Can a girl be pretty with acne scars?

I don't mean hyperpigmentation , I mean actual pits. I am not this girl , but she is a YouTuber who has skin very similar to mine and I wanted to give some visual reference.

  • Yeah , definitely, acne isn't what someone wants to have , but some people just have it. Its the way God made us. We don't ask for it. I think a girl can be pretty with acne scars , because its not her fault that she has them anyway. She doesn't deserve to be less pretty because of it. It's part of life , so I think acne scars don't matter when it comes to prettiness 😊.

  • That looks like hyperpigmentation to me? Not pits. Maybe my phone is acting up.
    But yes, of course. I have hyperpigmentation, and have had if since my teenage years which included gruesome acne (the horror). I STILL dont have great skin, but I've accepted it for what it is. If my face even rubs on something for 5 seconds, I will have a red itchy bump there. For no reason. That's how sensitive I am.
    I cannot even tell you how insecure I was of it before. I didn't attend school for a long time because of my stupid face and hyperpigmentation that was just.. BAD. I know you're talking about pits, but insecurity is common all around. I am still insecure, but not as much. I have good days where it's just pink, and bad days where there's hyperpigmentation AND bad breakouts. It's tough, let me tell you.
    And I don't want anyone telling me to try this or that because I've done it ALLLLLL. I find that accepting yourself, fighting your demons and fighting even harder to find happiness..: that is what will get you past all this.
    I was suicidal for a long time because of it. It takes time to accept yourself but you will get there. Promise.
    I still don't have it perfect. I see so many girls with such great skin and I still envy them. I totally know where you are coming from.

    • She has actual pits. It's so hard to get them to show with a not so great camera ( which is why I gave up on uploading my own picture ). If you look her up on YouTube ( her name is Naomi Kenya ) you'll see what I mean =) . Thank you for the advice and for sharing your experience with me !

    • @dreamergirl94 but your so pretty... really I am glad your better!

  • I have a skin disease called keratosis pilaris. It pretty much went away with time but my skin has lots of little red spots on my flanks. Plus I have stains in my elbow joints that appeared after a prolonged period of stress which become bright red when it's warm outside. I also have a pasty white skin that can't go under the suns for very long without burning. So let's say I have my fair share of problems. I would be in a good position to understand your plight and would never judge you on that. Plus, honestly, at least for her, I don't think it's necessarily ugly and would easily overlook it.

    • omg i also have KP! what age did yours go away?

    • @Alayio
      I am not sure as it didn't stop in a day. I think at some point in my early 20's? I still have it though but it calmed down. I still have little red spots at the base of the hair but they rarely turn into pimples anymore, pretty much only on my upper legs and mainly in the summer. It's hard on your self-esteem right? It totally killed mine...

  • A hot iron fell on the face of one gal I know a while back. And I haven't stopped finding her beautiful just because she still has scars from being burned. I only wish she were more willing to trust me, to let me into her life. But apparently she has other scars that are more than skin deep.

  • I'm crushing on a girl that has that exact thing on her face. It's on both her cheeks. Doesn't bother me. To guys that like you it'll just seem even more endearing.

  • Yes, a woman can be pretty despite that, but her attractiveness factor will come down a little, but nothing to worry about it too much.

    The short answer is no. As soon as you have acne scars, you can never be pretty. I would say that you are ugly if you have them.

  • Yeah, it's ok as long as the rest makes up for it. I'm a guy and have stretch marks from when I was fat, but lost all the fat and now lift weights a lot and look more athletic than the average person I'd say, and most girls don't care about those as long as something makes up for it.

  • Yes you can, there was a girl in my class last semester with acne scars and I thought she was pretty. Also scars make you stand out, and they honestly looked pretty cool.

  • The answers these guys are posting are giving me the biggest smile right now. I struggled with this problem since I was 12 and always thought I was absolutely hideous for it. When I got around 18-19 years old, that is when my skin started to clear up massively. Then at 20-21 it came back hardcore. Totally destroying my confidence even more. I'm currently on Accutane right now trying to fix it. But these guys answers on this question really give me hope that not every guy expects perfect skin.

  • Yes a girl can be pretty with scars. Cassandra from the dragon age series was the most beautiful charachter in the whole game and had a big scar on her face.

    You're pretty too😊
