Hi everyone, I'm new here, I'm just so phyched to read all this stuff and know there is supportive sisters out there. I wanted to know does having acne make you less attractive? I have had acne for 7 years of my 17 years of life. A boy told me last year I was pretty but i needed to get rid of my acne on my cheeks. Because I am really light complexion it stands out, red and sollen, and I feel that is the first thing people notice about me. And I want to hide in my room, because I feel ugly and people at school used to describe me, oh the yellow girl with the zits. A girl I thought was my friend asked me right in front of a bunch of people, have you ever heard of noxema? You know it may sound petty or some dumb teen problem, but it hurts, I mean it really hurts, I get tears thinking even now, about it. I just need to know are you uglier if you have acne, because that's how I feel everyday.
