Well I work with chocolate and the real dark chocolate can be very beneficial for you, as it's extremely high in anti-oxidants(unless you react badly to cocoa mass). I only asked because it may actually be the sugar, vegetable fat, milk solids or soya letchins that are breaking you out. I thought chocolate was a trigger for me, I've been eating it all week and no reaction, nothing. Just throwing it out there.

It's the sugar you should avoid. Low sugar dark chocolate s a good thing for most people.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Dark chocolate is filled with antioxidants and is great to eat in moderation. I love indulging in 85% or 90% cacao sometimes. Unsweetened cocoa powder mixed with stevia and almond milk is also a wonderful antioxidant-rich treat! (Healthy hot chocolate.)
