The verdict When I used to look in the mirror, my acne would be the first thing I noticed. My skin used to be something I thought about all the time. And today, I have a realization: My complexion is now a non-issue. I actually like the girl staring back at me when I look in the mirror. And I'm noticing that I'm friendlier than I've been since elementary school. I'm opening up to people, and I think it's because I don't assume they're just staring at my acne-filled face.
My biggest confidence boost comes from Ben. One morning I notice Ben staring at my face, and out of the blue he says, Claire, you're so beautiful. He touches my cheek as he tells me this. And I start to cry. I flash back to my first date with Ben -- when I was so self-conscious about my skin -- so this is a huge deal for me.
