I'm in. I keep on making excuses why it is ok to pick my face, but it's not. The day after I pick somewhere, pimples always form, I am driving myself crazy. I will give myself a small reward every day I go without picking, and If I make it 30 days.....a big reward! any ideas?I will start thinking of one Posted Image I've tried this so many times before, but it seems like after I make it a few days, I forget how bad it is for my skin and start doing it again.

I cant keep my hands off my face! and I feel so ashamed about it. Sometimes ill hide away in the house for days at a time because of the stupid scabs IVE caused. Its an incredibly frustrating and vicious cycle. I pop and pick at clogged pores.. little Nothings on my face and I make them BIG red problems. I feel like I have no will power. Everytime i see a mirror I try to find little bumps to "get rid of" thinking im going to clear my skin when I KNOW its just gonna make my face worse. I finallly think Ive figured that I have Dermatillomania . I'm pretty postive I do and Ive started to keep a log just like it says to on this website! I need to build my will power and knowing now that I'm not the only one struggling with this is helping LOTS!

so thank you for being vulnerable and helping me to find support<3

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! Posted Image

So here we go again, DAY 1. Promise to update no matter what.
Glad to see some people have been doing it!

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!

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.
