I looked at myself in the mirror today and I look jaundiced! Or maybe like I tried to use self tanner, but wasn't very good at it. Idk what is up with my new blotchy Simpson-like face (as if the acne wasn't enough) but if this is the "glow" everyone talks about, I feel ripped-off! lol

My husband thinks I'm "glowing." He says my skin looks so brown. LOL. I'm part Mexican... I'm supposed to be brown.

Haha! So funny, Jenny.

I'm actually stark white all over - on my icon pic, I actually changed the hue on picnik.com because my face was as white as this background. lol

You know the pimples teething babies get all around their mouths? I have that because this acid reflux causes me to spit so much! lol I hate it! No glow for me either.

Lol, I haven't gotten the 'glow' either! All I've gotten were breakouts worse than when I was 16!

i spent more time in the sun this year than i like to-- usually i stay inside and stay very pale all year, or wear SPF maximum lol but i went out with the kids for 20 minutes at a time without sunscreen, and as usual got burned on my first time out back in march, cos i was in florida... and my skin is nice, so maybe i have a glow? idk.

sorry you don't feel like you do!!

yeah i dont have a glow what so ever. I usually go tanning and since I have gotten pregnant my face is completely while and broken out...I have never looked worse, but at the same time I have never been happier...so its a win-lose situation lol.
