Does your mood affect acne? like lets say you are happy, will your skin look better? My derm says stress can cause acne to appear so maybe being happy can help it :pray::D

I believe certain hormones are released when you are stressed, sad, angry, etc. And since hormones are likely to play a role in acne, I would say yes; acne can be influenced by your emotions. The mind/body connection is pretty powerful.

Quoted for truth.

To the topic creator, I don't think your skin will look different on a day to day basis if one day you're happy the next depressed and so on. But if for a few weeks time you've been really depressed and stressed out, then it can definitely take its toll on your skin.
