Here are some factors that don’t usually play a role in acne:
- Heredity: With the exception of very severe acne, most people do not have the problem exactly as their parents did. Almost everyone has some acne at some point in their life.
- Food: Parents often tell teens to avoid pizza, chocolate, greasy and fried foods, and junk food. While these foods may not be good for overall health, they don’t cause acne or make it worse. Although some recent studies have implicated milk and pure chocolate in aggravating acne, these findings are very far from established.
- Dirt: “Blackheads” are oxidized oil, not dirt. Sweat does not cause acne and is produced by entirely separate glands in the skin. On the other hand, excessive washing can dry and irritate the skin.
- Stress: Some people get so upset by their pimples that they pick at them and make them last longer. Stress, however, does not play much of a direct role in causing acne.

There seems to be no relationship between anemia and acne.
What’s the Truth About Chocolate and Acne?
There is no overwhelming evidence that diet plays a major role in acne. However, there are certain Neolithic cultures that seem to produce acne-free individuals as they transition to adulthood. Exactly how much is due to genetics and how much is due to diet is conjectural. If you think a food is causing problems, avoid it.
