Picking at your skin and at your blemishes is a serious problem for many prone to acne. I know firsthand what picking is all about. I myself am a former picker—I admit it. I’ve always said that I went into this profession so I could do what I love—picking! And I justified my own problem by saying, “I’m licensed. I know what I’m doing.” Luckily, I finally had the self-discipline and gave up picking in 2001 (as a New Year resolution) and my skin has never been happier. (Not to say that I don’t have moments of weakness.)
I have created a No Picking Skin Contract that you can sign and commit to keeping your hands off your face so you can have a clearer, less-scarred skin. Give it a try! Download a free printable PDF here.
