I am the founder of FRANK'S REMEDIES a vegan skincare brand specifically for acne and its after effects.

The project is a 5 week programme of workshops at secondary schools that aims to raise body positivity (image) and mental health for 11-15 year olds. Going through the acne myself and having a product based business, I wanted to do something different, by having a project that also catered for the emotional aspects of having a skin condition, especially with everything now-a-days being so image focused (social media pressures), I found it be real need in society.
