    60 Days of No Skin Picking

    Sorry it has been awhile since I’ve written I don’t truly think my picking was the culprit of my acne. Cause the acne of course did come first. But I did recently see a holistic facialist and I’ve started a DIM supplement because she believes my acne to be all internal. Hopefully it goes well and if I see any major changes I will post a thread on it!

    60 Days of No Skin Picking

    Hey well if it makes u feel better I touched my skin last night too. The good thing is I don’t poke at pores anymore which was my biggest goal but I did pop a really bad Whitehead that was hurting a lot. If u tend to have more red skin thats sensitive I would advise again using any of the acne chemicals and go for a more simple face wash. That’s what I’ve started doing and the redness has gone down a lot. It must be a lot more difficult to go through this without wearing makeup so I commend u. I

    60 Days of No Skin Picking

    Hey Jessica! So for me I realized that not using a cleanser at all was starting to break me out and I think it’s cause simply taking my makeup off with a makeup remover wasn’t enough and there was left over makeup laying on my skin. The only cleanser that’s ever worked for me without making my skin more sensitive is “angels on bare skin” by lush. So I’m using that again and I can already tell my skin is happier! Something to look into but if you have super oily skin I wouldn’t go for it. Apple

    Day 22 i still haven’t gotten my period, I got a tiny new pimple on my right side. To be honest I’m getting the vibe that skin picking isn’t what’s causing acne, I do think it can make it worse but I have had any AH HAH results with not doing it to be honest. May be too soon to tell.

    day 20 my skin is looking better, however I’m pretty annoyed right now because that gnarly pimple seems to have left behind not only a red mark but also a slight roll in the texture of my skin. But it’s fair too soon to say if that’s permanent. Sometimes they fill in on their own when it’s early on.

    Day 14 skins looking pretty good however it’s super oily because I’m about to get my period so now I’m scared. Hoping it keeps up the good work. Only have one medium pimple on the left side from where I dabbed on the spot concealer that turned out now to be non comedogenic on the right side I have tiny tiny bumps by my red marks are still healing I don’t know if I should start using night cream again. Need to give it more time

    Tried to pick at a cyst..what to do?

    Ice it and then put some Vaseline on it to heal the skin by keeping it moist at night

    Day 11 my skin improved a tiny bit everyday I still get pimples but they’re so tiny and they go away within day. Only issue now is how and when will i exfoliate? I’m seeing a lot of flakey skin. This is was the first morning I woke up with an oily t zone which gives me hope that my natural oils are coming back after years of hard washing and making my skin super dry and sensitive

    Day 8 for the past two days I have not been washing with any cleanser anymore and it seems to be speeding the recovery of my skin up. Its a a little bit dry since I don’t use my night cream however I still use my spf in the morning. My skin is doing good and it’s certainly less red. I still use makeup everyday, yes I know it’s bad but trust me I’ve tried without it and I know it wasn’t causing the breakouts. So when I take it off I use ponds cold cream cleanser (aka put the cream on then

    Day 7 Stupidly tried a new foundation that did not make my skin happy and have some new small pustules. Yay for me being an idiot. Lmao but still no picking PS. The gnarly pimple has gone totally flat and is almost normal skin color. This is amazing since I’m usually left with a red scar forever

    60 Days of No Skin Picking

    I continued my normal daily routine. Which consists of a Salylic acid face wash twice a day, my neutrogena moisturizer with spf 30 for the day and at night my neutrogena light night cream. Day 5 Today I’m noticing a good change in my skin. That gnarly pimple has flattened out very much and is now a light pink shade. I continue to dab Vaseline on it at night when I go to bed. As for the rest of my skin all those tiny pimples have gone done immensely. Overall my face looks less red. Hoping it

    Day 4 Great news! The gnarly pimple had this dry skin on top of it that was half off, I used my tweezers to pull it completely off, and all of the tips of the pimple erupted. I cleaned it up, put some vaseline on it and covered it with a bandaid. Its gone done immensely in size. Turns out if I dont touch any of my pimples if it needs to come out itll do it one way or another on its own, and this way there is no self-inflicted skin damage. All of my other pimples have shrunk dramatically. I wil

    Hey! thank you! yeah i think your best bet right now would be a neosporin and a bandaid. Just do anything possible to keep it covered and moist so the hole fills in from the inside out, not just from the edges. I would do the bandaid for a couple days. After that I usually would keep it moist at night with a little bit of vaseline.
