No.: Despite the millions of patients with acne who love chocolate and greasy foods there is no evidence of a relationship. There is a potential but weak relationship with milk consumption.

No: Acne is caused by bacteria getting trapped in the skin. Eating chocolate does not cause acne, but could make your skin oilier.
