I used to be a skin picker

And oh boy was my acne horrible. I wish I knew back then what I do now. It could have saved me so much scarring, misery, tears, etc.

So yeah basically: stop picking. It doesn't help. It only makes things worse unless you have magical skin like my boyfriend.

What I have learned: If you have a zit, best thing to do is wait for a white head to appear. Then take a pre sterilized needle (I have diabetic lancets ready since they come pre-sterilized) use that to take the white part off, exfoliate the area using uncoated aspirin dissolved in water to make a paste. Let it dry, rinse it off, then put on a nice dab of clean and clear persagel 10. I alternate between that and pure tea tree oil.

If there is no head, you can start exfoliating over the area, and i've found that helps the white part come to the surface quicker.

Hope this can help someone.
