ABSTRACT
Purpose:
This study provided data on the necessity for education on skin beauty for adolescents through a correlation analysis of self-esteem according to acne recognition by examining the characteristics of the skin of adolescent girls with acne.
Method:
A survey was conducted from December 1 to December 24, 2016, and analysis was performed using frequency analysis, crossover analysis, reliability analysis, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and multiple regression analysis addressing a total of 396 responses.
Results:
The subjects of this study were elementary school students (16.4%), middle school students (44.7%), and high school students (38.9%). Acne occurred in elementary school students (56.9%), middle school students (82.5%), and high school students (90.3%). It occurred most frequently in the upper grades of elementary school students (37.0%). The most common form of acne was comedos; however, the degree and extent of acne tended to increase in the upper grades. Acne awareness also tended to increase in the upper grades. Correlation analysis confirmed that the causes of acne, acne skin care, and acne-worsening factors were positively related to self-esteem. In addition, apart from the causes of acne, acne skin care and acne-worsening factors were found to have a positive effect on self-esteem (p=0.000; R2=0.032; adj. R2=0.024; acne skin care β=0.650; acne-worsening factors β=0.620).
Conclusion:
This study confirmed that becoming aware of the causes of acne, acne skin care, and acne-worsening factors has a positive influence on adolescents. It is recommended that physiological education on skin care, such as the appropriate use of cosmetics and acne treatment, should be provided for adolescent girls who are experiencing physiological changes.
