The Psychological Effects Of Acne

Acne can range from a few stubborn blackheads on the nose to seriously disfiguring cysts on the face, chest, and back. Although acne is often talked about as a temporary nuisance and something you “just grow out of” what people aren’t talking about is how big of a psychological impact acne has on teens and adults. Acne can cause social withdrawal, low self-esteem, and even depression. Some teenagers may refuse to go to school because they are so embarrassed by their acne. Acne can be brought on by hormones, genetics, stress, and even certain medications. Not only teenagers get acne, you can have acne from puberty all the way through menopause!
