    Ah, yeah, foundation's gross, it feels like a mask. I wear the tinted moisturizer cuz it tends to feel less greasy than other high spf moisturizers, resists sweat, etc. It's very sheer in terms of the 'coverage,' thankfully. If you have stuff to protect the rest of your face overall from sun anyway, it's not necessary. Pardon my overkill, haha.

    Yeah, I mean the way it was described I thought instantly, "Whoa, nice! <3!" But I didn't think of things like acting and photography.. I could see that being an issue to contend with. My scars aren't very noticable at all, no one sees them unless I point them out, but I love them anyways. I constantly look at the ones on my hand from shooting rifles and hot brass kicking back and burning me.

    I've been very fond of every Lush product I've ever tried.. I'm about to try a scalp treatment from them that people with eczema have been writing about. they've used it on their skin directly instead of in their hair, originally made for dandruff and flaky scalps, and said it's been a wonderful factor for calming eczema.. so maybe you can find a natural product to help if you're into the natural skincare thing. THats about all I have to offer.. I've never attempted to treat a scar before.

    I did, however, use Jergens Skin Firming lotion back when they made it, religiously twice a day for a year straight, and it completely diminished the pink stretch marks on my hips from when I went through a feminine growth spurt, going from stick-to-female in like 60 seconds flat. So I think those lotions really do help if you never skip a day and make it a conscious effort. I haven't used any lotions on my hips for that in like 6 years and they have not reverted back at all.

    Yeah, I like the scar on my foot from my surgery in 2010. It's a story, and plus my heel is filled with bone grafts from dead people, so it could even be haunted. And the other scar on my forehead in the upper left corner, going into my hairline from when I was a kid, when a boy chucked a rock at me, because I made fun of the X-Men [he started it, though, I swear]- my skull was exposed and I got 35 stitches outta that. It's not as noticeable now at all unless I actually pointed it out. But again, yeah, they tell silly stories you can look back on later, and enjoy the absurdity.

    There's always the neat added plus of sharing said stories. It's like this innate playground trait of telling people about our hardcore boo-boos and hearing about theirs.. something I hope to never outgrow.

    And about the rifles, damn. I went to a shooting range with my friend, who let me fire his AK-47, rifles get really amazingly hot, I couldn't imagine not handling them without super long gloves or something.. steam practically comes off those things. You're badass, mon.

    I work in an institution which is partly for training actors, and it's made me think about things like that, it's such a fascinating career path, but your physical looks (race, perceived attractiveness, any "flaws", etc) have such a huge impact - almost seems unfair or out of control. Also, I think I missed this when it actually happened but I saw a news story about an actor who got shot on stage in London - he basically lost one eye - I mean the eye is still there but it looks a bit strange. An awful, traumatic thing to happen and he says it affects his work, too - though I understand he's still had some good parts since then.

    I'd notice.

    I wouldn't mind it though. Besides, it'll probably fade. And if it doesn't, corrective procedures over that small an area could be affordable.

    It IS! I can't help but get all prideful when people ask about what happened to my knuckle or my wrist bone. Im like "WELL! Im glad you noticed! Gather round children!"

    47s get ridiculously hot.. I've had a few weapons 'run away' before (when you shoot so much on a gas-cooled weapon that it starts to automatically fire bullets even though you don't pull the trigger.. it happens more-so to machine guns when you don't change the barrel like you're suppose to..) when we were trying to get rid of ammo after a range. It's a pretty cool experience, seeing a barrel turn white from the heat.. its not good for the weapon but still cool to do once or twice. The brass landing on you right after firing a round is worse than the weapon itself though. I've seen some pretty rad scars from people having it fall down their shirt collar and getting trapped and pushed into their skin. Its like a branding.

    Also, I've told my sister who has a rad scar down her forearm on both sides she could do scarification to her arm.. a design in it and around it might make it more feminine and pretty looking.

    *grin* Yeah, I can see all that. Maybe someday I'll stop minding. Probably in a few years when I'm smarting less from the whole thing. :P

    Also now I want a haunted foot!

    It was a narrow wound, anyway. It will be a line, at the worst. I feel like I might be making too much of it. But then, if they offered me plastic surgery (so to speak) they obviously felt it was worth doing something about.

    One friend said she thought I was really lucky it hadn't been worse, and then said "you will just look more stunning...and scars are such a great pickup line." Glad I have friends to offer different sorts of reassurance!

    People tend to assume plastic surgeon = cosmetic body modification type procedures most of the time, it seems [not that you thought that, necessarily]- but they also specialize in proper wound closure of delicate skin like on the face, &/or complex wound closure, in general. It's kinda good in a way that you were referred to one of them, they'll do a bangup job [no pun intended] - & if you have medical insurance, they will cover it as a noncosmetic expense.

Since your scar is just a straight line and probably isn't affecting the "level" or texture of the skin, it'll be even easier to fix.

    I don't mean to repeat anything that's probably said before. I've only read the OP.
