Understanding Acne By The Numbers

This infographic is intended to increase the awareness about acne by looking at it from a different angle – the numbers behind it.

Acne is the 8th most common skin disorder on the planet and in the US, it climbed up to rank number 1. Reason for these high numbers compared to 3rd world countries are most likely to be found in our lifestyles such as diets and continuous stress exposure in the job but also in environmental influences like pollution.

Another alarming fact that should let us question our lifestyle but also reinforce us to support people with acne is that in the long-run acne can result in severe psychological consequences and social withdrawal.
