Valentine's Day is coming and so is all that good chocolate candy. We all love chocolate. In fact, October 28 is National Chocolate Day! What if I told you that it is good for you too, inside and out? I am here to tell you that the “chocolate gives me acne” warning is a myth, my friends! Although what you do and eat does play a factor in your skin's condition, eating chocolate is not a cause of acne. No foods have been proven to cause acne. The cause of acne is one (or a combination) of the following factors: overactive oil glands, heredity, hormones, and clogged pores.
