In the least, it might further humanize one of your favorite celebrities who previously seemed untouchable. After all, who wants to idolize people who are completely unrelatable boooring. While the Riverdale star absolutely glows in her role as Betty, she recently shared with HelloGiggles that she struggles with blemishes and uses a daily acne cleanser as part of her routine we are still unsure of the brand.
No matter what any1 says. Miley Cyrus has a pretty amazing Instagram track record full of photos of her wearing zit creams , pore-cleansing masks, and even finding creative ways to cover up zits glitter and flowers are a go-to. Another one of our pop faves who knows the power of a good zit cream is none other than Lorde herself.
You might feel odd since you're a guy but really there is no shame in this and the workers there will treat you with respect, they're just trying to sell a product. You just have to find a makeup product that looks natural on the skin. My ex had pretty bad skin and struggled with acne and scarring.
It bothered him way more than it ever bothered me. Scars wouldn't bother me at all. I'd only be bothered by like, oozing zits. Open wound type stuff. My fiance has had long history with "bad" skin acne, psoriasis, eczema. The first time I saw him with his shirt off I made a comment that I didn't know people could get gray freckles, I happened to think it was cute.
Apparently they were scars from flares and he felt they were horribly disfiguring.
Ah, the wonderful perks of being in a new relationship: you've got those butterfly- in-the-stomach tingles, each and every new factoid about the. 19 things you should know before dating a girl with acne your hands and freaking out about all the bacteria you're rubbing into our skin.
I still think having grey freckles is cute. The best I can figure it is just like he tells me that he doesn't even notice I have stretch marks on my boobs. Which I hyper fixate on as extremely disfiguring. Not a dealbreaker for me.
My current boyfriend has very bad acne, redness, PIH, cystic acne, and so on. I thought he was cute and super charming though so I asked him out.
You're an awesome person regardless of what your skin looks like and if someone can't see that she's not worth your time. Confidence is a matter of degrees. Already have an account? I think confidence is a misused, perhaps overused, word. I am not conventionally attractive. I find that bimbo girls tend to just stare at your face and won't even listen to you, they are busy trying to understand how your skin got the way it is. Chances are they probably won't care too much about you having acne.
Of course, it might have to do with the fact that my skin isn't perfect either. Facially, my skin is fine, no acne, no redness, no scars. But I have eczema on the rest of my body and it became worse when I got a skin infection. Still trying to fade those scars from two years ago so I understand the insecurity.
Your definition of bad may be way different than someone else's definition of bad. In all honesty, not too much of a deal breaker. As long as it's obvious you're taking care of it and not letting it spiral out of control. Oh and, if you feel self conscious about it, it will be pretty apparent. Don't think about it. You're an awesome person regardless of what your skin looks like and if someone can't see that she's not worth your time. My ex had quite severe acne but I never really noticed it. I really loved him so stupid on the surface things didn't matter.
As for now, if I saw someone with spots now or was asked on a date, it still wouldn't bother me as long as they are looking after themselves of course!
But if it bothers you that much, I know plenty of girls who have scars from acne but cover it extremely well with make-up. Maybe not well enough to model, but enough for people not to notice. Skin situation is a tricky thing because sometimes it's a health condition like yours but sometimes it indicates poor hygiene which I can't stand.
The appearance of scars though do not bother me at all, I have scars all over my body so whatever.
Unfortunately though some skin conditions make it unpleasant to touch someone's skin and then I do have some trouble because I am a tactile person but I don't want to feel like it would be gross to touch someone. Having bad skin would not be a deal breaker, although I would be put off if some one who had a skin condition like yours was not taking care of it properly or being hygienic. I've seen guys who have bad skin but just don't seem to make an effort with the rest of themselves.
And there others like my boyfriend who had bad acne in his early 20s but took care of his skin condition and his overall look, and the way he carried himself. Keep your head up, things will get better if you make even a little effort.
It doesn't bother me at all. Obviously, if I designed a man from the toes up, I would not design him with acne, but, it is something I can easily overlook. And I can overlook it despite having never had even mild acne myself. You're making a huge mistake to assume that you are or will be judged for your bad skin, particularly if a girl is checking you out. It's one of those problems that looms larger in your own mind than in the minds' of others.
It's not about the skin, it's about who is underneath it. People are gonna like you for your personality, not your skin. Sure a vapid person might call it a deal breaker but they're not worth your time anyway. The fact is, if you're super insecure about it then do something to change it and try not to let it get in your way. Shit, the world isn't perfect. If you let your acne control your life, you're gonna draw attention to it and other people will notice it too.
The onus is on you to teach them to treat you with respect, and not to play into their prejudice by confirming what they originally thought about you. You do realize I was being sarcastic with my second point right? Plenty of self-proclaimed "nice guys" who never go out to meet women are typically the same type of people to complain about "jerks" online, as you've done above "Jerks and bad boys are more succesful than nice men". Also, I never said these types of people don't exist. You're putting words into my mouth.
They just don't happen to be a part of my social circle. If they happen to be a part of yours, well, can't say I'm terribly surprised.
Women do prefer nice guys! Now maybe when they are very young its different but when they hit later 20's and 30's all that crap goes out the window! All my single women friends just want a nice guy that will treat them right and be a good husband, father etc. Looks fade so you better have something else to back it up down the road anyway.
They didn't stop there! They also hate me for my clothes, my behaviour, my intelligence, the fact that I am introverted and a bit quiet person, etc. I can assure you, the problems are definitely not imaginary. Also, I am not a self-proclaimed nice guy. I am a nice guy proclaimed by psychiatry. My social skills have been tested and they are absolutely fine.
People, who see other people as lesser than themselves, are aggressive, uncivilized barbarians. I don't believe that. I fall in that age range and I am still a virgin. By far most women in that age range already are committed in a relationship. I have even tried datingsites, but I can't lie about my problems and my past on there.
I never got any good results with that.
You cant go wrong being good looking. I have been feeling so torn and awful latley, I've just started a new relationship with someone I've known for a while right when my acne has started to flare up again I don't want to do this at all and these words have given me the confidence to carry on with this relationship. Especially "I wouldn't have met all the wonderful friends I know now had I spent my days sulking shyly alone rather than being friendly. I agree with the OP's blunt advice and I wish I could say that it always works but it doesn't.
Because many people are superficial and looks-oriented, and even if you love yourself and have confidence, they will still judge you and reject you. But still, those people are doing you a favor in the long run because who wants to be with a person who mostly judges people on how they look? Based purely on life experience my own personal life experience this rings especially true. It's so easy to tell someone "be confident" like it's a switch you're capable of toggling in your head whenever you desire. You'll notice in this modern day society that an arrogant male who is rude as hell has no problem at all getting a girlfriend.
I will never be that person. I don't WANT to be that person. I'm not willing to change myself and betray my personality just because that's what some girls find attractive. Do I want a relationship? Am I going to put on an act and be an asshole to obtain that relationship? I'll be honest when I say that I hate modern dating.
Everything about it seems flawed to me. We live in an image obsessed world where some of the most negative personality traits are considered "hot" or "sexy. I have no desire to be a douche bag "alpha male" no matter how sexy or attractive that persona is.
But in all seriousness, I hate talking to women the most. I find that bimbo girls tend to just stare at your face and won't even listen to you, they are busy trying to understand how your skin got the way it is. Some men don't care, while some douchebags do. It's hard finding decent people sometimes, just because people haven't experienced it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So of course I always have an open mind and hope that I will find someone who does respect and is empathetic about certain situations. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
