Okay. So, I have had bad acne from when I was 13 to now when I'm 18. I thought to myself (like probably many during the summer), that I will get rid of my acne before college. See, I have/had a problem with wearing makeup CONSTANTLY and mean ALL. THE. TIME.
I wore it around my parents, my friends, and even battled not allowing anyone to see my face without it during a 2 week trip abroad my senior year. It was stressful, but I managed to have fun despite these insecurities.
However, I've been waning off using serious amounts of foundation, and my acne has gotten slightly better. I think really it has gotten a LOT better but I just don't see it, because I still see breakouts and places I want gone forever.
I now apply a tinted moisturizer, concealer and then a small amount of mineral foundation, but when I leave to go to college this coming Wednesday, I don't want to have to wear the foundation AT ALL. By that I mean, I want to feel confident enough to have acne on my face, or at least start fresh at college without the baggage of foundation.
OKAY that long story said, I am scared but willing to only wear tinted moisturizer and concealer. However, I'm super self conscious about applying my makeup. I hate thinking about other girls looking at me in the mirror. Also, I'm wondering about washing your face/doing your usual face routine. Do girls just take their facial cleansers and what not to the bathroom, a face towel, and then do whatever they need to do? I have never shared a public bathroom. I AM SCARED OUT OF MY MIND.
Any advice/past experience/help with the whole self conscious stuff would really really be appreciated.
