Red marks even when I don't pick

Recommended Posts

I'm trying really hard not to pick, but it's discouraging. When I refrain from picking, the zit lasts much longer and I still get a red mark. So, it seems to me that picking helps get rid of zits faster and if I'm going to get a red mark regardless, why not pick?

Please talk me out of this logic...

I understand what your saying. I had the habit of picking for awhile and attempted to justify it in much the same way you are. If it is a habit (like cracking your knuckles) just try to find something else to do instead; like twirling your fingers. Some people wear a rubber-band on their wrist and flick themselves with it whenever they go to pick. That isn't one of my most favorite considering I usually end-up giving myself a welt. Those are just a couple ideas to get you started. Remember, what you do in place of picking should never be harming yourself in a different way.
