About as barefaced as you get 😛
Here’s a point to ponder, Ladies (and any Gents lurking) 🙂
Do your skin flaws bother you?
Someone pointed out to me recently that I have pigmentation and freckles on my cheeks. Its pretty obvious and something I don’t try to pretend I don’t have but to me, it isn’t the most serious problem to have. You can also tell from some photos and its visible in this before/after picture in the most recent BB Cream review. I also have pits from old acne scars as a teen (when I and Mom didn’t know any better) and some redness/puffy under eye circles when I don’t have enough rest or my eyes get tired. I do use concealer and foundation to even out my skintone and to diffuse the freckles/pigmentation. But I don’t aim for a perfect canvas every time.
I don’t know. Perhaps its just me, but I just find it too much work to cover up every flaw on my skin (which would take me hours!) and so I just do what I can and live with what I can’t. As I often say, it adds character 😛
Over time, and with a bit of diligence, my pitted acne scars have started to flatten out. My pigmentation/freckles aren’t getting worse and I don’t do very much with them either. I use a whitening product when I remember and I use sunscreen all the time to ensure it doesn’t get worse. So far, so good *touch wood*
I guess I’m not too bothered by the flaws on my skin. I don’t bother with primer to smoothen the skin surface; and I do walk around barefaced although on work days, I do make the extra effort to look a little bit more polished. Usually a touch of sheer foundation and a good concealer does the trick for me to even out my base. Enough to blur the imperfections but I’m not obsessive about ensuring that they are fully covered and concealed to look flawless. I just conceal enough to make me feel just a touch more confident about facing people without them playing “join-the-dots” in their head.
Your say: Do your skin flaws bother you? Are you diligent about making your face look as flawless as possible?
