A group of friends (including the guy I like) want me to go swimming with them. I have really light skin and a few active pimples right now because I did manage to clear my pretty severe acne. Now I'm left with these great red marks left all over my face from the acne I had. I pretty much always have makeup on I won't leave my house without it. I cover it up really good to the point where it looks like my skin is clear. I am So scared to go swimming. Is there any way I can keep my foundation on?? I just can't go without it I would be way too embarrassed and would probably keep trying to cover my face up which isn't fun. I really want to go though! What should I do??

I think you might have better luck here http://www.acne.org/...etics-grooming/

 

I've often seen girls keep some makeup on when they go to the pool. I'm not sure if it's waterproof or something. Either way you can still go swimming without putting your head under the water. That's what i did when i used tinted moisturizer to lessen some marks.
