I just need to post a bit to get it off my chest - the scars on my face are driving me MAD!!!!!!!!
I just had to do my makeup outside, in sunny, natural light, where I NEVER look at my skin too closely, and I want to shrivel up and die.
Honestly, I don't even do my makeup much anymore because it's somehow less depressing, if that makes sense?
The thing is, all this has only happened within the past year, my skin was totally normal - not perfect, but normal - before last Fall. And now, yes, the acne is improving with Accutane, and I know my skin will be clear soon, but what am I left with? Huge pores, ugly pitted scars, completely uneven skin tone, redness everywhere. And who knows if the pitted scars will even go away with laser. And how long for the rest of it? My skin will never go back to the way it was.
I'm only 23 and I feel like one year has ruined my skin for the rest of my life.
I'm ashamed and angry and it's just really, really, really not fair.
