Interesting article, especially "This study highlights an important link between skin disease and mental illness,” and “Overall, the 15-year study period showed that the probability of developing depression was 18.5% in clients who suffered from acne.”
I have an unprofessional theory. I question if the acne or skin disease is the cause of the depression, and I am inclined to think that the acne is a symptom of already present depression.
I really enjoyed this article too. I remember growing up with some old friends who experienced severe acne and it really did effect their mental state.
I agree having bad acne just causing stress and all kinds of other problems for a lot of people
