In a ground-breaking study examing the connection between acne and depression, The British Journal of Dermatology found that acne sufferers showed a ‘63% higher risk of major depression than individuals without acne.’ (Just ask any teen who has bad acne and they’ll confirm this.)
The ‘no-surprise’ study does emphasize the importance of mental health screenings and getting teens therapy if needed. It’s tough being that age without constant break-outs.
Peace Out Skincare, makers of the popular Peace Out Acne Serum, (our review) launched an ‘Acne, Unfiltered’ campaign with real people, real stories and real solutions in hopes of changing how we think of ourselves, talk to ourselves and talk to others.
You’re not alone.
