- anorexia/bulimia - if a person feels their skin is horrible and they can't do anything about it [in their mind], they start obsessing over another aspect of their looks - their body weight, which they can actually control, thus giving them satisfaction and/or release from the emotional turmoil of acne

Whoa, quoted for undeniable truth.

I second that. I've finally moved on to looking at my hideous body instead xD I'm not anorexic, but am finally noticing I should lose 15 pounds ^^

PS: Here is another theory:
Fat people are less likely to have acne because the fat blocks the toxins from escaping through the skin?
Skinny people with a fast metabolism maybe have to be more careful of their diets, because they would be more prone to eating junk food?
-I know even though I always ate healthy meals, I would still gourge on candy :| Although now I've been trying to make the change the past 2 months. ^^;;;
