  1. hi all! =) Every where i here dermatologist say dont pick - but i feel like i want to hear more, like what will happen to the pimple if i dont pick , what will happen to the yellow puss, will it come back???? I dont really have problem skin, but occasionally i get a pimple or two. I usually leave them alone and it feels like a veerrryyy long process- they become yellow, they become big and yellow, they start drying out, they shrink , they leave a bit of a bump or red mark for a few weeks and
  2. hey , sorry I took so long =) im glad your not a picker =) I tried cutting out gluten , wheat , sugar, diary and yeast too, but didn't really notice a differnce, however I noticed a difference when I was eating less =) haha. And realistically I wasn't able to elimanate the food group for more than 2 months, it's really hard becuz my body just started craving that food. Well this is my second water fast , I have never intentionally done it for my skin , however it it definitely makes a big diffe

  4.

  8. my opinion is to stop picking at them , even if they get clogged--- our body is amazing at taking care of itself--- it doesnt need us to squeeze the puss out!!! so if you just leave it it will 'heal' all by itself!! and never come back,, because everytime you squeeze that pore you disrupt it , so it will come again. You blood stream contains enzymes which is targeted to 'eat' the sebum or puss after a while , it takes a while though, you will see a pimple (unsqueed) that is so ripe and yellow sh
  9. hi there, im 18 and i have the same problem, i find that its not the products or weather , which is what i always thought , but its stress, i have been on the move ( changing countries) for like 3 years almost and since then i started getting some pimples,, but i always thought my face was just breaking out- until i started keeping a journal and then i realized that i'm continously picking my face (even if it was every 4th day, i was picking) I have recently stopped picking for almost a month
  10. hey so far i havnt picked , and face is slowly starting to heal.. for me its the same bad eating causes me to pick,,, especially sugary food. If i eat junk i always start pickin. Thats why i think a diary is helpful-- but i'm just too lazy. Because i feel that junk food drain my energy and then i'm sorta dissapointed that i ate all the crap, which then leads to overaaeting or being grumpy or just simply trying to do something good like "fixing " my face... i dunno but its complicated... its weir
  11. wow good luck,, today is day one for me =) iknow how tempting a pimple can be but just try and keep busy,, and when you do go in the bathroom to wash your face etc,, ALWAYS make sure before hand that you wont pick-- give yourself a pep talk... good luck let me know how you r going =)
  12. Well, i picked so badly this weekend that my face is so itchy!! but so far so good. No picking so far. i covered it all up with makeup today,, so i looked normal,, but i almost couldnt sleep last night- because i was so woried about my face! I want to start i diary and write down all my emotions etc, this way i can figure out what emotions and feelings leads me to pick. O 'yea one thing that does help me is if i constantly remind myself that i can't and shouldnt 'FIX" and control everything incl
  13. hey something that might help is if you put TEA TREE oil on ,, moring and night , but just one drop. I had i similar experience with a pimple/cyst that i squeed the life out- it healed but there was a bump and it had quite a dark colour for a couple of months- till i started using tea tree oil about a month ago,, its almost gone- but i stopped like 2 weeks ago try this i'm sure it will help =) let me know
  14. hey in my opinion you should just leave it alone,, no creams no nothing, if you leave it it might look worts at first , but it will heal our skin takes care of itself- also if you leave it it will heal completely , but if you keep on 'fixing' it , it will just come back etc. so let your skin take care of itself, ps this is very hard for me good luck!! let me know how its going =)
