I have pinkish scarring and a few acne spots on my face at any given time. I used to have very severe cystic acne so this is way better and far less painful. Anyway, one of my friends was looking at my face last week when I had my hair pulled back and asked why I didn't cover up the marks and spots. I was surprised and just told her that I don't feel the need to do it because even if they're hidden, they're still there so why bother? She let the subject drop but I wondered if I should do it anyway. I used to wear skin makeup when I was younger, like in middle school and high school 'cause I felt bad about my skin but I got over it and just didn't feel like doing it anymore. I'm in college now so maybe I should do it again because I'm surrounded by all kinds of people with good skin. Or should I leave it alone and keep doing what I'm doing? When you have cystic acne as bad as I did, it's easy to appreciate a little scarring and small spots because they aren't extremely painful and giant lumps like they used to be. I personally don't mind them too much but maybe everyone else does so they need to be hidden. I don't know. Any advice?

Do what you feel. It's acne it happens and we're all older and hopefully passed the phase of calling each other pizza faces lol. If it isn't bothering you then you shouldn't need to wear it and make-up can potentially make it worse. So if you do decide to do make up, make sure to clean or replace your brushes once a month, don't share, and don't leave your make up on overnight.1
