Study: People With Pimples Less Likely To Be Hired

Can really zap your career? Turns out, acne can ax jobs, dates, and even friendships, according to researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts. Analysts recruited 1,300 people and showed them pictures of a person with clear skin, mild acne, and severe acne and then asked them a series of questions that sussed out the prejudice.

Results found that only 25-percent of respondents strongly agreed they would date a person with severe pimples, while only 50-percent said they strongly agreed they’d hire someone with severe acne compared to 65-percent for those with clear skin.
