I have been told that i am lucky to have such nice skin and i think so too but i pick my skin anyway. I started when i was 14 i would pick/squeeze my nose. When i was 15 i started picking my nose and forehead too and would conceal the red marks with concealer. When i was 16 i started squeezing my whole face and it got so bad that my skin started to peel off on my nose ( kinda like when you get sunburnt) from damaging the skin. So i would put moisturiser on and started using foundation and concealer. People started to notice, even a lady at a dress shop asked me if i was picking my face !! When i was 17 it got even worse. My skin started peeling off my nose and forehead. I started to peel off the skin and the scabs using tweezers! other wise i would have a flaky face. Every day i would get up early so i could conceal my red, flaky, scaby, skin. It has made be become withdrawn, quiet and shy not wanting people to look at my face. Im often late to things because of it taking me an hour to cover up my blemished face.Its affecting my everyday life.I have small scaring on my nose and forehead. Even though people can not see the white heads i still pick them anyway because i can not stand having them under my skin. I don't have acne but since ive been picking i get pimples more. 4 years and i haven't been able to stop. I am trying to only pick once a month and use bior strips ( when i menstruate because thats when the body naturally detoxes). Some advice would really be appreciated. or how to get rid of black heads/ white heads without picking them. Thankyou.
