Noone will remember. Whenever I have an issue with my face at school I just deal with it the best I can and keep the mindset that yeah it's bad but it'll go away and people wont remember tomorrow.

Ever seen other people with acne? Do you remember the exact spots they had? Nope

My acne meds are great for making my horrible face look decent. I use retin-a which lightens my face dramatically. The clindamycine I use works great overnight. So I dont know if you're on either but that's what works for me. I once woke up with tons of white spots on my face and, i know this sounds gross, after I got rid of them and put the retin-a on, it looked like I never had them. (this was in the morning before school too)

Retin-a is a miracle worker, get it. (It's perscription)
