Question Is it just me??

I have mild acne and everytime I wake up in the morning and look in the mirror... Its like I only have a few scars that I need to get rid off. However, as I go to school and the day progresses the marks on my skin get more visible?? Any Solution?? Please Help!!!!!!

Unfortunately different mirrors have differing levels of kindness

Ohhhh yes they do...different lighting plays a huge part in how your skin looks. The lighting in my bathroom is definitely more forgiving than the florescent lighting in public bathrooms, for example.

if you use concealer to cover up the scars, a good thing to do is do your makeup right next to a window and get the natural lighting and so you can see what it will look like while you're outside.

Re: Is it just me??

the mirror in my bedroom gives a true reflection, so i use this mirror to use my cover up stick on, it seems to work so i look decent and the scars are minimal.

Ya, i notice the same thing. For me, it seems as though my face is void of all the red marks that i have. By the time i get home those red mrks/scars seem to have a lot more color than they did in the morning. It probably has something to do with circulation...

I find that as the day progresses, I get more oil on my face and that makes my acne/ scars look worse. When I wash my face it looks much better. Just be careful to not overwash.

Hey, I noptice the same thing. It is so werid- I start the day feeling good and thinking I look good and by mid day (and especially at night) I look 10 times worse! I wonder if circulation does have anything to do with it.

Actually my scars fade if my skin gets oily.

Re: Is it just me??

My solution is to not even look in mirrors anymore. I look in the morning to comb my hair and that's it. The rest of the day I just avoid mirrors.

Re: Is it just me??

Hey, I'm so sad that when I'm done at the gym I have a warm shower and get my hair wet so it covers my forehead as best as possible and the heat makes my complexion even out. I pull on my clothes as quick as I can so that I can get out to the reception and get my membership card back before these effects wear off. Why? Because all the receptionists are gorgeous-looking girls of my age and I hate to feel so out of their league. I wish I could control my skin like I can my body. I'd trade my torso for Fat Man Scoop's if I could just have the confidence to walk out of the gym
