According to a recent survey, more than half of teens (59%) said that they would be willing to stay off Facebook for a year if they could get rid of their acne forever! What’s more – 13% would actually pick one of their parents as a prom date to be zit-free for the rest of their lives!
June marks the first-ever National Acne Awareness Month – the perfect time to help teens take control of their acne. There are so many myths surrounding acne. Some people think that people with acne don’t wash their faces and/or eat poorly. But the truth is, even the cleanest and healthiest of us can be prone to getting pimples and zits! In fact, acne is a medical condition that can be treated, and has little to do with diet or cleanliness habits.
The AARS, with support from Galderma Laboratories, has developed a special announcement to educate teens on how to take control of their acne: to inform everyone on ways to take action when acne takes a hold of their lives. If you or anyone you know has acne, please take a moment to read this.
