yes,

car mirrors are dodgy too, sometimes catch a glimpse and nearly swallow my own vomit.

em also mirror in bathroom is OK with the lighting in there, but i dread going in elevators with mirrored walls or looking at myself in mirrors in shops when im buying clothes etc.

just depends on lighting i guess.

dont worry im sure your gorgeous and we just examine our mugs too much.

so dont overanalyse ! ;)

Yes I see the same thing! Remember getting a big relief when I discovered that everyone looks ugly in those mirrors (thought it was just me) when I look at someone standing next to me in the elevator they always look much more ugly in the mirror than when I look directly at them in the same light, so the mirror is definatly not showing what others see due to reflected lightning or something. Even people with flawless skin look like they have ugly old saggy skin in alot of elevator mirrors and such, wonderful, hehe.

I think its lighting...my bathroom has 3 bright lights above the mirror and I can see everything...just grounds for picking LOL

I love to go to my aunts because her mirrors just love me he he he.

And the car mirror forget about it, oh I don't like natural sunlight.

I think the angle of the light is important too. If it comes in at an at the side of your face when you are looking at it will make any bumps stick out more. Fluorescent and direct sunlight are the worst.

I tried an experiment two months ago, where I didn't look in mirrors for two weeks. By not looking at my skin, I wasn't worrying about it, stress levels went down, social life went up, and as a result, my skin's overall texture looked much nicer when I finally did look in the mirror. If I absolutely DID have to look in the mirror, I took a large step away from it, instead of leaning forward to think about all the things I hate about my skin. Worked wonders :).

Lighting works against you as well.

I like my big mirror better actually...

Just about everyone on this site knows in some mirrors you look good and others you don't.

Got o amirror with natural lighting, where there is plenty of sunshine....and if your stills tressing out,t hen just stay away from mirrors all together! LOL

why is it that fluroescant light makes you appear the worst? That blows hard cause most public places like offices, classrooms and hospitals, etc use fluroescant lighting....damn
