Going on Your Acne Journey With the Face Forward Community

Going on Your Acne Journey With the Face Forward Community

June is Acne Awareness month. While acne is a common concern1, especially among teenagers, there are many myths and misconceptions surrounding it. While most of us rely on the internet for quick answers, there’s no guarantee that we are getting the right information or solutions.

Celebrating Acne Awareness month allows us to shine a light on how different people experience acne. This includes the various methods and medications they have tried to address bad acne. It’s also a good time to learn about the truth of how to deal with acne and defy common myths about acne that persist and prevent people from getting the care they need.

Face Forward From Acne

Facing the ups and downs of acne care is best done together with a community who understands what you are going through, like Galderma’s Face Forward From Acne group.

Support groups give you the opportunity to share your feelings, coping strategies, and useful information for dealing with the condition. Taking part in such a group may help you feel less lonely, distressed, and more empowered to understand and cope with your condition2.

Face Forward From Acne seeks to empower people with acne by providing them with science-based solutions and opening the door to expert care. On their platform, you can hear the stories of people who have dealt with acne throughout their lives. You may also access discussions by experts and doctors about the best way to care for your skin.
