Brief Summary: 'Expand Your Horizons', a self-help writing intervention that seeks to train individuals to focus on what their body can do (functionality) rather than what it looks like (appearance), has produced promising results in improving body image. However, it has not been adapted and trialled in populations with conditions affecting skin appearance. This research therefore seeks to evaluate the potential for 'Expand Your Horizons' to (1) improve body image, as measured by body and functionality appreciation; and (2) improve skin-specific outcome, as measure by skin-shame, dermatology and quality of life, in a population with dermatological conditions, using a Randomised Control Trail.
