Day 4 - It could be worse

So I went to the chemist and got the Clean and Clear face wash and Oil of Olay moisturiser. This morning the Benzoyl Peroxide arrived in the post so I'm good to go treating my face.As for picking, I've not been too bad but I've been no angel. I've not had any massive picking sessions and my face is looking a lot better for it, even before I started the regime. My back however is an entirely different story, I just cant help but run my fingernails along my back and pick at any little bumps, it really is my worst habit. I've cut my nails back to try to stop but its not really working, I must try harder! So I'm going for a shower now to start the regime, wish me luck!Todays pick count: my back - loads





Day 1 - The beginning

So I thought I'd write a blog so I can share my experiences on the regime and my attempt to stop picking at myself. I'm a compulsive picker. I do it without thinking often i'll be just sat watching tv and my boyfriend will tell me off for it. The thing is my skin doesn't actually look too bad when I leave it alone for a few days. After a massive picking session I always feel guilty. I've got more spots on my back than my face and with summer coming up I want to be able to wear loose tops and dresses. I'm in the uk so I'm going to try the alternative products suggested in the message board and see how it goes. Yesterday I ordered 3 tubes of 2.5% benzoyl peroxide gel and some 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid body lotion from Paula's choice. I'm off to town to get some Oil of Olay and Clean and Clear after this entry to complete everything I need. The regime: Face 1. Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser Sensitive 2. Panoxyl Aquagel 2.5 3. Oil of Olay Beauty Fluid Sensitive Back 1. Clean and Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser Sensitive 2. Panoxyl Aquagel 2.5 3. Paula's Choice Weightless Body Treatment with 2% Beta Hydroxy Acid ! Wish me luck Today's Pick count: 1
