More than 80 per cent of the UK population suffers from acne at some point in their lives. But for teens the condition can seem so serious that it leads to low confidence, low self esteem, shyness and even depression.

The recently founded Acne Academy has undertaken the largest survey of its kind in the UK to provide a valuable insight into just how teenagers with acne are perceived by adults and their peers.

The results reveal the extent to which teenagers with acne are negatively perceived and aims to highlight the long term psychological impact the skin condition can have if it is not managed properly.

Dr Hilary Jones from The Acne Academy and parenting expert Judy Reith will be on hand today at 4.30pm to answer all your questions.
