Does eating chocolate really make
you have more zits?
Fortunately for all of you
choco-lovers, chocolate itself isn’t linked to acne. This is the
same for any junk food like French fries, ice cream or chips. No one
food can be held responsible for those annoying zits that pop up out
of nowhere, but your overall diet can be to blame.
Ask yourself this question: Do you find
yourself munching on unhealthy snacks throughout the day? If your
answer to that is yes, than your diet is most likely one of the
culprits behind your acne. Switching up your diet to include whole
foods like raw fruits and veggies and replacing unhealthy snacks with
good-for-you munchies will help you banish those bumps.
When it comes to acne, there are some
guidelines you should follow to keep your face lookin’ fresh:
Wash your face day and night to
unclog pores and zap oil across your T-zone.
Eat a nutritious diet. Your
favorite indulgences are fine in moderation, but instead of always
reaching for the cookie jar, try snacking on fruits and veggies, and
eating well-balanced meals.
Relax. Stress can be a huge
factor of acne. Instead of worryin’ about the big zit you just
discovered, try to relax (and dab on some acne spot treatment). If
you panic, your bod will go into stress-mode, and this could make the
pimple worse, or create new ones. Yuck!
