What is working to get rid of my acne and helps me not pick

SKIN TIPS I'll just go through my routine thats been working for me for the past 2 months. I actually don't have ANY acne right now while typing this literally no pimples. Morning: -A little bit of foaming cleanser/make up remover in one - moisturizer with broad spectrum sunscreen -Tons of mineral make-up that has spf 15 Night -Alot of foaming cleanser/make-up remover in one -anti-wrinkle cream that has Retinol in it This has gotten rid of my acne and I can even see my scars starting to fade on my face. The one thing I think has been really helping though is EXCERCISING. I have a treadmill and walk- I don't even jog or run just walk for 30 minutes every other day and lift 5 pounds weights while I'm walking. As long as you find some way to sweat it'll help your skin so much. NOT PICKING TIPS -Wear tons of make up so you don't want to touch your face during the day and ruin it -Wear clothes that cover your skin that means long sleeves and pants I do this even in hot weather -Cut your nails to the nub so it's hard to use them -Get something soft to feel. I have a really soft stuffed animal I'm 21 and it looks crazy but at night it works because idk the softness calms me down. Maybe petting a cat or dog will help too. This is whats been helping me.
