Don't pick girly! I know it's SUPER hard. But Differin thins the top layer and any
marks you make are going to be a little more intense than before. I actually messed
up and have a stupid red mark on my face now because I pushed too hard. Your skin
WILL look amazing if you give it time and don't harass it. Get a gentle clay mask or opaque
spot treatment and use that when you want to pick.

Lumixyl is much safer than hydroquinon. But it's expensive.....

californiaEstie, your posts and faith in Differin give me hope, haha.
I also can't resist picking, especially when it's the kind with a white dot that's just begging to be popped out. For me, when a pimple reaches that stage, I just always, always pop it right away. Are we supposed to leave those alone, too? I just always assumed I was supposed to pop it when it gets like that. And blackheads. A lot of people say blackheads will not go away on its own, and needs to be extracted. Does anyone know if that's true?
