Post MIRRORS

Do any of you find that u look better in the sunlight rather than indoor bulb light.

I always put my mirror up to my bedroom window so that i can see what i look like but cause there is never enough light to get into the bedroom my face looks like crap and al my red marks show up.

but when i go outside with my mirror and look my face doesnt look that bad.

at work there is this mirror i was always afriad off cause it is one of those that show up everything on your face no matter if u r indoors or outside.
so anyways today i though oh well i have to know what my face looks like seen as though i have a meeting in like 2 mins so i got it and looked into it and was scared to open my eyes but did and it doesnt look bad at all
i took it outside and had a look and it looks almost clear frm red marks.

also i have this mirror which always lies to me. i call it the friendly mirror cause if u r avin a bad day i always look into it and it always shows my face to be clear.
i have decided to bin this mirror cause i would rather see what i really look like than what i dont. afterall people see u. i may be thinking i am avin a good day when really i am not.

so yeah it is really strange............. maybe roaccutane is starting to kick in...

I hate mirrors! First thing in the morning, I look fine but then all the redness and blotchiness comes through. Don't even get me started on the mirrors in the bathroom of the office I work in....

The worst mirrors are the ones in changing rooms or in clothing stores who have BRIGHT, SUPER BRIGHT white lighting. I hate walking into stores like that. The stronger the lighting, the more that is visible.

I thought i was the only one who thought any of this. Rear view mirrors, I think they lead you on to make yourself look bad. And mirrors at malls really get me. I don't think I would like them if I had clear skin.

Question

I hate rearview mirrors very much also.
But for me, the worst is when I have to go to the dentist & lay down on the chair & I'm staring up at this huge flourescent light panel & while also blinding me, every little blemish on my poor messed-up face is revealed in all it's glory.
very embarassing
unfortunately, my next appointment is the 23rd & I seriously wish I didn't have to go; not really cuz of my acne but mainly cuz I hate going to the dentist
Whenever I get a permit I'm gonna avoid looking at the rear view mirror as much as I can w/out having a wreck.
That kind of mirror is one of the worst to look at your face close-up.

I HATE rear view mirrors. I try to avoid them when going out. It makes my face look 10 times worse, even 100 times worse when the light shines through. They should be banned lol

koden, you crack me up! you HAVE to look in the rearview to drive! Not at yourself...at what's *behind* you. lol. Somehow i think having acne is not as bad as smearing your guts across the highway.

i did do a longish post on mirrors once...weeks and weeks back. i check out EVERY mirrored surface. i look especially heinous in the silver surface of a CD. But the ole rearview ranks up there too. And the handheld mirrors for sale in Rite-Aid? Eeeeeek! The worst!

Question

ahh man that sucks.
I've only test-drove a car once & my mom got so mad at me cuz I didn't want to look in the rearview mirror.
whenever I get a car I'm wearing sunglasses so I won't be able to see myself very well
hehe : )
