A-yup. I'm making one of those threads.

So....do you have it? Does it affect your life?

Possible scarring, but my bacne is still there. I've learned to stop caring about it. Sure, people might comment about it whenever I'm wearing a tanktop / swimsuit. But it's whateves.

At least my face rarely gets any blemishes. Perks.

I've got an acne scar and it doesn't bother me much.

Some but the sunlight out here in AZ and the food I eat heals them up pretty well. They are fairly unnoticeable except for the ones on my lower back, those will be gone soon enough.

As far as I know they heal up over time and become fairly unnoticeable but they never truly go away. A lot of mine have faded away to the point where they are unnoticeable but then again I have darker skin due to my ancestry so I dunno about really light-skinned folks.

Huh. Neat. Good reason to get a tan, eh?

haha yeah. I'll explain it a little better here:

To put it in a easier to understand and more technical way: Over time your skin cells fall off as they top-most layer dies and then cells below replace the old cells. This includes your scar tissue if the scars are not extremely deep (bite marks and stab wounds will remain forever due to how deep they penetrate). Acne scars, such as on your face, back or arms fade in time as the scars are not terribly deep (unless you took a knife to them or something equally stupid like a dumbass). So yes they fade with time, it just takes awhile. Like years.

But yes, darker skin helps a lot. Being Native American and not burning easily helps a SHIT TON so I got lucky with my genetics as I don't burn. At all. Ever, I think the worst I've ever had was a first degree burn from sunlight and the worst burn was second degree from accidently hitting my hand on the oven taking food out.

My whole face is covered with scarring from acne and from when I got chicken pox.
So even though my face is mostly clear of acne, you can't even tell with all of the scarring.

Both my mother and father had bad acne, and still do, so I'm guessing I just got some really shitty genes. I have to take care of my skin twice as much as a normal teenager/young adult because my skin is sensitive and the smallest amount of oil or make-up makes me break out horribly.

But, everyone has their flaws, right? Mine is just hideous skin.

no idea about acne scars but, i have a large amount of scars that have over the years slowly went away. i have a pretty significant scar on my knee that is circular from an accident that had gotten infected(sucked bad) that is not nearly as noticeable anymore. i also have tattoos that divert away from them. most of the smaller cuts and wounds even when they are there kind of blend if that makes sense.

I've had both, though my scars are accentuated by my lighter skin. It seems to be genetic (my father had it as well), dietary, and stress induced. I was at one point very self conscious of it that I habitually applied makeup to mask it, and resorted to prescription topical medication. In recent years it has ceased, with only scars as remnants.

I used to have lots of acne,but now there are only scars left and few acne.It really affects my life,I want to get rid of them but I can't really find any powder that fits my skin tone,they are all too darker than my skin tone and it is very easy to notice.My bacne are horrible so I choose to wear things that cover my back.
