We interviewed young people with a range of experiences, including those who had successful treatment for their acne as well as those who were undergoing current treatments at the time of the interview and those who had chosen not to have medical treatments. Not everyone interviewed had acne on their faces as the condition can affect other parts of the body, such as the back and chest.
The people we talked to were given the choice about the format their interview appears on the website. Some people chose for their interview clips to be featured as audio or text only, rather than video.
