Day 87 by ErinBird Day 87 by ErinBird
Name : Insecure ~ 87.366

I am .. I'm sure so many people are too .
I have acne , and I find it hard to post self portraits of myself as it's embarrasing for me . I've tried so many things to get clear skin , but it just never happens .. I wish there was just something I could do - and this really affects me . I feel so unconfident and insecure about it . I even dodge mirrors and can't make straight eye contact . I wish I wasn't insecure , but I just am . Of course I try and apply make up to cover it up , but its not that good :/

If you have any ideas on how to reduce acne , can you please comment ?

Jesus , this photo was so hard to take .. I had to put the camera on the stairs and all and the lighting and argh .

*UPDATE thanks everyone for their suggestions , now i'm taking medication to help my skin clear up and it's doing an amazing job !

Enjoy , comment & fave !

I'm not sure if you still have this problem but I'm told that having a lemon (peel and all) is good for your skin or any citrus really. The oil in the skin of the fruit helps stimulate your gall bladder (which is good for a number of things) and purify your skin though it may drive impurities out through your skin at first. Also drinking more water and using essential oils may help.

Always be confident :aww: You are beautiful and if you didn't post self-portraits, I would say you're beautiful because of your inspiring pictures. Keep up the good work!

I'm insecure thus I am painfully loyal to people in my life in hopes that they will not leave me and I will have something or someone constant in my life. This is possibly why I can't let go of certain people in my life.

I edit out my zits too (and I'm 26.) *sigh* But I have found what helps me the most is called "Nature's Cure." Chewables to take night and day and a cream to apply. I am doubtful they sell it in England (which sucks considering it's where I'd like to go) but I do buy mine online and perhaps you could too? I have no idea. But good luck with it. (: And drink a lot of water! Which I'm sure you're told!
