The everyday trials of acne 11 March 2015 A survey conducted by the British Skin Foundation (BSF) reveals that more than half of acne sufferers (57%) have experienced verbal abuse from people they know due to their skin condition. The survey further revealed that 95% of acne sufferers said the condition had an impact on their daily lives and 63% said it affected their self- confidence. More than 2,000 sufferers participated in the survey, to allow BSF to gain insight into what acne sufferers go through during their everyday lives. Almost a third of sufferers said they had received unfair treatment at work or by staff while in education and over 40% said they had been bullied due to their condition. Alarmingly, the survey showed that over 20% had considered or attempted suicide due to their acne.
