I use to pick at my skin all the time, but my dermatologist told me that picking and popping was bad for the skin and that I was only doing harm to my skin and spreading the infection even more. So what I did was I put a big Sign in front of my mirror that says " do not pick, pop, or touch your face " all in capital letters :D

And I haven't picked in a month and my face is looking better then before :)

It's true not picking helps a lot .

I struggle with this too.. but when I become overwhelmed with temptation I think about times when my skin was so unbelievably awful from my picking; red, swollen, weeping and impossible to conceal with makeup. Picking for me, is followed by feelings of humiliation and total demoralization. Reminiscing about all of these things help me refrain.
