In Topic: Really Scared Of Going To College With Acne + Questions About People In Colle...

I'd just like to say that I've been in college for about a week. I haven't worn foundation at all, and I feel great. This is the literally the first time in my life I've gone without makeup.

 

I still break out, but I'm able to do things without thinking about my make up. I can show my face without being so self conscious. I basically started a new life...

 

Thanks everyone smile.png

 

Also, college helps you not pick at your face. You're way too busy, and things just heal naturally!

Yeah I mean, that's what I've been doing this summer. When I went swimming in July, I hardly had any acne, but now it's back again because I started working after vacation, thus wearing foundation again and starting the cycle. For a week and a half, I've been off of work to prepare for college so I've worn less makeup. I'm getting there, but I just wish I had a couple more weeks.


In Topic: Do Your Friends Ever Make Fun Of Other People's Acne?

20 July 2013 - 10:18 PM

The friends I used to have that needed to make comments about other peoples' imperfections obviously have serious insecurities about themselves that they felt would be lifted by making fun of someone else. When you're feeling down about yourself, making someone else feel worse is always a quick remedy to these kinds of people... it takes the attention off of your flaws. I would never point out someone's acne, because I can completely relate to anyone with acne. I understand how horrible pointing out /any/ flaws makes someone feel. I wish people were more aware of others :(
