Since the age of 10 I have suffered with acne. It has been a long and hard journey; after suffering with depression and anxiety I am now in a better place, much more confident and I've accepted the way my skin looks. I've managed to get where I am with no one's help, but I know how much easier my life would have been if I'd had the right support.

Suffering from skin conditions can have a huge impact on your mental & physical health and even though my acne can't be compared to more serious conditions, I understand what it is like to be self conscious all the time and struggling to accept the way I am.

I am looking to spread awareness on the effect that acne has on our mental health through social media and I thought it would be a really good idea to fundraise money to help improve the lives of people suffering from different skin conditions. Sofia Stelin
