first of all im not a girl. I'm a man, 23 years old, and i have a lot of deep scars as well as light ones. I'm prone to acne and i still regularly grow acne. Last year I've been through dermaroller in the best hospital here in my city and to be honest I was quite satisfied with the result (80% fixed my face, although not all scars gone, but all the light ones seemed almost gone completely and the deep ones became light scars)
However, new acne keep coming in as always and now I'm as bad as compared to before I went through dermaroller process.
Im tired of getting heavy treatment like that.. I now regularly getting microdermabration once a month and I'm using creams from doctor, it helps tbh, but only helps a bit. When the scars fade only a little bit, new acnes keep coming in regularly (usually once every 1-2 weeks, but sometimes I get small acnes. They aren't big acnes that leave deep scars...as for the ones that leave deep scars, i get them once every 3-5 weeks)
So basically I'm tired of this situation and not sure what to do anymore. I was looking online for make up solution and I think concealer could be my best bet. Now im not a gay or a metrosexual or whatever negative phrase associated with a man who wear make up, i never wear make up even once....but Im willing to try just to cover all of my deep scars (i have about 6-7 as of now) as well as my current active acne (i have 1 atm, but as i said i keep getting them)
So basically i dont want to look flawless, i just want to wear something that would cover my acne scars and it must look natural (so people wont notice i wear make up hehe), but that's all, nothing else. even if the scars still visible for about 10%, i dont mind, as long as it really helps me covering them and as long as I would look as if i dont wear any make up..
I honestly dont know what to wear and how, online information is somewhat confusing as I dont know where to start...I read somewhere that I should wear foundation first, concealer, then powder, but do I really need powder? someone even mentioned concealer would be enough..
and talking about concealer what kind? I was thinking to buy MAC concealer studio finish SPF 35 since it's for acne prone skin, i guess?
if let's say this isnt for me, then what is? And what else to buy, like foundation and powder? And how to wear it? Also, as far as I know concealer should come with 24 colors palette or something right, but why not this one? How if my skin color is different from the concealer color? Help me please...
