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.

Alarmingly, the survey showed that over 20% had considered or attempted suicide due to their acne.
