When my acne was a lot worse, I wouldn't shower with my guy. I wouldn't swim with him either, I'd tell him that my derm said it'd make my skin worse.

I think the key here is to treat it like a temporary situation. It didn't eradicate my insecurity, but it helped a lot that I talked to him about it or commented on it sometimes.

I used to cover myself with makeup... Seriously layers of it, concealer, foundation. I'd hide my face with my hair. I'd only show people one side of my face! I would refuse to make out in the light...

No matter how much I psyched myself, I could never really come totally clean-faced. Now that I hardly have acne (but a ton of scars it's gross), I can actually face my guy, shower with him in dim hotel rooms.

I was able to do this because I talked to him once about it. I just told him "I'm so frustrated I have bad skin, youshould feel lucky you have no zits and never have to go to the derm". It was totally out of the blue, I'd never talked about my skin before. But it comes to a point when there's no denying they see through your makeup. He was so nice about it, he hugged me and told me I was beautiful. Yay
