Exploring experiences of adults living with acne


I'm conducting a research project exploring the emotional experiences of adults living with acne for my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. My hope is that the research will inform ways professionals respond when working with people with acne.

I'm posting information about the study here, as I'm wondering whether anybody here might be able to take part. I'm looking for people to participate who:

• currently have acne;

• are receiving treatment for Acne Vulgaris (commonly known as 'Acne') from their GP or Dermatologist;

• are aged 18 years old or over.

Participation will involve answering a series of questionnaires online which should take approximately 20 minutes. By taking part you can enter yourself into a prize draw where you could win £20, £30 or £50 of Amazon vouchers. Please click on this link to be directed to more information about the study and to access the questionnaires:

The survey will be closed on 29th February 2016.

If you don't meet the criteria but you know of other people that might, it'd be great if you could help me spread the word about my study by sharing it's facebook page (widely, rather than to specific people) and/or retweeting the link or following @AcneStudy2015.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Can anyone tell me if tis is good for acne? my friend suggested this ointment but I am not sure if it is ideal for dry skin. Any help would be very welcome.
