The research results found that the probability of developing depression was 18.5% for acne patients and 12 % for those without acne. Therefore, a new studyshowing that people who suffer from acne are more likely to develop depression didn't come as a huge surprise.

The researchers used data from a major primary care database in the United Kingdom, collected between 1986 and 2012 (The Health Improvement Network - THIN), to investigate the link between the skin disease and mental health.

For this study, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, researchers followed 130,000 people with acne and 1.7 million people without acne, tracking their physical and mental health for over 15 years.

The risk was 63 percent higher compared to individuals without acne, the study says. the researchers concluded that acne patients are at a higher risk of depression.
