Acne Representation In Media

Recommended Posts

Do you wish there were more people/characters who have acne in tv/movies? and these characters being given normal roles? because a pretty big portion of the population has acne. I also think if this did happen hopefully people wouldn't be judged so harshly on their acne and it would be seen as something that is apart of life. I doubt this would ever happen though since the media is so obsessive over perfect skin.

Yeah, I agree but like you said, the media is obsessive over perfect skin. I don't blame them though, because it does enhance the person's appearance and keeps people from talking about their skin.

Yeah i know, they tend to get airbrushed out or hidden by lighting and makeup.

Its nothing to be ashamed of really, but the media make us think it. Then when it is pointed out, its done in a hurtful and derogatory way so we fell disgusting and ugly.

I know some actors have scars though, but never active cysts or anything.
