WHAT ARE THE EMOTIONAL EFFECTS OF ACNE?

When people have acne, they can experience low self-esteem, social withdrawal, and depression.  Some carry this negative emotional baggage with them throughout their lives. Even mild acne can contribute to low self-esteem, self-consciousness, and poor body image.  For adults, acne can be especially frustrating as adults are also dealing with skin aging concerns such as visible pores, fines lines and wrinkles, dryness and dull looking skin tone.
