just think of it. when u stop ur skin will get better smile.gif well i have the same problem.. i just learned how to really pop a pimple today. u have to use a clean needle and puncture it first. i used to just pop em. doing it with a needle it comes out nice and easy w/ lil to no pressure. the old way i used to do it made really bad scars. can't believe i've been doing it the old way for seven years omg.

I'm a picker, too, even tho I know you shouldn't. But I have found that if you have popped your pimple, and then apply Epicuren's probiotic lotion, it actually works faster than if you had not popped it! And then it goes away so quickly you will not have a chance to pick at it again (if tempted, reapply the probiotic!)

In the worst case, see if you can pick up a nial chewing habit smile.gif
