The Worst Tip I've Ever Read About Acne

I was reading a random makeup book and it said "A splendid way to cover up a blemish is to turn it into a birthmark. Draw over the blemish with a brown eyeliner pencil and blend." I was so annoyed. I mean seriously how many birthmarks would I have? That has to be the dumbest thing I've ever read ever. :mad: What is the worst tip you've ever read about acne?

lollll! I've heard that one before. maybe it works for .00002% of the population, but uh I think the fact that if someone has a constant magical "disappering" mole is werider than just having a pimple. haha, that's probably the weirdest tip I've read. i do loathe people who say "just wash your face" as a tip to get rid of acne.

It that was the case my face would be covered in birth marks. Sounds like the crap I read in magazines with their worthless methods of eliminating pimples. Never works.

:lol::lol: Yeah I saw someone do that on TV the other day. They said something like, "Do this and you could make that pimple into a beauty mark and look like Cindy Crawford!" Ha!

I used to just get a pretty little sticker to cover up ones on my cheeks that refused to be hidden with make up, so it just looked like i was being cute or something. stops working out when your face looks like a war zone and you have a bun of big ones and little ones in the area.

I've done that before but the sticker always falls off because of my makeup. Erghh.
