How Makeup Can Affect People Dealing With Anxiety and Depression

Emma was 13 years old when she realized she had issues with depression and anxiety. “I spent a long time just trying to become diagnosed, so that I could receive assistance, and considering my age, I faced a lot of hesitancy from medical professionals before I was able to receive help,” she says. Now, at age 18, Emma isn’t shy about sharing her own experience with others. She has a long-standing relationship with a therapist, and she’s discovered some coping mechanisms that actually work for her. One of the most significant — and perhaps surprising — happens to be makeup.
