Hi there,
We are a PR agency looking for a mum who has a teenage daughter aged between 16-18 years that suffers from acne.
We would like to offer the mum the chance to put herself in her daughter's shoes for the day by having her skin 'made up' with spots/ problem skin using the help of a professional make up artist.
We will then film the chosen mum to highlight the emotional and social effects acne can cause.
The film will be used as part of a lifestyle and beauty press campaign.
The mum will be rewarded with gift vouchers for taking part and the daughter will receive free treatments by a leading specialist dermatology clinic.
If you think you foot the bill, please get in touch!

London PR Lady, do you think acne only has a social and emotional effect on girls? What about young men?

Do you think mothers have forgotten what it was like to be a teenager?

Do you think we don't understand the emotional and social effects of acne?

Do you think we can't empathise with our children?

This is so patronising!

And what about mums or indeed any adult in general who still suffer from acne?
Do you think they don't know about the social and emotional effects?

Oh for God sake. Teenager of both sexes often have menopausal mothers and one of the side effects of menopause is hormonal spots. So yeah - I know exactly what it's like. I don't need a condescending PR campaign to teach me to 'empathise' with my teenage son.

What's the point of this? Acne is upsetting and debilitating? Wow.
