are like saying it does so i'mreally confused lol.

i have battled acne for ages and have worked in many places like The Body Shop and for a clinic.  Ive been on medication (tetracycline) and on Acutane, but the one thing that i have seen is that dairy products do have an adverse affect on your skin.  My skin is more dry than oily and i still get it and i have used Tea Tree Oil products for eternity and seen very little result, but when i started using a full skin care routine from LUSH i found my acne problem taking a lovely turn for the better.  Flax seed oil is also heavy in my diet as it produces Omega 3 acids which help your body's production of natural oil.  Using a moisturizing facial wash and moisturizer has helped me tremendously and getting onto something consistently helps your skin start to balance.  if you want to help your skin realize that it takes 27 days to complete a full skin cycle which is where your skin rejuvenates itself.  wash your face and moisturize at least twice (morning and before bed) keep dairy products to a minimal if you are not working out or exercising because they will build up and produce bad oils.  chocolate has milk products in it and i eat them and then work out to burn off any fatty acids or anything unhealthy for my body.  eating fish is also a healthy bonus.  make sure no matter how oily your skin feels or how acne covered...not to pop your pimples, it breaks the skins surface and you will end up with scars..it also pushes the dirt and oil deeper into your skin as well as up out of your pores..BIG NONO resist you will have a whitehead for one or two days,,and eternity of good skin if you can resist, i recommend also using The Body Shop's tea tree oil cover stick if you cant help poking them because you aren't strong enough to handle not popping them...pure cocoa butter oil is also good for your skin (most people only use it for really dry skin) but in the purest form it actually pulls the dirt and oils from your skin and gives your skin the much needed moisture it craves.  hope this isn't too much to do.

what is 4 a week? i use clean and clear and it doesn't dry my face out (its called lotion) anyway i don't believe that chocolate causes pimples and i never have my mom always tells me that but i eat chocolate quite a bit (not to much though i watch my weight) and it doesn't give me pimples or zits if you have acne problems try proactive my friend did and it helped a ton...or if you don't want to spend that much money pull your hair back when you sleep so its not touching your face (oils in your hair can cause pimples) also make sure your pillow is clean and try not to touch your face too much if you use cover-up be sure to wash it off at the end of the day believe it or not it clogs your pores and thats Does cause pimples.... good luck with your pimple problems.. hope i helped

The skin is the body's largest organ and it does a great deal of work helping the body to eliminate toxins. Chocolate can cause blemishes in some people that resemble pimples, in the form of either a fatty discharge from a pore, or a red spot, resembling a small rash. Some people report that the high amount of animal fat contained in chocolate can be expelled from the body through the skin. It is usually white and fatty, like bacon fat. Other body types have a hard time dealing with sugar and this causes red blemishes on the skin, which are sometimes itchy. For more information see my web site at http://www.scottiesharpe.com/articles/what_causes_pimples.htm

Sorry for asking another question, but I don't know how to create another post.

I'm a 24yr Male and about 4 or 5 days ago,
I developed two zits... one is inside my nose near the tip and the other is under my left pit, which hurts like !@#% whenever I move my arm.

The one on my nose, I finally popped, but upon waking up this morning, my nose has swelled even more... which kind of ticks me off cause people at work think that I'm sick and some have even called me the "Red Nose Reindeer" >_<

The one below my arm pit feels like a bone and a few say that I'm going to have to have it lanced.

I'm been trying Listerine (Dad) and Toothpaste (My own), for the past few days, but none of them seem to be taking any affect.

Any help will be greatly accepted

PS.. I'm a candy holic and eat very little.
.... I'm also 5'8" and about 120 lbs with a
.... very high metabolism.

When I get them I have a special method:
First, I heat it up, with hot water. That way it opens easily.
Next, I take a needle and sizzle it in fire.
Then I stick the needle in the p-----. It's painless and there's no blood. After the sebum is cleared out, I treat it as an open wound. I pour rubbing alchohol in it. Then a cream that for cuts and wounds. And then finish it off with a bandage + the cream.


Personally, I do think that chocolate causes spots. I am on a no-sugar diet (or as little sugar as possible). I'm 14. I do quite well on my face. I bodybuild. I think washing your face every day helps alot. And touching your face with unwashed hands is not good.

Well, I'm 36 and i suffer from cystic acne.  No fun,believe me.  Leaves scars and is hard to treat.  There is nothing you can do to keep from getting acne, but you can avoid it to some degree.  There are 4 levels of acne and most people suffer from stage 1 and is nothing to get concerned about.  If someone teases you, well, there just revealing there true nature and how very petty they are to judge someone for something they would never choose to bring on themselves.  As far as treating acne, what works for one person, don't work for another person.  Some really good things that I have tried and had some success from are Tea Tree Oil, Metro Gel, Defferin Gel, Ivory soap.  For those who think others are freaks because they are suffering emotional stress over acne, well...as they say, don't judge a person till you walked a mile in there shoes.  Good luck...

Throughout the years, they have given me countless hours of rapture. Sorry but i have to disapoint the fan who eats them: thats not my bag, baby. And how did i come to that; oh yes. Chocolate gives me zits, some of them are underground and they are the worst coz they hurt the most.How can i make this interesting.. well, all i can say is that the onez on the butt are the most exciting, coz 9 times out if 10, you'll have to get some1 else to pop them for you. Using various tools. Hey! and did you know that when we say mate to people in N.Z, it means like, friend, bro, whatever. Not like a marriage partner! You guys are weird. Oe maybe it's us.Who knows!

Hair rubbing against the face can cause spots, especially at night when you move around in your sleep and your hair gets in your face, try to keep your hair away from your face during the day and i always wear a headband at night. My skin has really cleared up. I also suggest washing your face with alabu soap available online. I have also cut drinking so much tea and it has really helped, hope some of the advice works because i am now really confident and happy with my skin!xxxxxx

I agree with some of you. I'm also alergic to chocolate. If I ate chocolate even a single bite, almost 100% there will be an acne or more in 1 or 2 days. But if I absent eating chocolate and peanut, I get smooth and acne-free face. Some of my friend don't have any problem with chocolate whereas they have acne problem. There must be something in chocolate that stimulate a hormone in my body or may be something else? Current medical science technology doesn't have the answer yet.

I AGREE with everyone who says it depends on the person. There is no RIGHT or WRONG.

TOO Much chocolate will be bad for you, but there are some people who suffer then from spots, and some who dont.

Dont believe people who say DEFINATELY YES, DEFINATELY NO, see for yourself.

Everyone is different and maybe you might even have a slight allergy to it.

Who knows. Best thing to do is speak to your doctor and ask them if you PERSONALLY can be affected by chocolate.

Just so you know, this is from past experience of eating too much chocolate, and also from reading other peoples testemonies.


Morale of Story is:
SEE FOR YOURSELF. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT!.

Everyone is obviously confused as to what causes spots and blotches. I hate it when I walk through my city and see loads of smooth clear skinned girls with not a spot or blemish in sight.I am 20 and I have had to deal with red blotches (apparently rosacea acne) for the past 5 years. There is no obvious pattern but my face reddens when I get out of the shower, put some creams and moisturisers on my face, or come in from the cold or heat.I have tried herbal, chinese and antibiotoic medicines but none have helped.My next step is to go to a food allergy specialist and maybe get to the root cause there. If anyone is going through what I have to go through, then I do sympathise with you.Good luck skin sufferers.

At puberty, the oil glands of the skin start producing an oily material called sebum. Sebum lubricates the skin. Sometimes the wall of the oil gland breaks and spills the sebum within the skin which causes redness, swelling, and pus - in other words a pimple. Plugged oil glands may form blackheads and whiteheads. Blackheads are not caused by dirt.
There is a bacteria that normally lives on the skin called Propionibacterium acnes. This bacteria lives on the sebum produced by the skin oil glands. Sometimes, this bacteria multiplies and causes inflammation and acne.
Acne is built into your genes; it runs in families.
In women, acne frequently worsens at the time of menstruation.
Foods do not cause acne. In some people, certain foods will make acne worse. The most common ones are chocolate, nuts, carbonated beverages, and milk. Most people's acne is not aggravated by these foods.
Acne may become worse under stress.
Cosmetics make acne worse.
Adult women often have trouble with acne through middle age. The reason is unknown

Dirt does not contribute to pimples.
Washing your face a billion times a day - if physically possible would not get rid of pimples.

And...
chocolate CAN have an effect on certain people, so can any other food - spots can sometimes be a warning to stop you eating certain foods which your body thinks are bad.

Wow! This pimple discussion has been going since 9/10/2003. Thatís Amazing. Anyway, check out this website. Youíll learn a lot from it: http://www.seasonsindia.com/beauty/acne_sea.htm

This is what I learned:
1. If you have red angry looking acne, don't touch it. If you squeeze now, all you'll do is force the contents deeper into the skin that will make matters worst. And all you'll end up with is redder, angrier acne than you had before. Don't do it.
2. If you have a yellow custard top? Go for it. These beauties CAN be squeezed but there's an art to it. Here's how. Wash your hands thoroughly to avoid trouble and infection. Put a tissue over your finger. Why? Because you want the contents of the spot on the tissue, not splattered all over the mirror. Using the side of your thumb and the end of your finger, very gently start to squeeze. Don't whatever you do, use your nails as this will damage your skin. Stop when you're applying a lot of pressure and nothing is happening and you see clear fluid, rather than yellow grotty stuff and the spot begins to bleed. When you've finished dab it with antiseptic. Once the custard bit is out, the spot will heal more quickly than an unsqueezed yellow top would, providing that you now leave it well alone. Now wash your hands again.
3. Whiteheads and blackheads. If acne is left untreated they may cause this problem. Here the rule is if they're black, squeeze but if they're small, white raised lumps leave them alone. All that stuff about clean hands, tissues and stopping if nothing is happening or you see blood, apply here too.

chocolate doesnít cause them people! and neither does what you eat. take a nutrition class! pimples come from dirt and oils produced naturally from your skin. (stress can be a factor. you can produce more oil when you are stressed out) just wash your face (not that that will totally work. everyone is different sometimes, in cases of acne, well acne, what it is, is a disease in your skinÖ.like foot acne, thatís when you need to get it treated by a doctor. Anyways, peopleÖ donít worry so much about what you eat affecting your skin, clean your face regularly and use medicine.. clean and clear 10% benzyl peroxide, or those other ones. just follow the food pyramid-be healthy!

The biggest myth of modern times is perhaps the myth itself that chocolate can not cause pimples...

Perhaps there is a genetic reason why some people get pimples when eating certain chocolates. Perhaps there are other factors like your health, allergies and what you generally eat.

Certainly I have this problem and don't need anybody to tell me it's a myth. When I eat certain chocolates, 2 days after my skin feels more greasy and I usually get several pimples in my face. Since I love chocolate I have very solid statistics about this.

And why is it that spicy food can change the odor and chemistry of your skin???

So if something you eat can change the chemistry of your skin is it so hard to imagine that if your skin is already sensitive to pimple infections then chocolate could be the triggering factor to start an infection? Certainly it's hard to imagine that chocolate with it's fat and sugar can move the skins chemistry in anything but a bad direction.

In my experience some chocolates are much worse than others. Actually some expensive Belgian chocolates are causing me most problems (I love those - but hate their effects).

And by the way, the study at US Naval Academy on navy guys is perhaps stupid. Their metabolism is such that they burn the sugar and fats during their training so they are likely burning everything internally inside their body before it surfaces on the skin and likely not having the sensitive skin I mentioned.

The test should be done on more normal people who are frequently eating junk food and who are not doing much exercise - people who easily get pimples already.

Then nobody can seriously be surprised to see a statistical negative effect of chocolate on the frequency of pimples.

Why isn't this completely logic???

IF you eat fruits take vitamins and don't eat much junk food you will look great.RIGHT???If you eat chocolate,candies,junk food you'll have bad skin WON'T YOU???? I think it makes sense..

Listen kids. You are missing out on the most important fact here. Your brain and your thoughts are more powerful than you know. If you THINK that by eating chocolate or crisps or whatever that you are going to get zits you more than likely will. In medicine it is called the placebo effect. Don't underestimate the power of your thoughts. Try and be positive and happy and watch what happens to your spots. And stop worrying so much! Things are going to work out OK.

OMG!!! who started this thing that chocolate creates pimples. look some people may go on forever with out chocolate because they are scared of getting PIMPLES. but if they do so well then they'll be missing out on one of the most greatest things. many people say that chocolate is the cause of pimples but hey you just need to start looking at your pimples as a positive thing. many people who don't have pimples, well in my opinion may just be a bit immature. pimples are a cause of growing up and maturity. so i say don't be that scared of getting a zit. just think to yourself "Yea so what, I'm growing up and yea it is a pimple but hey everyone will get at least one and it won't kill ya....... or will it......"

well, chocolate does not cause pimples. pimples are cause by oils and dirt clogging your pores and then -POOF-, a pimple. also, one reason why you get pimples on big nights, you get nervous, you sweat a little and sweat = pimples. so, yeah.

look having spots is a whole part of GROWING up just like everything else us ladies go through personaly i would say that part of chocolate and sugar foods are to blame but don't blame it all on the chocolate it is the contents of the chocolate bar i would say just washing your face with pure fresh water everyday should do the trick and by being careful of stuff you put on your face like applying to much make up is one thing and putting oily liquids on your face is another  xxlisaxx p.s don't squeeze i heard

ok, heres haw spots or pimples or zits are formed.
ther isnt 1 way of pimples to apear , they apear because of different reasons,, eg.
when you swet it couses the paws in your face to open up and let moisture out of your skin to cool you down, BUT when they are at this proses dirt and baktirea forms in some of the paws which couse pipmles. another reason is eating healthly , yes it is true chocolate doesnt give you pimples nor does chips/crisps but if you are constantly eating high calorie foods it causes your skin and blood to go bad , which then if you have bad blood you have bad skin , their for , you have greese in your skin which is coming from all the high calories,again causes pimples. ther is many many ways why we have piples ,many of which are baisicaly common sence.

all i have to say is to clean your bedroom, make sure it is dust free because that causes you to break out..an oily/dirty hair is also another problem specially if you leave it down touching your cheeks most of the time..make sure you wash your face with a cleanser and put on a moisturizer with acne medication..and if those doesn't work then i guess you'll need a dermatologist...

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I'm now 24. I used to have mild acne back in high school. I hated having it back then, and I even used just about every available product there was available. What's really going to break your heart is that it just takes time to get over it (usually). Unless you have a very sensitive (and I mean VERY SENSITIVE) type of skin, you'll eventually get over all the acne. The only thing that sucks is that it's going to last at least a couple of years. I didn't start having acne until I was about 16. It lasted until I was easily around the age of 19. I really wish I had a better answer for you guys, but it's something that's just built into a lot of our hormones. You honestly can eat just about any kind of food, and you're still going to get zits. There are a few medecines out there such as "Natures Cure" that give you a pill suplement to swallow, and it's supposed to calm your hormones and slow down the pimple effect, but still it doesn't completely cure the acne problem. I wish all of you luck. I used to face the same problem, but now I have a very clean face. I still get pimples every now and then, but it's usually just one pimple at a time, so it's not even noticeable. Just remember to still wash your face every day, because the oil your skin produces doesn't help at all.

the first time i ever experienced chocolate giving me pimples was in the past few days. i am a 13 year old boy in 8th grade and i got alot of candy on halloween. just like every other boy my age, i indulged in the candy and chocolate in the past three days. today i realized that i had many pimples on my thighs and a few on my back. luckily, i only got them where nobody can see them. but for other people it could be diffrent. i will probably not eat any chocolate for the next few days and they will all go away. i usually hav pretty clear skin except maybe a few reely tiny pimples around my nose and a few on the back of my neck where nobody can notice. from self experience, i say that chocolate does give you pimples and i dont care what anybody else says on this site. dont try telling me that i got the pimples from something else cuz ive never had pimples on my thighs before and never this many on my back and the back of my neck.it would be a very very unusual coincedence for it not to be from the chocolate. with that i conclude, chocolate does indeed give u pimples.

Pimples on your face is caused by bacteria on your face eating at the sebum your skin produces.  The faster the sebum is produced, the more likely you will have a blockage in the pores.  Over time the bacteria on your face eats away the sebum and grows on your face.  Your body responds by producing white cells to attack the bacteria, stretching the pores, surrounding the bacteria.  This entrapment of the bacteria requires alot of blood around the infected area where the bacteria live.  This is when you would see redness or a pimple.   Sebum is a mixture of oil, bacteria, glucose.  It is necessary to excrete excess glucose and oil, and to coat your skin in a protective moisturizing layer.     The more sugar you eat, whether it be chocolate, pop, cake, icecream, candy, etc,  the more you raise the sugar level in your body.  The excess sugar gets excreted out of your skin.  The bacteria on your face feeds on the sugar.  Any excessive oily foods you eat will also get excreted out of the skin.  Example, cheese on pizza, fried chicken, fried anything, whip cream.  However the excess oil will help block your pores and entrap the sebum trying to get out
  Everybody has different levels of sugar and oil intake capacity before they break out.  Some people can eat a whole cake and a bucket of fried chicken, and not break out.  
Others may break out after a couple of days. So eat healthy and eat sugar and greasy foods in moderation.  You will have to ween yourself off of pop and sweet foods.  Even eating too many fruits can cause pimples.  Sugar is plentiful in almost all foods.  Be aware, make sure you take in olive oil, and fish oil and the odd greasy pizza now and then.  Carrots have alot of carotene which turns into vitamin A once your body uses it.  Eat a carrot before you go to bed if you have a big pimple on your face

I don't think chocolate causes acne.  Hormones, grease, dirt, ect. cause it... though I've heard cases where it does affect some people.  I'm 16, I just got off my period and I'm currently using Clearasil Cleanser & Vanishing Cream.  It's kinda working... better than the panoxyl crap.  Over the summer I had *NO* acne, and I was using Clean&Clear Ultra face wash stuff... but then when I started school I broke out horribly bad.  I switched around to all kinds of cleansers, can't remember all the names... anyway, here are some factors that I found that help with taking away blemishes:
1) Sun.  UV rays actually kill bacteria.  Too much is bad, but too little isn't great either.
2) pH!  Bacteria does well in alkaline environments, so use things that have sacylic(sp?) acid in them.  Really, it helps.
3) Don't stress!  I started this school year with clean skin, and then it went down hill.  Really hard classes, relationship problems... all that crap.  Try to relax, be yourself.  Self-esteem & confidence really helps, I swear it.
4) Wash your face a lot.  I dried my face out, though... didn't seem to help.  Ugh.  I hate acne!!!!!!!!!
5) Sweat.  Seriously, it cleans out your pores! Take hot showers, get really sweaty, then wash your face.  That's what saunas are for!
Well that's pretty much all I can think of... Hope it helps some of you out there with your problems!

You only get pimples if it is in your genes. I eat lots of chocolate and candy and I don't get acne. One thing though always keep your face clean and don't touch it when your hands are dirty. If you keep your hands clean than you'll keep your face clean too. Anyway avoid anything chocolates or anything that has lots of sugar that will help you reduce the acne.

I don't think that chocolate causes pimples for specificaly everyone, maybe some people have allergic reactions to it, likewise with other junk foods, or chemicals in certain other foods. maybe you shoould see which foods cause such breakouts and cut down on eating them, a technique i use to get rid of pimples on my face is by using rubbing alcohol, its drys out the pimple and they quickly vanish, this makes skin very dry so im sure to use very strong lotion after the pimple is gone. there are also various acne and pimple medications that some people might want to try to use. thanks, i hope this helps.

Ok, spots are a part of growing up, not everyone gets them because everyones skin is different. what you eat does not cause spots but eating fruit and veg gives you the vitamins and nutriants to help your skin.another thing, SMOKING DOES NOT GIVE YOU SPOTS!! everyone thinks they are getting spots because they are doing something wrong but its nothing to do with you. there are so many things that cause spots but the number one reason is hormones. as we grow up our whole body changes, causing it to go crazy, during puberty your hair gets oily, as does your skin, this happens inside your skin so washing constantly wont make them go away. spots are formed when your pores clog up with excess oil and sebum. dont worry, they WILL go away!!! even if your worried, go to your doctor and tell them you want something done!! i have them all over my face and im taking antibiotics and eating right. try garlic and ginger or green tea which has antioxidants. these all help. i hope you listen to me because i have heard all these crazy myths and no matter how much i want to believe its easy to get rid of spots...it isnt. give it time and you will be fine :)

pimples actually come up cos the skin is DRY (contrary to belief it's cos it's too oily).  When the skin is dry, the system's natural defense is to produce its own oils and secretions.  It then forms into pimples.  CHOCOLATES do not cause pimples directly.  Just use plenty of moisturiser, and maintain a healthy balance of fluids in your skin, then you wont ever have pimples

I strongly believe that greasy foods + foods high in fat (eg chocolate) DO contribute to acne.  When I go off chocolate, my face clears up.  Remember, EVERYONE is different. So,if eating certain foods cause acne, I suggest you to abstain from it, and see the great results!  So, stop asking people "Does eating this and that cause acne?" because trust me, no one is the same. Good Luck xoxo

White chocolate is more fattening then dark or normal chocolate.So if you love chocolate lay off the white but remember to wash your face,neck and back everyday and don't use any soap or clearasil because those adds are fakes and they just want to sell crap to people.anyways... wash your hands if you wanna touch your face,ummm... don't use gel or hair wax cause that causes spots on your forehead if you don't wash your hair.Also if you have oily hair then use soap before you use shampoo because it helps the shampoo wash away the dead cells and yer...have fun killing those pimples...   :D

Acne is hormonal.

Acne has nothing whatsoever to do with diet.

Acne is caused by hormone sensitive sebaceous glands becoming hypertophied and relatively obstructed with sebum(grease), there is a secondary inflammation which can aggravate the blocked gland. Propionobacterium acnes colonises the ducts, which is thought to be a secondary process rather than an infection. Antibiotic treatments are thought to help due to "anti-inflammatory" properties rather than as a bacteriacidal. Getting sweaty or applying creams which obstruct the ducts can exacerbate the acne. Oral isotretinoin (roaccutane) is the big gun against acne, all but eliminating it in 80% of cases, working by shrinking the sebaceous ducts, plus reducing sebum secretion. Pity it mutates babies, so a bit of a risk in women who become unintentionally inseminated. Anti-androgenic contraception (Dianette) can really help in young women, especially with premenstrual acne flare. er... and hit it hard to prevent scars. not much else important to say really... ...oh - nothing to do with sunlight either. So your Mum's remonition of "eat you greens and get outside for some fresh air" is completely inappropriate advice. ;-)

pimples known as acne is not caused by greasy food...it is caused by dirt, bacteria, and fat...if u eat more healthy food and plenty of water that can help take them away...though pimples are mostly caused by your hormones...which changes and causes these facial problems (acne)...just use a face scrub like apricot scrub or just a cream like natures cure...or you can also use the water and healthy food....also include excercise....insread of sitting in the couch and eating junk food!!

Chocolate doesn't cause acne. Experiments conducted at the University of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Naval Academy found that consumption of chocolate - even frequent daily dietary intake - had no effect on the incidence of acne. Professional dermatologists no longer link acne with diet.

If you are a guy, acne may start during adolescence as your body adjusts to becoming an adult. If you are a girl, your menstrual periods may trigger it. But acne may come from other causes too, such as:

* some drugs
* emotional problems
* steroids
* contraceptives
* tight clothing rubbing against your skin.


It is not always correct that chocolates, nuts, and fatty snacks cause acne, but some foods may make acne worse in some people. If you suspect that certain foods are making your acne worse, avoid them for a month or so and see if this helps.

If you have acne and you spend much time talking on the telephone, the phone may be causing some of your problems. Pressing the receiver against your skin can make acne break out above your ear or around your chin.

The only bad things chocolate causes are weight gain, higher blood sugar, and higher blood pressure. It can also keep some people awake. When I was a teenager, I was stupid enough to believe chocolate, fried foods, chips, and Coke would break out my face. It angers me that I denied myself those things when I was at the age where my metabolism would have allowed me to eat anything I wanted. My body mass index was only 12! I drank tons and tons of water because I was also stupid enough to believe that water would clear up my skin. No luck with that, either. Now that I'm older and really need water for my digestive system and kidneys, I can't tolerate it! The only things that helped me were Sumyacin and Dynacin. Don't give me this krap about "I don't want my child taking pills." Retin-A and over-the-counter creams are useless. Another myth: The harder and longer you scrub your face, the fewer breakouts you will get. Wrong. This will create more pimples. I was also stupid enough to believe that drinking lots of milk and eating tons of yogurt give you great skin. Wrong again. The hormones in the cow can end up in your face! Here are things that actually do trigger breakouts: Puberty, menstruation, hormone fluctations, stress, extreme emotions, sweat, oil-based cosmetics, dirty wash cloths, leaving on your make-up, scrubbing the face too hard, using exfoiliants or cleansers or soaps that are too harsh, using harsh creams such as Retin-A, dirty glasses, hair products especially if you have bangs, and dairy products.

I agree with the comment about dairy. I never seemed to have skin problems after eating chocolate/dairy as a teenager but when I got into my 20s, I had occasional outbreaks of acne. After keeping food diaries, I noticed that dairy products were making my face break out in huge zits. This included when I ate chocolate, due to the milk content in chocolate as well as ice-cream and cheese and greasy, fattening food.
I have now cut out all dairy and my skin has been pimple-free ever since.

Luckily, I can now buy dairy-free chocolate as an occasional treat which does not affect my skin at all.

I'm 39.  I eat chocolate.  I get pimples.  I stop eating chocolate.  They go away.  True.  I have found that chocolate things where the ingredients say "cocoa processed with alkali"  will NOT give me pimples.  Processing with alkali neutralizes something in the chocolate, I guess.   So I can eat a good humor bar, or hot chocolate, but not chocolate candy, or chocolate chips.

Hey, Okay. My opinion is that if you have pimples, wash your face daily but DO NOT use perfumed soaps it might only make it worse,but then again everyone has different reactions. I had pimples on my forehead so I started washing my face like 2 times a day, I used a soap that had Aloe Vera in it, and it really worked! Also I started drinking more spring water than Soda and stuff. I don't recommend Cleansers, I've spent over 30$ on them and not one of them worked for me. So all I have to say is to wash your face daily and drink more water than soda, and keep your hands away from your face   =)

If anyone is wondering "can chocolate cause spots" or "can coke cause spots" I would say YES, they do in SOME people, but not in others.

I can produce spots without fail when I drink fizzy drinks or have a lot of rich chocolate. 100% of the time. So I wish people who this doesn't happen to would stop telling others that's its impossible, just because its doesn't happen to them. Our bodies are all different, and we have different sensitivities.

If you are drinking coke and fizzy drinks, or eating a lot of chocolate you should really try giving them up for 2 weeks as a test and see how this affects your spots. If I'd known this earlier I would have saved myself years of pimples caused by chocolate and carbonated drinks! Best of luck to all!

If oil and yellowy stuff doesn't come out, and whatever it is that I scratched off did, are the things on my face still pimples? Btw, who has a T zone and a U zone of your face?

You all have your own ideas.  In fact I think that we may never find out the real cause. THERE IS NO CURE.  For some, some products will work out great for others it doesn't turn out the same.  As some of you have said (from reading your responses) that it can be caused by many factors wheather it be genetics, hormones or age.  The thing is you can't get rid of ACNE or just a few pimples with the flick of your wrist.  It takes time (remember saying everything heals with time) That is only if you don't just sit around and do nothing. You, yes you as a person have to put forth the effort to get somewhere.  "He who seeks shall find!' Of course it takes time with testing different ointments and creams but its true, keep your face clean and although it may not improve it, it certainly gives you some control of it not getting worse.  Some have suggested going on the PILL (one of my friends did that and she had beautiful skin after, she originally had pretty bad acne), then others have tried Pro Active (I know it's expensive, don't know much about it!), I'm personally using Differin Adapalene Cream. You have to take it with a tablet.  For some it will work straight away, or it will take from half a year to a year.  Depends upon you as a person...Oh yeah it is a darn good idea to read up on this product.  While using it your skin will react because it is bringing everything to the surface (namely the bacteria). I've only just started this treatment but if you keep logged onto this site for another few months I will be sure to let you know. Oh yeah this whole issue about chocolate being a main cause.  Some say it does good for you, but i thought it was interesting.... think about where the milk comes from.  It comes from cows right?  So lets say the cow is pregnant and is full of different hormones while she is feeding her baby.  So as humans we aren't supposed to take in the same hormones that a cow has. It could all be completely wrong..maybe is...but I'velearnt, that as a person, don't make a decision straight away.  TEST to see if is right! All I can say is that I've been eating a hell of a lot of chocolate (I never really do)  but what i called pimples just on my face and back became alot worse.  now I have it on my chest.  So if my advice is anything good watch what you eat but more importantly have a balance) there is nothing worse than becoming extreme.  Life just sucks that way!  Also keep your face clean (if you are using an ointment that significantly dries out your skin, moisture your skin) I did and it helped alot. I looked alive for once.  I suggest a really good one is from a shop called the Body Shop I think it called Jo Joba (its thick so it is to be applied twice).  Patience is the next step,  with pimples you are forced to be patient when you've done all that is in your power.  Although you may think that everyone is looking at you, they are and they aren't.  I guess it depends how observant they are.  But it is normally the latter that they aren't looking.  Though there are occasionally those 'critical' people out there who tease an laugh at you well I say and quote, "the senseless one lacks sense!" Just know as a your own person that you are doing everything in your power right? Just keep your confidence up and never forget to Smile, a smile is always infectious and mostly likely will attract others. My dad says to me that you can only do your best nothing more or less! Those who cannot accept that as enough must have the standard of perfection. Last of all many people, I personally think underestimate the power of exercise. (Ask the benefits of it from your doctor) I have been inactive for about two or more years.  Sometimes I try to get out but than hold myself back.  It is yourself that is the only boundary, that is for most cases. It's always good to go with someone, pick a sport that you can enjoy.  When I remember being in a good routine I had never felt better. In fact I had more energy than I needed. If you become to tense at night than it is good to do it in the morning or early at night.  Try to avoid strenuous exercise before nine and eat very light meals.  I didn't need to loose any weight or anything but i think no matter how overweight or stick thin you are...everyone needs to be active and not be stuck in front of the computer, TV constantly or turning to junk food as a comfort thing.  In fact I feel determined to try a way better diet, (treat yourself to a treat once a week.)  In time you will loose your craving for the wrong sort of food, you will still like it but you won't be dying if you can't have it.  It teaches you balance, moderation, etc.  Give it a go and see what it does for you!  You'll never EVER know if you don't try!  You may sit around all your years and never discover the good benefits.  Thing is none of us are perfect so we will be like a graph having its ups and downs.  Thing is to keep a good routine, and it is sure to become easier.  I've always wanted to have a healthy glow about me, inside and out.  No matter what you look like e.g. plain or pretty you are doing yourself a justice by looking after yourself.  Your bound to feel more whole as a person and than you may feel that (if you have depression) that you will find the energy to help others.  True is many take youth for granted, the aftereffects come well and truly when you age.  Though rarely some are blessed by genetics and live a good life. But I think everyone has the potential to and the power in there hands to make a difference.  The plain truth is I'm no expert but I find it easy to express what I feel because I'm going have gone through these things.  :) Hoped this helped.  Lastly some people get an huge overload of information and just shut down.  I say keep it simple. Simple is always best.  Follow the basics, Test and see.  Thing is many go through having bad skin.  It's not gonna be part of you forever.  You do have the POWER and freewill as a person to decide on these things.  Procrastinating usually is the main cause I find for not getting anything darn.  I think for excercise there is no magical answer the answer is that you have to JUST PUSH YOURSELF OUT THERE AND DO IT!  That is the only answer.  Sometimes it may take the encouragement of others.  All the best for all of you out there.  Life isn't easy and everyone's journey is different.  But having ACNE or pimples isn't the end of the world. If it is for you than think that you are lucky compared to a person in a wheel chair.  At least you can walk, run and do all that. Think most would kill to be able to do that have free movement. Meditating on such things gains appreciation and helps you to cope with the problem.  Anyway my battery is almost dead...time to recharge.. :(  Hope I didn't sound like a know-at-all because I don't think I would be one if I took the time to read some of your posted, emailed answers.  Would I???

   When i'm on holiday and going swimming in the beach, 2 days and i see improvements. A week, and you can barely see them. But too bad i live in London. So the good old natural sun and seawater did it 4 me.

Also do not pop them, it makes more and don't wash your face with cold water when you are sweating.

chocolate does not give you pimples, zits, black heads, nothing like that.  the only thing that causes that is the oil and bacteria on your face and the oil, bacteria, dirt and all that other good stuff that gets transferred to you face when something touches it.  The thing to do it wash your hands, keep them clean as possible.  Refrain as much as possible from touching your face and dont let others touch your face.  Wash your face twice a day.  When you wake up and when you go to bed.  Remove make-up promptly.  And another thing, dont stress so much.  Your hormones affect your face too.  So chill.

I am a 21 year old female who is sick of the bumps that pop up on my face everytime I eat chocolate. I don't care about reports that say it's not possible, it is for me and other people out there that suffer the same. I rather cut chocolate out of my life completely than deal with the results. Plain and simple, my face will be clear and I will break down and eat a chocolate bar or something... the next day or so I am broken out. I don't need to do research or anything, the results are on my damn face!

In response to Crystal, chocolate is NOT healthy! Yes, it does release some chemical in your brain that makes you feel good (not quite sure of the name right now) but it can cause some people pimples and it makes you put on weight! Putting on weight doesn't prevent heart disease, it contributes to it.

Chocolate, crisps and chips and other greasy foods do not cause spots (acne vulgaris).
The bacteria that causes them is propioniumbacterium acnes - these play an essential part in causing acne. Also the keratin surface cells block the pores of the skin thats what causes whiteheads and blackheads. A good thing to do is consult your doctor for treatment if you have tried treatment for about 8 weeks. try and see if your doctor can refer you to a skin specialist.

Spots just come from not cleansing your face properly, your diet may contribute to it slightly if your eating all the wrong foods and your skin isn't getting enough 'good stuff'.
If you do suffer from bad skin I suggest using a good tea tree face wash/oil. There's an Australian range that's really good. It kills the bacteria.

Treatment: The treatment of acne by the administration of salve or ointment does not serve any purpose. They only suppress the action of the sebaceous glands temporarily. In nature cure, the main emphasis is on diet and certain water applications. To begin with the patient should resort to all-fruit diet for about a week. In this regimen, there should be three meals a day, consisting of fresh juicy fruits, such as apples, pears, grapes, grape-fruit, pineapple and peaches. Citrus fruits, bananas, dried, stewed or tinned fruits should not be taken. Unsweetened lemon or plain water, either hot or cold, should be drunk and nothing else. During this period, warm -water enema should be taken daily to cleanse the bowels and all other measures adopted to eradicate constipation.
After a week of all fruit diet, the patient can gradually adopt a well-balanced diet. Emphasis should be on raw foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouted seeds, raw nuts, and whole grain cereals, especially millet and brown rice. Further shorter periods on the all-fruits for three days, or so may be necessary at a monthly interval till the condition of the skin improves. Strict attention to diet is essential for recovery. Starchy, protein and fatty foods, should be restricted. Meats, sugar, strong tea or coffee, condiments, pickles, refined and processed foods should all be avoided, as also soft drinks, candies, ice cream and products made with sugar and white flour. lots of water is real good too..

I can guarantee you that chocolate does cause pimples...i don't eat chocolate everyday, but i occasionally get cravings for it and last week i ate about 5 chocolates a day everyday and a few days later my face was full of pimples, my face is always clear, i don't suffer with bad skin, i used to when i was younger, but that was probably because i used to stuff my face with CHOCOLATE everyday!!!

its called puberty and you get acne..sweets can play a roll in getting acne but it dosent act on its own...if you want clear skin wash your 3 times a day with acnesolution and the thing that really helps is drinking alot of water...it all depends on the person though

All I know is that my face was hamburger in high school and I ate chocolate all the time.  After high school I stopped and my face cleared up.  To this day my face is clean and clear of pimples but every time I eat chocolate I break out like mad.  If I don't eat any more it clears up.  Smart people are idiots.  They put two and two together and get 6 because it can't be four they ruled that out yesterday.  Just because one person maybe genetically different enough for it to not effect them doesn't mean anything.  Different body's process things different.  It could very well be that the people who don't experience pimples from chocolate have a diet that perfectly offsets the effects.

pimples are made when bacteria enters your pores and oil is made to cleanse the pore, so unless your eating a chocoate bar from a dumpster your fine.by the way oil and grease can be absorbed by the pores too.

I also get spots from eating chocolate! I was listening to the whole "chocolate causes acne is a myth" and I believed it so I continued eating chocolate. The result is massive acne breakouts for years! Until I stopped eating for a month. The same thing happens to my mom, she's 60 and after eating chocolate she always gets spots within a day or two. She can tell it's the chocolate and not the milk because she rarely eats chocolate but drinks milk every day and never has spots until she eats even a small amount of chocolate.
I think the scientists should re-consider this "myth" again...

there is a huge connection between your skin, and your diet.  Trust me, I've had experience.  Good oils that won't give you pimples are (organic and/or first cold press) olive oil, coconut oil, hempseed oil, grapeseed oil, sesame oil, and flaxseed oil. Eat a lot of fruits and veggies, and make sure they're organic, and NO DAIRY at all. Moderation if you must.
