This is a topic I dreaded approaching, but it’s inevitable, so let’s dive right in. Let me get something out of the way before we start:
You do NOT have to have acne to be a skin picker.
Picking at your skin does not require the presence of a pimple. Also, on a personal note – I hate the word “pimple”. I can’t tell you why, it’s just something that gets under my skin (pun intended). So, to that end I will refer to them as zits, acne, breakouts, bumps, and any other word I can use to describe the buildup of oil and dirt that clogs pores. So how do you manage acne to decrease skin picking opportunities?
As a skin picker, there does not need to be an underlying issue with your skin. It is often the case, but hard to tell the cause based on environmental factors, and the constant touching of our skin.
Now, if you do have acne and you are a skin picker, you are aggravating the condition. You need to clear up your skin from within and on the surface.
Notice I didn’t just say “clear up the acne on your face”. This is because, as is the theme here – you are not just picking skin on your face. If you are anything like me, you will pick at any bump you find – on your arms, scalp, legs, etc. It’s all about availability.
You are still going to have the urge, but not having the bumps will make it a bit harder to spend hours demolishing your skin.
By working from the inside this system is guaranteed to give you results. It also has the element to take care of your face topically, since that is what you show the world and where your picking is going to be the most apparent. Also, by having natural ingredients, you won’t need to worry about pouring chemicals into your system. However, it is a bit more labor intensive than other products since it is not just a topical treatment.
But I am guessing that since you are a picker, it is worth the extra time to avoid the extra opportunities.
Of course there are a million other products out there and I have tried the majority of them. I’ve tried over the counter “al la carte” skin care, where you stand there staring at the mass amounts of acne products and pick and choose which ones to use. I’ve tried the complete systems over the counter that cost a fortune and didn’t work. It’s great that you have a guarantee, which means they really value the time you will use this product and your wallet won’t take a hit just to try something new.
There are days when you couldn’t see a bump on my skin just by looking at me. But, I don’t just look at myself in the mirror – I scrutinize every millimeter of my skin. If I don’t have a magnifying mirror, I will just lean over the sink and stare at every pore. When I do have a zit, I take it as a personal offense and wage war with it using my fingernails. If there isn’t anything there in your opinion, I will always find something.
My fingers have become so sensitive to any variation in my skin’s texture that I can detect a bump before anyone will ever see it. Then there is the fact that I can feel a pending bump under my skin without even touching it.
If you aren’t a picker, but reading this because you know someone who is, then it might not make any sense. I kid you not; I have been startled awake by the feeling of a bump coming up under the skin on my face. There are many reasons you pick – but honestly, this is the easiest one to take care of.
