MORRISTOWN, N.J., May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --Have you ever skipped an event because of a skin imperfection that made you feel self-conscious? If so, you're not alone. A new survey from the No.1 doctor and pharmacist recommended scar brand, Mederma, has found that more than half of Americans would skip events altogether (pre-pandemic) instead of going through the hassle of dealing with skin issues and insecurities. In fact, three in five respondents agreed that their skin has a big impact on their self-confidence and mental health.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness month this May and the brand's new "You Are More Than Your Scar" campaign, Mederma is revealing the ways in which perceived physical skin imperfections like acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks, can affect mental health, self-confidence and anxiety.

"When we were creating our new 'You Are More Than Your Scar' campaign, it was inspiring to see that every scar has a story, and more importantly, people often fight silent battles with their marks and scars," said HRA Pharma America, President, Bradley Meeks. "This survey has shown that skin insecurities affect everyone and feeling confident in the skin you're in has a connection to mental health."

While the survey of 2,000 American adults revealed that skin imperfections have kept people from seeing family, going to birthday parties and even weddings, the survey also uncovered that some respondents already embrace their scars or have started to accept their insecurities proving we are more than our scars.

Check out the Mederma "You Are More Than Your Scar" survey results below and what they reveal about Americans and their skin insecurities.

About MedermaScars are a visible part of our past. Whether there's a meaningful story behind them or not, we don't always want them on show. The prying questions, the retelling of the same tale; or much worse the silent judgment.

At Mederma, we believe we all are more than our scars our lives go deeper than what one can see on the surface. That's why Mederma Scar products contain a UNIQUE TRIPLE ACTION FORMULA that doesn't just sit on the surface, but penetrates beneath the skin to visibly reduce the appearance of scars.
