Maybe you got so wrapped up in picking more than you intended because you were anxious/ excited about going away for the weekend? I know when I'm going to do something important I get a little more stressed than usual and tend to pick to release it. I unfortunately don't have any advice for how to stop but as for your skin being red afterwards I put fast acting zit cream on my face after and its gone by the next morning. Please know that you're not alone :)
