Does chocolate cause acne?
It’s a question generations of teenagers and adults have asked when faced with an outburst of angry, red spots. Many would assert that chocolate is the culprit, while others maintain that food can’t be linked to the appearance of your skin. Let’s clear a few things up.

Every part of the skin is, like the rest of the body, made from the nutrients you eat and since all the systems of the body are linked, your systemic health can certainly affect your skin. Poor gut health can produce breakouts, zinc deficiency leads to scarring, vitamin C deficiency can cause easy bruising, the list goes on.

My devotion to natural health developed alongside an almost equally strong devotion to chocolate, without compromising my health or the clarity of my skin.
The catch? You have to get the good stuff.
