Are the physical symptoms of acne causing you psychological distress? We live in picture-perfect times where there is a lot of pressure on us to look our best at all times. Acne, especially if it’s noticeable, can sometimes affect our self-esteem and even cause anxiety or depression. Most of us have experienced the odd red spot on our skin and most of the time, it’s gone away (albeit after causing some annoyance). But when do we know that it’s not one to take lightly? At which point do we think that we can’t address our acne on our own or with the well-meaning advice of friends and need to go see a skin specialist? Here are a few guidelines to help you make up your mind.
