From The Skin Guru: Acne Leads to Stress and Low Self-Esteem
On her Yahoo blog, my favorite dermatologist, Leslie Baumann, M.D. (a.k.a. "The Skin Guru") details a study commissioned by Retin-A Micro Pump and conducted by Harris Interactive.
Interestingly, it seems only 18 percent of adult respondents had ever seen a derm for acne treatment. They have the tools to help, people!! And even if your insurance doesn't cover it, it's a good investment if you have truly horrible acne.
If you have moderate acne, I recommend checking out The Cosmetic Cop Beautypedia (my skin-care bible) for Paula Begoun's "Best Products" recommendations. She provides completely un-biased recommendations based on years and years (and years) of research.
