my boyf saw pics of my acne... im mortified!

Recommended Posts

well i brought a new phone a couple of days ago,,, im hopefully going to start accutane in a month so wanted to keep progress pics of my skin... so i took some pics of my skin as a "before accutane" shot... my boyfriend was messing about with my phone today and saw the pictures...

lets just say i was SO EMBARRASSED it was very mortifying.

my skin doesnt look that bad.. just the pictures and the night flash emphasised the redness and scars ALOT. he said to me is your skin really that bad, i said kind off, he said he can't tell 'cause of the make-up.. i said its not that bad just looks it...

it doesnt bother him, he knows about my skin issues and low self esteem

weve been together for 5 years

ive only had acne for 2/3 before that it was flawless

but still, i feel really shit

Don't worry about it. If you've been with this guy for 5 years I'm sure he doesn't care about your appearance as much as you think he does. He sounds like a good guy and I'm sure you're very beautiful, acne or no acne :D

what an asshole..

do you think?

i thought maybe i was overreacting

he is the kind of person who is very blunt and says what he thinks

i thought he'd understand as he had severe acne when i met him and we started dating

:(

IMO he prob felt the awkwardness you were giving off and maybe said slightly the wrong thing.

he isnt an asshole in my opinion tho.

if he supports you and doesnt make it a big deal then he sounds great to be honest.

thank you for all your comments...

your right he does support me i did speak to him about going on accutane he wasnt happy because of the side effects but when i told him how ugly i felt because of my skin and how i wanted to be happy with myself on our wedding day he said he's support me through it. yes i am lucky to have him!!!

thank you all so much....

i'll be happy the day i have clear skin, then i shan't need to wear make-up, he hates me wearing make-up anyway!

i'm not so sure about this. if he didn't notice it then her acne isn't that bad (i guess its just red marks and minimal acne), but what would happen if she broke out bad?

i bet he would dump her.

would he had approached her if she looked like her pics and asked her out on a date? i doubt it.

(not trying to be mean, and i could be totally wrong)

edit: nevermind you're getting married. good luck and congrats!
