Is it appropriate for the first person POV character to describe his own facial complexions or facial expressions in the novel? In real life, we usually don't consciously notice our own facial expressions when talking to someone. So, I'm having doubts as to whether my first person POV character should describe his own facial expressions, let alone his own facial complexions. So, are the following dialogue examples appropriate for a first person POV? Description of complexion: My face turned red with indignation. "Back off!" Description of facial expression: "You can't be serious. Well..." I said, with a look of confusion on my face.
