Your boyfriend already knows you wear makeup to mask your acne. He changed the subject when you bring it up because he doesn't want you to feel uncomfortable.

As far as being depressed about your skin, I am in the same boat as you. I still have yet to find a medication to treat my acne. I am in the dark.


I am 22 years old, and I've been dealing with acne for about 8 years of my life.
I have tried product after product.
About 2 years ago, I went on Accutane, and my skin cleared up alot. Of course, after a year or so, the acne came back. My dermatologist says my skin is not bad enough to go back on Accutane. But it is bad!

I have been seeing my boyfriend for almost 2 years. I know he loves me very much, but I am scared he might leave me. We never talk about my skin. I wear makeup every time I am around him. Everytime I bring it up, he says I look fine, and changes the subject. It's like he is pretending its not there. I love him so much and I am so scared that one day, I will accidentally run into him with no makeup on, and he can't help but face the truth. I know that if he really loved me, he would stick by my side. Everyone says that. But I don't ever want face that day. I can't be 100% sure he would stay with me.

I have been so depressed lately about my skin. I am currently trying out Alesse. There is an initial breakout so far. I wonder how long it will last? I am also switching between Clindomycin (I think) and Differin gels.
I just want your opinions.

If you are in a relationship, how do you have such positive outlooks?[/QUOTE]
