HELP!!! here are some pics... i am so miserable
  8. every morning, I look at myself in the mirror and wish I didn't have to apply foundation before going to school.... the reality is that I will not leave my house with all these pimples and scars on my face. all I have to say is MAKE-UP IS MY SAVIOR!!! It is the only reason I leave my house because my acne has taken away all my self-esteem. Nobody really knows how much it hurts me except for my family... but even them... "it wil go away, just be patient".... I just can't handle it! Does any
