If you live in a rural area, you're probably used to having to wait weeks to see a dermatologist. It may seem normal to you, but the delay is actually because of an alarming shortage of dermatologists in this country. Recent studies have estimated that there are about 3.3 derms per every 100,000 people.

Now, with nonessential doctor's offices closed across the country, the need for virtual access is higher than ever. Luckily (and because self-diagnosing serious conditions such as melanoma or skin cancer is never advisable) you don't have to wait weeks on weeks to talk to a doctor about a breakout you're having right now. In fact, there are a few hardworking apps that can empower you to smartly treat your skin at home.

Check out a handful of our favorites, ahead.
