Skin to live in

Have you ever had a bad skin day? How did it make you feel, self-conscious, embarrassed, as if you just wanted to hide away? Now imagine that every day was a bad skin day. 

We believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their skin, proud not embarrassed, but sadly, that is often not how it is:

• Severe skin conditions have been shown to have a similar impact to a sufferer's quality of life as cancer, heart disease, arthritis, type 2 diabetes and depression (1,2)

It’s time to take a new look at skin conditions and stop them from holding anyone back. Join us and help make a change to the lives of people with skin conditions.
