I did a bunch of research into what they call “self-injurious skin picking”, which is a big problem for a lot of people around here. Picking at your skin is really irritating and can cause ongoing breakouts.
I made a page about skin picking, and put together a “Chill Out Program” which incorporates cognitive behavioral techniques as well as some other good stuff. I wanted to see if some of you guys wanted to BETA test the program with me before I made it live on the site. I’m going to be doing it with you because it turns out that skin picking is pretty much identical to nail biting, which I’ve been doing since second grade! So I’m going to start the program on Monday. Want to join me!?
