    Sort of depends on how much I like the girl.
    I have mild acne but it hasn't affected me in any way never been to the GP because I'm not bothered.

    Perhaps you can see your GP about it?

    Are you on the pill? Acne is largely hormonal. If you do something to change your hormone levels, you might find it clears up. Worked brilliantly for me. I never found any of these expensive cleansing products to work. Diet changes don't really work either. I think it's mainly self-confidence and self-esteem that acne damages. Guys may not notice your acne anywhere near as much as you notice it but if it's damaging your confidence, you need to do something about it.

    Hey, if they like you already then they clearly like you for you and not your complexion. Obviously some guys will be like oh she has acne, blah, blah, blah. Truth is everyone gets spots or acne in some point in their life, so it's not a big deal, you just have to try ways In order to clear your skin i.e. healthy diet, I hear those fish tablets or whatever are good? Zinc tablets, exercise, washing your face (not scrubbing) twice a day....but yeh if they like you already, then there's no problem?

    Honestly, you notice your acne more than other people.

    How severe is it? There are treatments options available, have you ever tried anything over the counter like Benzoyl Peroxide or seen your doctor about it?

    Benzoyl will dry your skin out, a lot of the spot treatments will, you just have to moisturise well afterwards.

    Have you looked at any home remedies? I haven't tried any so I can't tell you if any of them work, but I hear honey and lemon's good for spots and fading red marks? This could be utter rubbish, but if someone's tried it they could be of better assistance.
