There are few things as annoying as having a breakout and knowing full well that by covering it up with makeup, you’re only making it worse. But then if you don’t, at least for me, it ends up heavily weighing down my confidence (and it doesn’t matter how many times my girlfriends tell me they don’t notice or my boyfriend tells me I’m beautiful).
