I've noticed that, too about the lighting. It's so awful!!!!! When I go shopping for clothes I'm too scared to look in most of the mirrors because they have big flourescent lights (bright ones!) right over them and it shows every red mark. I think my face is almost clear until I look in one of those mirrors and then I feel like a freak! Now I try not to look in them, it's so depressing. I put on an outfit and if my mom or someone is with me I ask them for advice. I've noticed something, too....if I'm in a place with a lot of bright flourescent lights for awhile...like at school, it seems like even at home my red marks look worse. Could the lights possibly be aggravating them? One doctor told me it's very possible if you are on a photosensitizing medication...but it seems to anyway. Anyway, why can't stores, etc put lighting that isn't so harsh? They'd probably sell more clothes and things, too!
