And as for your question, it can further your breakouts. The reason behind this is because you are irritating your skin by popping them. So you may pop one pimples but intern you might be getting 2 in place. Just try and stop. I know it is hard because I have pretty severe acne and I just want to pop the crap out of them, but I am not helping my skin, just causing more unwanted breakouts
So lets TRY and keep our faces hands free, shall we?
Also! before I forget, you can be scaring your skin! You do not want to have clear skin with scars and holes in your face! So hands off missy!

And I already have some scarring on my face form popping, it's just so hard!
Do you guys have any tactics that prevent you from popping pimples?

I no longer get pimples, blackheads, lump or bumps any more (so long as I follow the regimen) but I still find myself going into the bathroom to forensically inspect my face. Just these days I don't find anything to pick.... A bit boring really
After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that
I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

here's a few things you can try to stop picking:
- wear gloves
- cut your fingernails really short (it's weird but it works)
- get a thick, gooey moisturizer that will prevent you from wanting to touch your face
- doing things with your hands like typing on a keyboard
hope this helps!

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
