I've been with my boyfriend for seven (SEVEN!?!) years! I'm a year out of college (23!) and he's two years out (24!). I'm going into the military after deciding that my biology high school teaching job wasn't for me.
Well. Here's the deal. In order to get all the great benefits from the military, you have to be married! lol. And we have to do it SOON so that it can be done before I ship out in February! Of course, I wanted to marry him anyway, so we're not feeling "forced" at all. He's amazing, and my best friend. But...I have ACNE. Why should this matter, you ask? Well, I'm sure you know...
I want my engagement to be beautiful. I don't want any pictures of it to document any embarrassing acne. I don't want my makeup to show in the pictures (weird, suuuuper even skin tone; too light face-- you know the deal). I don't want him to look at my face and be a little less impressed because of my bumps. But I think he might propose this weekend and I'm so nervous! I'm afraid that being nervous will cause my acne! Or that being stressed with cause it!
The good thing is-- I'm actually clearing up because of a combination of things (see my signature for my current regimen). But I'm still afraid that I'll look back on this and think "my acne ruined this moment..."
Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on how to "forget" about my acne for a little while--- just so I can truly enjoy my engagement and then one day, my wedding. Or does anyone have any stories? I just feel so...sad...that this is affecting something that I've always wanted with my best friend. Or, does it matter? Should I even care? Do people even notice?
