I dont really know much but i do know this:

After your have showered your pours (or however u spell it) are open so any little zit or whatever on your face will be red and you will be able to see it quite well.

If you wait 20 minutes after you get out of the shower the redness will go down and you will only be able to see the bigger zits.

Also i find that if your in a bathroom with no window and just fake light it also makes it look worse than it actually is so what i do is go into the other bathroom with a window and open the blinds and look at my face there and it looks a whole lot better than it does under fake light.

I don't have Acne but i do get breakouts every month or so.

I don't think she should dump you just because a few zits. I mean come on. That would be beyond horrible. But if shes moving it might be hard to maintain a relationship anyway. Long-distance relationships are nearly impossible, believe me.

acctually.. it's kind of funny... one of my biggest crushes ever was on a guy who had a moderate case of acne.. AND glasses...

really though she's right.. right after a shower the warm water has drawn all the blood in to fight off the bacteria so it's going to show up REALLY bad... I have alot of people compliment me on my skin.. very smooth and pale.. alot like a bisque doll.. but if anyone saw me right after a shower they'd think my face was a pizza..

if you have to go anywhere immediately after your shower and you want it to go away, either rinse your face with really really cold water or rub an icecube over it.. it pushes the blood off the surface and the redness goes away

Thanks,

I took the advice, I checked outside about an hour later, and I could only see a few big ones on my cheek.

I suppose its not as bad is it looks right after the shower.

It doesn't worry me if a guy has acne, they can't help it.

My face usually looks better after taking a shower... ?? But my skin isn't that bad to begin with, so I don't know.

long distance relationship wont last but if your still worried about the other gurls liking you dont be worried because if they like you they should like you for you not just your looks.. those are sleezy people but if you really want some help go to your dermatologist.. and ask if you can get a prescription of Benzamycin. it cleared my skin in a week and i had really bad acne.. but its so clear and i have very little pimples or acne.
