Em Ford has made a very powerful You Tube video in which she shows her skin un made up and the nasty comments she received on Social Media about it, then she applies make up and displays both the positive and negative responses she received once her acne was covered up. The video has attracted 1.5 million responses and is very courageous, given that Em is a beautiful girl, with or without her make up.
Adult acne is very common in young adult women and is often treatment resistant. It is also a hidden problem as women with adult acne become very skilled at disguising it with make up.
My heart goes out to her and every other person who is plagued by breakouts and I feel very honoured to be able to help with this huge problem every day.
