New research reveals the UK's acne hotspots

We have all been, or know someone who is, affected by acne. Whether it’s a hormonal breakout or a more stubborn chronic case, living with spots can be painful both physically and mentally. 

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the United Kingdom leading to 3.5 million visits to primary care every year. But, it does not affect people evenly throughout the nation. 

In fact - and interestingly - Superdrug carried out a study into the varying levels of acne prevalence, and the results reveal key acne triggers, trends and factors that contribute to bad skin.
