I've noticed that, too. Whenever I look in my bathroom mirror my skin looks just fine. When I look in a car mirror it does look worse. It also seems to look worse in florescent lighting or in sunlight on a cloudy day.

Yeah...when I looked in the car mirror yesterday my face looked about ten times worse. But when I got home and looked in the bathroom mirror everything looked fine. I tend to avoid looking in mirrors when I'm out.

It is probably the lighting more than the mirror. Hence why people recommend you apply makeup in natural light and not in your bathroom.

There is a particular bathroom mirror at work I LOVE because I look awesome in it (haha). But I sit next to a window at work and realize the natural light isn't good for my features sad.gif

Tell me about it... My skin looks fine in almost all mirrors. Even under florescent light while not perfect its still pretty decent. For some reason when i catch my reflection on car mirrors it looks bad :/

I hate looking in my bathroom mirror when the sun is shining through it. my face looks red and bumpy. But in other mirrors with normal lighting my face is clear..lol

Solution: I keep a blind over the window on sunny days lol

I noticed today that my skin looked worse in the car mirror, and my theory is that car mirrors have a coating that help reduce the glare from the sun or car lights, so this must make this look worse.

maybe im wrong but thats what i think

Try wearing glasses and then walking slowing backwards from the mirror, it's even worst!

To be honest, those car mirrors most likely show the true reflection. It happens to me all the time. I mean, these bathroom mirrors disguise it in a way, due to the lighting and the fact that bathrooms are normally a bit dull with not many windows. So, if your skin looks good in the car mirror, happy days!

hmm mayb ur right, for me, my bathroom mirror tells the truth, its right in front of a window, so always has light shining in,

i think mirrors in dark rooms make skin look worse as my red marks always seem worse in my room with the blinds closed

You know whats killing me the most? Its not the actual car mirrors the problem, but how your reflection shows as you drive with the shadow and lightning changing. My english is bad but what im trying to say is that i will check my face on the car mirror as i drive in the highway for example and no imperfection show up; as i take a turn after the traffic lights lets say 1-2 scars out of nowhere will show up. Highly frustrating and most likely one day ill get into a car accident as i have the habit to check my face on the car mirrors very frequently.

I don't judge my face by car mirrors, because they're magnified. I hate being in a room with fluorescent lights, though. It shows everything.
