Acne Scars Are Way More Noticeable In The Sunlight



I was wondering if anyone noticed if there acne scars look way worse in sunlight , I never really noticed mine was so bad until a few days ago when i was looking in a mirror in the sunlight why is this ?? when I'm looking in the mirror in my house with regular lighting my scars don't look so bad but outside in the light they look horrible. I got some ice pick scars on my cheeks and they are pretty bumpy does anyone know some good ways to smooth them out cause i think it would look a little better if it was smoother and also is there any good make up to cover up these type of scars.

i noticed mine can be more or less noticeable depending on the lighting. Yellow lighting makes my scars less noticeable, probably because the yellowish light neutralizes the color of the scar. and bright lighting, like more whitish kind can make them more noticeable, i think because it allows you to see what it really looks like. They say girls should apply their makeup in natural lighting (by a window or something) to cover up in the most natural looking way.

so the answer would be sunlight makes scars more noticiable because thats really what they look like. yellow artificial lighting neutralizes the color.
