In brief: Not really

Acne is usually a condition caused by excess oil and gland secretion of skin along with pore buildup and plugging-often triggered by stress and increase in hormones in body.
It is a myth that greasy food and chocolate cause acne but they are not that healthy anyway and should be minimized in your diet.
