When you want to become a model, many insecurities hit you. Am I tall enough? Can I be a model at my age? Am I too short? Many people also wonder if they can become a model with acne. So if this is something you are asking yourself, keep reading this post to find out the answer.

What is acne?

Acne is a skin condition that happens when hair follicles under the skin become clogged. It is characterized by red pimples, especially on the face. Even though some people see it as an obstacle to become a model, according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, especially for young people between 12-24 years old.

Since this condition is so common, it also has its place in the modeling industry. Brands don’t want the perfect model who owns an unreachable beauty anymore. Instead, they’re looking for real and diverse people with imperfections their customers can relate to.
