    Day 1

    So i'm starting this blog to hold me accountable for picking at my skin. I'm very good at disciplining myself when needed, but for some reason I can't stop picking at my skin! I tell myself "NO MORE PICKING" but 10 min later, I find myself in front of the mirror... touching my face for any bumps :'( and then pick pick pick. Hopefully, by writing this blog, i'll be able to force myself to stop - for the sake of each entry! I know one reason why I haven't stopped picking is because I haven't

    Day 8

    Day 8 - picked at two spots.. one spot on the side of my left face. honestly I don't even know what I was picking at cuz.... yeah I don't know. welp, welcome new red mark number one. then i picked at a little bump (grain like sebum) on my jawline. welcome new red mark number two. disappointed at myself for the jawline pick. it was there, minding its own business and I go bothering it. I need to remind myself, i'd rather have bad texture skin rather than weird color skin. if the bumps are fle

    Day 13

    Day 13- Didn't pick today. Now that im seeing good results, ive started to care less and obsess less about picking at my skin. I can't believe I didn't do this sooner! Im hoping I don't cave in I shoulda went to the derm years ago! I was always scared of the initial break out so I put it off till now, but I didn't get any initial break outs... and apparently you're not suppose to with antibiotics which does make sense since its suppose to kill the bacteria, not purge it out. harharhar

    Day 17

    Day 17 - picked at two spots today. damn, and I was doing so well... but I needed some sort of relief. Life has been a bitch this week. I've also been only getting 4 hrs of sleep the past 5 days... which is why I think I got that pimple I mentioned in my last two blogs. Its most likely a cyst :'( I see the white head, but its too deep for me to get! ahhhh the horror of cysts. It hurts. Ive been drowning it in duac every morning and night, although I doubt that'll be much help since its expired d

    Day 20

    Day 20 - Entry's gonna be long. Topic 1: minocycline side effects Topic 2: what I picked on my face Topic 3: pimple updates Topic 4: vitamin c horrors Skip around haha ----------- I started off today feeling super tired and very crappy. I was a bit depressed, especially about my skin. It felt hopeless... I didn't know why but then I realized its probably my antibiotics every since I switched from solodyn brand to the generic minocycline, I started feeling super tired... more than I

    Day 28

    Day 28 - Same as yesterday, I had to wear full coverage make up so I ended up using my dr. jart bb cream. After I took it off, I had 8 more new clogged pores which I picked out. Got out 7 clean and easy and clear, but one of them I broke skin. Its gonna scab. Ugh. dr jart silver label u are horrible. It doesn't last that long either. it looks good for the first 2 hrs. and then it starts cracking. not flaking, but little tiny cracks everywhere, like a dry desert floor. I think my skin oil dissolv

    Day 9

    Day 9 - picked at a black head, got a good sucker out. Its on a part of my face that I can't really see, so I don't really care if it leaves a mark LOL. also picked at something on my nose.... i'm ashamed. two picks... need to get this under control! I've decided to lessen my usage of duac to once every two days... I need my skin to heal and I know bp actually hinders it since it kills good and bad cells. Also! I bought a 1.0mm dermaroller. it should arrive in 2 weeks. Ive used it befor

    Day 11

    Day 11 of trying to control my picking Week 9 of my duac + solodyn treatment Today, I stop taking solodyn and start taking the generic brand (financial reasons). My derm said I have to take the generic brand on an empty stomach... but my stomach is never empty!!! ahhhhh I picked at one spot today, but it wasn't bad. Anyways, i'm excited to say that my skin is definitely improving! I wore make up for the first time in a month and it was awesome! I had to go somewhere quickly and hell no

    Day 24

    Day 24 - washed my face and one of the big scabs came off. I thought to myself, oh so the other scab might be ready to come off too since they kind of happened at the same time. So I began to pick at the other scab and it initially started peeling off nicely.... I tore the whole thing off and I was wrong -_-;; there was still 10% that wasn't ready and it started to bleed a bit. It might just scab over again. Stupid of me.

    Day 29

    Day 29 - Did not pick today so tomorrow is day 30 and I will be posting pictures! I dermarolled today. I haven't been counting the days but I think its about 10 days since my first dermaroller session? Can't say ive seen good results (its just one session) but I haven't seen bad results which is still good news. I went a little rougher today since I was use to the pricking pain, but hopefully not too rough for my skin to handle. I've done some research, and I think i'll be buying the este

    Day 18

    Day 18 - picked at two spots today. not too much damage really. got 4 hrs of sleep again -_- grr The cyst hasn't gotten bigger since yesterday, nor has it gotten smaller... so i'm still nervous of its outcome. It's drowning in expired duac. Im so tired. The red marks are slowly getting better still. Very slowly. The improvement isn't as dramatic as the first two weeks. still better than no improvement. right? so tired...

    Day 26

    Day 26 - Didn't pick today either. great~ The minocycline is no longer making me depressed, but it still is making me really tired... actually, that's why I didn't pick today. Didn't have the energy. LOL Another note, Duac is excellent for getting rid of the black heads on my nose. So crazy

    Day 10

    Day 10 - I picked at one spot this morning.. its cuz of my theory. I have this theory that a red mark won't fade if the infection (aka sebum, blackhead, whitehead, whatever) is still there. No matter how many years go by, if the infection is not removed (and usually it doesn't dissolve by itself :/) the redness will never go away! Which forces me to pick it out by all means necessary ;; Maybe my theory makes me sound silly.. haha sorry The spot I picked at today is a spot I picked at bef

    Day 19

    Day 19 - sucks I have to put on duac with my fingers.. cuz I feel bumps anyways, I picked at one spot but it wouldn't come out, so I stopped before I did any more damage. I'll try again tomorrow. And the cyst hasn't grown or gotten smaller today either - but it doesn't hurt anymore! and I think i'm getting a pimple on my right cheek. I THINK. lol. Probably cuz im nearing my period. AH I hate periods!

    Day 21

    Day 21 - Picked at a spot. Got the gunk out and did some damage to the surrounding skin, but not to the point till it was bleeding :/ oppies.... I got my dermaroller today! w00t! 1.0 mm. I rolled my chin and got some light spotted bleeding. I was surprised cuz that didn't happen when I rolled last year. It was pretty cool, not gonna lie. You can hear the needles piercing ur skin - sounded like mini bubble wrap being popped at once hahahaha didn't hurt! but definitely felt some sort of sensa

    Day 2

    Day 2 -It's only day 2, can't say I see much improvement I tried to resist the urge... but I picked at one spot. thankfully, I didn't do any damage! it was only for 5 sec... Big improvement I did eat very unhealthy today.. 3 chili dogs from weinershnitzle and ramen and pepsi..... I'm not too sure if diet is a contributing factor to my acne. I've never had consistent outcomes. Usually, I get a pimple right away if I wasn't able to get a good night's rest.... but with food, iono. Hopefull

    Day 4

    UGH! my whole entry was deleted. Fuckin gateway sucks as balls. Day 4- I don't wanna rewrite this whole thing again -_-;; So i'll just brief it I picked at one spot in between my brow; I don't know what the damage is yet. I'll have to see tomorrow. Either i'm crazy or the redness on the right side of my face got darker.... or the left side got lighter? I also came across this thread Bible verses to help stop picking! It's so awesome! It really inspired me while I was reading it, so

    Picking Of The Skin

    I have been picking my skin/acne for about a year and a half. I have tried to stop and I can-as long as there is somebody watching me or supporting me, but when I am alone I cannot. Perhaps, if there is another one of you who is also trying to stop, but find it difficult we could be Anti-Picking Partners. We could email, text, and/or message each other frequently and work together to stop this and if we fail we can support one another and get back on track. So..anyone want to be my buddy? A

    Day 12

    Day 12 - didn't really pick at anything... cant report much today cept that I switched around my routine a tablet of zinc after lunch, another one after dinner, then my antibiotic at midnight... since I figured that's when my stomach would be most empty? haha

    Day 22

    Day 22 - didn't pick today. the cysts are definitely shrinking and so are the pimples. although I think the one on my right cheek might have been a bug bite and not a pimple;; haha

    Day 3

    Day 3- Picked at only one spot! I was washing my face and a scab from a pimple I picked last week came off. Pus oozed along, so I just decided to squeeze everything out. it came out pretty clean. that should be the end of that. to prevent more picking, I stopped myself from scoping out other areas of my face (SUCCESS!) I really think having this blog to report to every day is helping a lot If I skip even a day, I know it'll be the end of me D': As for redness reduction, ya know, too early t

    Day 23

    Day 23 - picked at one spot. I was plucking my eyebrows and it ended up in me scouting out for things on my face T_T It was a small pick so not too damaging, but as of now I know have two dark scabs on my face from the picks before. The cyst on my brow has definitely decreased and I hope it stays that way. Hoping its not the calm before the storm type of deal! Man, I really wanna try prescription duac and not the expired samples my derm gives me.
