I usually end up looking in mirrors.

When I do it in passing, it's not so bad. But if I have time, I tend to look a bit longer. Every second I spend looking, I notice my imperfections more and more.

My acne has cleared up SO much, but it doesn't help when you're unattractive to begin with.

I don't like using the word ugly because it's an ugly word, and I've been called it too many times during high school, and it makes me depressed thinking about it.

I really, really hate looking in the tinted windows of my car. It always makes my acne scars look 10 times worse, and it gets me so depressed.

I used to be horrible with mirrors... I would look in them wayyy too much just constantly worrying. A couple years back, I would actually stare at my skin for the longest time just crying my eyes out... and I would do that often. Luckily, I have gotten much better and don't look in the mirror AS much.

for me mirrors are a toss-up.. in some light they can be very forgiving of ur imperfections, and in other light they can make u look like absolute shit. thats why on occasion ill visualize how i think i look, rather than face the reality of a mirror :shock:

or ill only bear to look at myself in my hall mirror, which tends to be the most flattering for some odd reason haha

I HATE looking at myself in a mirrors where the lighting in the background is fluroscent. Tt makes the coloring stand out. And if I look at myself in the mirror close-up, I tend to feel ugly.

I look in mirrors a lot when I'm alone the thing that I really can't stand is looking at mirrors with other people and seeing their perfectly clear skin compared to mine.. whenever I'm standing in front of a mirror with someone else my eyes look elsewhere other then my face, this is why I HATE getting my haircut when my skin is bad.

Alisa Lucente, I'm the same way. I'm just looking for an improvement or I keep touching my face so if any acne pimples pop up I know they're coming so I feel better about it since I didn't get my hopes up. (I know touching it only makes it worse but I can't stop. :( )

I loathe going by a mirror. The only time I can really tolerate it is when the lights are dim and I can't see my skin too much. I hate looking in the mirror in natural lighting (I get ready in a semi-dark room), in fluorescent lighting, and especially car mirrors.. UGH! As another poster mentioned, I can't stand getting my hair done because I have to stare at my face inthe mirror. I have tried explaining this to my boyfriend, but he just thinks I'm crazy, lol. (He doesn't understand how it feels, because he has always had amazingly nice skin.) I can't wait until I go on Accutane at the end of this month...
