12 Overly Specific Celebrations We Never Knew Existed
For June, it’s..
(SPOT.ph) Pimple Awareness Month. You read that right; the entire month of June is dedicated to pimples. It's a legit thing–in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) even lists it as one of monthly health observances. This month is about spreading the word on the seriousness of acne, what causes it, and how to fight it.
Acne is actually a skin disorder—and though dirt, oil, and bacteria buildup are the main causes for it, a number of factors affect how often it acts up and how severe your breakouts get. That’s why learning to manage your triggers is just as important as deeply cleansing your skin every night. Watch this moving PSA to see what we mean.
There really is no shortage of obscure holidays to celebrate, so we’ve picked out a few of the more interesting ones for each month of the year. Some of these may be oddly overly specific, while others are just downright funny, but you might enjoy celebrating them nonetheless.
