Guys: how do you feel about a girl with acne scars? Not active acne. Makes me feel like makeup is a necessity not an option.

It is part of you so I understand you may want to cover it up on first date but I would rather you be you.

Girl same. I wear makeup, and even then it’s noticeable. The right guy won’t care cause he’s gonna have to see me barefaced eventually

Exactly. And once we do it’s def a great sign to see that you’re getting comfortable

Acne is whatever. If you’re genuine and have a great personality I’m not looking at the acne for being a deciding factor to date you or not

I had a ton and still just wouldn’t wear makeup unless it was a special occasion. Guys didn’t seem to mind. I’ve since started getting IPL treatment (it’s a laser) to help with the scarring and the first treatment made SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE for me. I highly recommend. I recently got my second treatment last week so we shall see how much improvement I have now. Bottom line, embrace who you are no matter how it looks! It doesn’t define you. And if you want to fix it there are options as well.

It is $300 per treatment and my dermatologist thought I’d need two or three. First one made such a big different I’m feeling more confident now. I hope the second one works on improving more too! No downtime at all. Your face will be red the remainder of the day but that’s nothing some tinted moisturizer couldn’t fix.

I personally don’t care. My wife has stretch marks and I love them. Don’t feel self conscious about yourself.

Guy here. People get acne and it leaves marks. Who cares? Same with tattoos and sport scars or clumsy injuries. Are you smart and funny? Most guys don't care if you're interesting and make them laugh.

Have you tried any treatment. I know it may be costly, but worth trying.

Yeah I don’t really care. Doesn’t bother me or affect the way I’d feel about you

I have chicken pox scars on my forehead. They are sometimes obvious in photos or in the light on video chat. I have thought about everyday makeup or cosmetically fixing it- BUT, I ultimately have decided it’s how I look, it is me, and I don’t want to give in to my own vanity and societal expectations. Anyone who cares that much about it probably isn’t a good fit for me.

Why don’t you go to a dermatologist and ask about laser treatments?

I got IPL twice and did notice a huge difference.
