Amritsar, October 11

‘My First Pimple’, a campaign initiated by a beauty and wellness firm, aims to connect with teenagers aged between 13 and 17 years to tackle emotional and physical challenges faced by them during their growing-up years, including the onset of pimples. Research highlights that teenagers tend to get conscious about their appearance and avoid socialising because of pimples.

Under the campaign, Drishti Nanda, young chef of Masterchef fame, interacted with girls at Ajanta Public School. The event witnessed participation of over 200 teenage girls. Drishti connected with the young girls and narrated her story on how she never let anything bog her down to reach the stage where she is a celebrity chef today.

“Growing up girls should be informed about right eating and the need to work on their fitness. This will help them keep focus on their education as well help in taking care of the skin simultaneously,” said Drishti.

Keerthika Damodharan, brand manager, The Himalaya Drug Company, said, “My First Pimple campaign is a platform to create awareness about the issues surrounding pimples, including lack of confidence among young girls.”
