Anyone else hate sunlight? I used to LOVE being outdoors before I had scars. Now I avoid it like the plague, I have noticed, because it is so unforgiving. My scars always look so much worse in natural lighting than any other, it's just the angles and brightness. That is when I am the most self-conscious. And I hate that I feel that way. Any of you fellow scar sufferers have any advice on how to get over that? I really want to get over it. My scars really don't affect me in the rest of my life, well aside from dating anxiety.

I used to avoid sunlight and then I realized that I look 200% better when I'm tanned so now I wish it was always hot and sunny out.

Sunlight is the worst. I ONLY feel insecure outside. In a classroom or anywhere else I'm fine.

Oooh Ohhhh I know, you should become a vampire! That way you can just sleep through the day and come out at night. Just find a cool fancy looking coffin to sleep in, and you're good to go! smile.gif

Oooooh... or you can become a freak. They come out at night too!

Oh, and you're welcome!! smile.gif

Haha my boyfriend already calls me a vampire. My skin burns incredibly easily redface.gif , even in london, so I'm careful about sunlight anyway. But I don't feel more self conscious in the sunlight. There's no mirrors to look in outside anyway so I tend to forget about my skin.

i don't like the sun, as well. it's not that it makes my scars stand out; i just hate the feeling of the sun on my skin.

i also burn easily.

the sun isn't good for you, anyway.

Sunscreen? Dude, what the fuck are you talking about? Have you even READ the thread starter's post? She made the thread because she's self conscious about her scars being more visible in sun light, not because she burns easily.. lol

one simple solution: oil free sunblock...it will keep them from getting darker. (but i dont need it now... michigan is cold and rainy this time of yr...). but to help scars, i find products containing "retinol" work wonders.

Can't say I avoid sunlight altogether (love sunbaking at the beach), but yep, I try to avoid facing the sunlight and bright lights (street lights, etc at night) if I'm talking to someone. I always make sure the sun or light is behind me. If I can't stand with the sun or light behind me, I try to manouver around. Not much else can really be done eusa_wall.gif

I'm not sure if my scarring is actually worse or if it's just more noticeable since I don't have any breakouts to look at now. But it's definately something that bothers me bigtime!

I hate the sunlight when I am indoors. I feel like the sun is doing it on purpose. It gives me headaches because it is bright like Sunny Delight.
