Good luck to all. I know how annoying and hard it is having to sit there knowing you want to pop every single zit on your face.

So, i started off with only for or three pimples about 3 months ago. It was my first time getting any so of course I made a big drama about it. I picked my face before the tip would even become white so after picking so much I caused acne. I then decided to put vitacilina on my face which actually caused pimples because it is very oily. At the same time it dried my skin. To make matters worse, when the pimple was gone, the vitacilina caused the spot to look very dark which took about a week to fade. After I stopped putting the ointment on my face, my skin started to look way better, the only problem was that I kept picking my skin. I have stopped picking my skin for only a day now because I came across this post and the redness is already almost gone!

I think I'm going to try this! I have been picking my skin for as long as I can remember. I know that my skin picking is the reason I keep on breaking out... the more I pick the more breakouts I seems to get. Day 1 for me! cheer.gif

Hi everyone! :)

Sorry I stopped updating this thread. I couldn't even finish my 30 days eusa_wall.gif and it's driving me crazy. There are days when I don't pick, but sometimes I do. My skin is looking much better lately because of my new regimen, but I know i'll ruin it if I don't stop.

So here we go again, DAY 1. Promise to update no matter what.

Glad to see some people have been doing it!

I know picking is the main reason why i have so many acne.

I will stop touching my face or picking pimples from today.

Hopefully,my skin can get better before xmas.

Good luck everyone(:

I'm in. I know the only reason my face is as bad as it is is because of my picking. Once I start it feels impossible for me to stop. I end up with huge scabs all over my face. WISH ME LUCK! Day 1 =]

So I'm on day 13 and almost all my acne is gone, I have only two small pimples now but severely dry skin now because i dried out my face from washing it way too much with strong products. Now I can't wash my face with any cleansers and I must wear a lot of baby lotion.since I started the picking challenge my face is very noticeably clearing up. Thank you for promoting this!

Thank you so much for this! This is motivating me not to pick.

I definitely need to do this.....tomorrow will be day 1. I know some days I don't but most days I do....I try to limit it to like only squeezing 2-3 blackheads and one "other" (cysts or whiteheads or whatever) a day but I really need to stop it all. My problem is the satisfaction of the small part being clearer when I do it.

Day 2. Doing good, can't help feeling my skin for bumps though.


Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:

I'm gonna get in on this challenge as well. My acne goes away until I pick at it.

Day 1 (already kind of picked this morning, getting ready for work....won't pick tonight!)
