skin looks like waxed car....

i've just noticed this lately....i'm not sure if it's the same for every human on this planet, or just acne prone people, or just me.

when i get out of the shower, or wash my face, my skin looks like a waxed car.

i don't know how familiar you guys are with that look. but the water sort of pools in droplets and stays there.

anyone else similar? is everyone like this? am i overreacting? lol.

I think I know what you mean - the water doesn't run off, it just stays on the skin until you towel it off, right?

you know before I started taking spiro, I had the same thing going on. It was also waxy to the touch. After the first dose of spiro my skin became soft again, I hated that feeling. It feels like everything can stick to your face.
