NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- How far would Americans be willing to go to have clear skin? The AcneFree brand conducted a survey, using SurveyMonkey, that asked more than 1,000 men and women which coveted items they were willing to sacrifice to be acne free for life.
- 80 percent said they would give up both Netflix and Instagram for six months
- 82 percent of women said they would go makeup free for a year (4 out of every 5 women in American wear makeup daily)
- More than 82 percent of respondents also revealed that they would give up all their holiday presents this season
The survey results are particularly remarkable given the habits of most Americans today. Data from 2016 showed that Netflix subscribers streamed 42.5 billion hours of programming in just one year. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans spent on average 100 minutes per day streaming Netflix, nearly three to five times more than they report spending with friends, exercising and reading. People also spent an average of 24 minutes a day on Instagram, equals eight and a half months of undivided attention over their lifetime.
The survey also asked people to share their favorite at-home remedies to solve their acne problems. While household items such as toothpaste, honey and lemon dominate the list many of the answers were more surprising and unique like coffee grounds, garlic & onions, cat litter, chocolate, mascara and even Elmer's Glue. Some participants reported a more holistic approach to treating their acne highlighting the virtues of crying, praying and meditation. These survey results underscore how desperate Americans are to find the right answer to their acne problems. Thankfully, AcneFree provides easy-to-use solutions that are proven to be effective.
