I just finished picking my face and now it's all red and bumpy with nail imprints!!

I am a 23 yr old female who has been picking my face since I was 15. Ofcourse it ruined most of my life because it kept me from going out to do things that I want or even with friends. I would pick my face everyother day and end up with either dark scabbed areas or big zigs that are huge that hurts. I wear alot of make up but am very careful about the product. Although I wear make up it's still embarrassing because you can still see my black heads. I just found this site and it made me feel better because I'm not lost alone. Just recently I started using some products and it's slowly working for me so I thought I'd share it with you since all skin is different. (This is a daily routine also after I have picked my face). I wash my face 3 times a day with CLINIQUE MILD BAR SOAP. After that I apply NEUTROGENA'S OIL FREE MOISTURIZER. When the lotion is dried I then apply CLEAN & CLEAR'S PERSA-GEL 10 MAZIMUM STRENGTH. After that is dried, I cut fresh ALOE VERA and rub that all over face and neck. This is alot to take in but beauty takes time and it's so worth it. I JUST PICKED MY FACE 4x eRlier today within a 6 hour period. But the aloe Vera has calmed down the redness nd bumpyness. Anyhow like I said this might or might not work for you because all skin is different but I thought that if it helped me then it might just help someone else too. I love you all for being so brave and we are not freaks. You can do it! God bless you all. BTW YOU CAN ALWAYS EMAIL ME FOR ANY ?'s!!!
