National Acne Positivity Day - September 1


On September 1st, National Acne Positivity Day spreads a message of acceptance and self-love while putting our best face forward.

As many of us know, we judge our appearance more harshly than we do others’. Often times, we allow outside point of view to affect our confidence based on our appearance. There are days, where we judge each blemish and mark. Acne is a universal skin concern and is the number one reason to consult a dermatologist.

The day encourages us to let go of the stigma associated with acne and take time to love ourselves for who we are. While our skin can make us feel vulnerable, we don’t have to give it power over us. Acne may annoy, frustrate, and hinder us; however, acne is a challenge like any other, one that we can overcome.

HOW TO OBSERVE #AcnePositivityDay

Put your best face forward. Whether you like a bare, no-nonsense look or prefer a glamorous you, share your beautiful skin with confidence. Embrace the face you have and share it with the world. Share your struggles and your successes. Give a shout out to friends who’ve adopted a positive attitude about their skin – those Acne Positivists. We love them because they make us believe we can do it, too. And we should! Celebrate your skin – every blemish, pimple, zit – all the ways we describe acne.
