National Survey on Acne
Face Reality surveyed over 1,000 people in the U.S. to learn how acne has impacted their life. We learned that acne has a profound effect on one’s mental health. No one should feel ashamed of their skin. We believe in embracing your skin—on the good days, flareups, and every day in-between.
Acne Isn’t Just Skin Deep

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. Any given year, 50 million Americans across all ages experience acne.*
*According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association.
Skin Health is Mental Health
