The Skin You're In

Created with Scholastic, ASA's newest education program — The Skin You're In — focuses on three skin issues of major interest and relevance to preteens and young teens (Ages 11 to 15).

Acne: Eight in 10 teenagers have acne. The Skin You're In dispels common myths about acne and outlines the most effective ways to prevent and treat it.

Sun Safety: The Skin You're In explains why ALL forms of tanning are dangerous, while emphasizing the importance of using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Atopic Dermatitis: This itchy, scaly skin condition is less well-known and more prevalent than most people realize. The Skin You're In helps teens understand what it is and how it can be treated.

The Skin You're In has already reached 15,000 middle schools, 3 million young people and 4.5 million parents nationwide. Now you can download the program right here!
