Being bullied is not as rare as you may think, as the Anti-Bullying Week campaign reminds us all.
The Annual Bullying Survey 2014 in partnership with 36 schools and colleges across the UK has found that 45% of young people experience bullying before the age of 18.
Of course, these days bullying doesn’t only happen at school. As technology has now become part of most teenagers’ lives, bullies can target individuals by text messages and via social media such as facebook and twitter. Avoiding your bullies is just that little more difficult in 2014.
Appearance is the number one reason for being picked on; 40% of respondents reported being bullied for personal appearance. Body shape, size and weight are the main physical features that can make you a target.
The Annual Bullying Survey didn’t investigate the link between acne and being bullied, which is why we have set up our own survey to explore this a bit further. To make sure the results of our Acne Survey are statistically relevant, we would need as many entries as possible.
If you would like to help us to gain more insight into how acne can affect your daily life, then please enter our survey here:
As a little thank you, each entrant will be entered into a competition to win a free month’s supply of help: clear skin.
