Your skin always looks different in all different types of light and shade. The angle the light is coming from also makes a difference. Usually in bright light, your skin reflects some of the light back, making your acne look less noiceable - like a bright flash on a camera does.

All mirrors are deceiving because of light and angles.

I honestly have no idea what my face or my skin looks like anymore, I get so many different results from mirrors and levels/types of light.

The flash on my camera ALWAYS makes me look terrible, though. I hate that thing.

I think the one that I guess is the closest to one's 'true' skin is in direct sunlight or looking in a mirror on a sunny day, or so I've been told - usually when your skin is at it's worst.

My red marks looked terrible a few months ago in the car mirror but now they look alot better in the direct sunlight.

What does everyone else think is their 'true light'?

When I looked into the big mirror in the bathroom today I looked okay at a fair distance. Then I looked at another mirror close up and was like.. Omg, my face is horriable =[. *sniff
