Next time after you eat or drink something sugary try to do some physical activity to minimize the effects.

Jordan19: It may take two weeks to form but apparently sugar accelerates the appearance of zits.

It takes a few weeks for a comedo to fully form, but certain foods can apparently cause the inflamatory response that makes a pimple seem like it "suddenly" appears.

Well, since it was a Snickers bar... It could be the:

-chocolate

-trans fat

-sugar

-dairy (if extremely sensitive to dairy)

-peanuts

It'd be hard to rule out one thing unless you know they've caused you troubles in the past..

Im allergic to chocolate and coffee. It could be the peanuts that make you break out b/c so many ppl are allergic to them too.

I am allergic to sugar i think. It took ages for me to finally realise that when i ate sugary foods like chocolate, i broke out like mad!

It was after eating 2 slices of carrot cake one day and breaking out madly the next that i finally made the connection.

i now eat nothing chocolatey, no biscuits, no drinks apart from water, nothing sugary.

And voila, no breakouts.

I occasionally get the odd zit, but there is sugar in everything, can't avoid it, and so this is why i still get a zit now and again.

I have a sweet tooth so its been really hard to cut out choc. But i had to do it for my skins sake!

Yes, im 100% it was only 2 and a half hours!

The body reacts quickly in response to all foods. Im sensitive to certain foods because of heredity. It's just hard to find a pattern for some reason. Prob. because I eat a variety of food, so I dont know which one exactly caused the breakout/reaction.

I notice whenever I eat certain foods that have alot of sugar in them I break out prity fast. It just depends on the person.

I think I broke out the worst ever when I had a frapachino. It took only one day for a bunch of pimples to pop up.

Im not sure if chocolate makes me break out because well I am obsessed with it and eat it at least once everyday. I dont break out every single day though. I do know that bananas make me break out and there is another forum on this site about that.
