​Skina is a social media platform that aims to raise acceptance of "imperfect" skin. Due to negative social perceptions, acne patients can experience emotional distress and frustration, even leading to psychological trauma. Skina was created to lessen that burden and help those suffering along a path of self-acceptance, by providing needed emotional support and a safe place to share their stories. What makes Skina unique and award-worthy is that it focuses on users' psychological well-being rather than how to alter their appearance.
