Mental health and your skin

Our physical and mental health are closely linked, so it’s no surprise that our skin can have an impact on the way we think and feel about ourselves, and how we interact with others. 

The effect that acne can have on the appearance of our skin can leave us feeling upset and distressed, so we want to provide you with as much information and support to help you through this. 

Below, we’ve listed some useful websites with acne-specific guidance and support. If you feel you need to speak to someone straight away about how you’re feeling, the organisations listed below can help. 

The Acne Support Charity explains that as many as one in four of us who experience acne will feel a change in our mental state. Remember, you’re not alone. The Acne Support Charity has a wealth of resources – such as their Guide To Emotional Support to download as a first port of call.
