The Link Between Depression and Acne in Teens

A recent article in Time magazine, entitled Teen Acne and Depression: Can Mood Worsen Skin?, explores the relationship between a teenager's well-being/mood, and his or her skin. I have heard often and from many different people that stress and depression cause acne, but I have rarely seen articles or studies which highlight the relationship. While more research must be done, this article may be an interesting read for those of you who have teenagers with acne and/or depression, OR for those of you who may have once been a depressed teen, OR if you are a teenager currently experiencing depression or acne.
