‘Acne Lights’ Used To Target Teenagers

My lovely friend Beccy sent me this article from Dazed because she knows me incredibly well and knew that I would be enraged by it. In case you missed the story when it was in the news, some businesses and councils in the UK are using pink lights that accentuate acne to discourage teenagers from ‘loitering’ in public spaces.

(The news story originally came from The Telegraph but that’s behind a paywall so…)

Is it unethical to use 'acne lights' to discourage teenagers from loitering? I'm sharing my thoughts on the blog. Councils and businesses in the UK are using these 'acne lights' to target young people with skin conditions. Is it a human rights issue? #talontedlex #skinpositivity
