Currently, I have no active acne but I really want to maintain the progress and not aggravate my acne further by squeezing/touching my face! I have these few bumps under my skin which are healing spots but take forever to go away. I'm really afraid to make them inflamed again cos they were huge and took so long to calm down.
My aim in this challenge is to see how far I can go without picking and while I will not restart the challenge when I breach the rules, I want to keep track of my habits so I can be more aware of myself and hopefully find better means to stop my bad habit. Also, it'll remind me of the repercussions of my picking and deter me from doing further.
I'll be starting from tomorrow(picked a little today) and feel free to join me!
P.S I will be using diluted fresh lemon juice as a toner+treatment at night.
1) it helps me even out my skin tone and calms down redness, and very importantly,
2) it stings/itches like crazy on open skin ie. punishment for me when I pick my skin ):
If anybody is interested to know more about lemon juice, do leave a post and I'll try my best to answer with respect to my personal experience.
