Recommended Posts

Its happened to a lot of us im sure......happens to me all the time....when people stare at your skin. I hate it when people blatenlt are looking at my skin. Was on the train earlier, and there was this snooty looking woman who was just staring at my skin for like 10mins and she looked disgusted. I was so mad...i just had to look away from her otherwise i would have given her some evil looks! lol! :confused:

Yes, I can totally relate. I live in NYC. When I commute on the train there are people in my face for and hour in the morning and hour in the evening. grrrr :(. I bring a paper, book or magazine with me. I try to find a corner seat. I put my ipod on and pull what I am reading high almost covering my whole face to read. I am paranoid and am always giving this look :shifty: . I know people think I am wierd on top of having bad skin...lol, but I cant help it. I wanna see if I can tell if people are noticing my face. My face is better than it has been in a long while. thnx to my regimen that i do faithfully ( in my signature). I also would like to give a SHOUT OUT to Dan for his effective affordable bp (so far SO GOOD but only been a week with the new bp). I am a female but I can put on my "New York dont F*** with me" look when i feel someone is staring to long. Over all my face is better but my insecurities of being judge badly is still healing (even at 28). Oh I would like to add i picked this up yesterday Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel. I now put this on after bp before aha lotion. It feels nice but not sure yet if it is working. It is supposed to help with healing, red marks and scares.

Yea, I know how you feel...

But maybe sometimes it's just paranoia...

Like for example, sometimes when I walk outside, for some reason, some people (especially men) just stare at me. My boyfriend noticed that, and he said that they stare at me because I'm "hot" which made me feel soooo good because inside of me I thought they were starring at my skin....but who knows. Oh well... you shouldn't think about this too much. Let them think whatever they want to! 'cause you are beautiful.

i always feel from the corner of my eye that the person is looking at my skin,but when i turn and look at them i see they are not looking at me but something beside me,this always happens- i think i have some phobia and some of us might have that feeling to being over conscious about our facial problems.Im not saying that people dont look at you im sure they do & unfor. not much we can really do even if we comment they can hurt us more commenting back on our skin flaw.But this happens to me almost all the time wher ei fele someone is looking at me when they arent..

:think: somehow the reasoning and the correlation isnt quite connecting.

my previous comment had nothing to do with racism or guns. This being an acne forum, it would seem that those two issues would be more than a little out of place....not to mention awkward.

OMG i so do that on the bus... if i feel my left side is bad today i sit on the left side of the bus so the light from the window makes it look a little bit better lol! and visa versa.

As far as funny looks go i usually walk around with my sleves rolled up! now your all thinking "well why do you do that?" well ill tell you lol! i look kinda like a shy, young, innocent lad however lets just say i kinda have a few tattoos, i think people are like "wow, did you see that guys tattoo" and they kinda dont notice my face as much because i REALLY REALLY dont look like the kind of person who should have a full tribal sleve on his arm! lol
