Not everyone realizes it, but acne can come with some serious side effects. Studies show that a startling number of people who struggle with it develop depression -- and some even consider suicide.

According to Seventeen, "A major study says waking up to severe breakouts daily may make you two to three times more likely to develop depression."

Clinical psychotherapist Matt Traube told Seventeen, "Skin disorders tend to isolate. When you already feel hopeless and embarrassed, that can only intensify those feelings."

The British scientists also found that almost 60 percent of people with acne experienced verbal abuse. Another 20 percent apparently had a relationship end because of their acne.
