Day 7

Hi all day 7 and I managed to leave my face alone again yeah! Had a quick look in the mirror earlier and ran my hands over my face but just pulled myself away, washed my face today and went well complexion still looking better feel like im getting a bit better and stricter with myself now which is what I wanted, even slept better last night knowing im letting my skin heal Hope I can keep this up! Ive got so far so many times and Ive fallen back again, the extra moisturiser at night seems to be working well I feel like my skins really gentle in the morning, I think my older scars are fading a bit more noticed today when I was washing my face hoping for the fresher red ones to start fading now and if I leave my face alone I might end up with nice scar free face one day x

Day 5/6

Just a quick note to say that I managed to leave my face alone yesterday and today, both days quite busy so easy to take my mind off it and and my friend sat with me both nights to wash my face at night, al the redness caused by my picking and scratching skin has gone done and my complexion apart from marks looks better Trying to leave the exfoliating, rubbing my face alone to really let it heal, I am also using a lot more moisturiser at night to help aid the healing and after a couple of days obv no change in marks, scars but complexion looking a bit better I know ive had one slip up but I feel more stronger every day I leave my face alone, even if I know its going to take a while to get over all the damage I have done but I keep saying to myself at least im not doing any fresh harm. I have felt a slight ease in the anger and the shame of what I have done for so long now when I have a good couple of days of thinking this is what normal people feel like! lots of love ,

Day 2/3/4!

Hi so did not post on day 2 as I was bad and scratched off some scabs that I had healing and even though I didn't let it get me down like I normally do, I still couldn't come on here and admit I didn't make 2 days I just told myself I didn't make any new marks just hurt some old ones, and tried to not let it get me depressed as I normally go into a week low after hurting my face. I feel good for not letting it totally get to me and am trying to stay in a positive mood Yesterday I had a lovely long bath and did a face mask and pampered myself a bit and felt a bit better I was good and back on track, today I have also been good, I had a chilled no make up day and relaxed and got a friend to hang out with me while I washed my face this evening and feeling good I stayed away from the little stand mirror I always use to examine my face I put it in a wardrobe so I couldn't be tempted to start looking at my face. Anyway that's about it for now marks I picked off starting to go down again now and healing well got to leave them alone! Will promise to write back tomorrow good or bad! hope everyone is well x

Day 1!

Hi all just checking in on day one and have managed to stay clear of hurting my skin good way to start, did have a quick look in mirror just before washing my face but managed to tear myself away, also washed my face on my own and was going to get a friend to wait with me so pleased about that too Have quite a few scabs at the mo from picking my skin the night before so this is when I feel my weakest and usally stare at my skin and am more likely to pick more hoping by week two, if I can make it, that the scabs start to heal and I see a bit of progress to boost me for the next two weeks Feeling a lot more positive about this than previous attempts even though my face is in quite a bad way finding writing this and a few other rules im sticking to helpful I will continue to hide mirror and do all I can to take my mind off worrying about my face (hobbies etc) and wash my make up off as soon as I am home so it feels fresher. Also giving myself a two week no stress time which basically means I haven't planned anything socially other than work so both weekends and evenings im free to just chill and be make up free to boost things Hopefully tomorrow will be just as positive and will try to keep positivity in my head as I find trying to stop so draining if I let it get to me x Take care x
