Wow I haven't posted here in ages!

Anyway, so today I was at a restaurant and an awkward gentleman walked in wearing a surgical mask. I thought perhaps it was because of the air pollution. I proceeded to wait for my food that I ordered. He seemed very self-conscious. I noticed that he had severe acne on his face. I made small talk with him, and he wouldn't look me in the eye. I wondered to myself, "Is he wearing that because of his skin?"

It didn't matter either way. I used to hide behind long hair. Now my acne is mild to only a few bumps once in a while after going through ah Accutane course 6 years ago.

My question to you is: Do you go to measures such as this to conceal your acne?

Why cant wearing paper bags over your head be normal? Maybe if some hipster started that trend...
