Hello, Is anyone suffering from picking your eyebrows until they bleed & scab? I bought $45 tweezers, Rubis, b/c they are extremely sharp & I can Pick brow hairs that haven't even broke through the skin yet. Its compulsive, & I can't stop. This has been going on for over 4yrs, and I'm totally out of control. I've tried throwing them out the window, only to go looking for them hours later. And the fact that I can spend hours picking, disgusts me. My eye skin under both brows is full of scar tissue. I spend tons of money on concealer, & foundation. I should have stock in Sephora. I use Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Mally Beauty, & MakeUp Forever. Those are, I found the best for coverage & concealing. BUT, having said that, I wish I never had to use the products to begin with. Has anyone found anything that helps with stopping this addictive behavior? Ive tried therapy. Last night I caused lots of bleeding under my left brow. And I just kept going. And I'm so tired of feeling so alone. My family asks me to just stop. If only it was that easy. They have no clue. And I'm clueless as well. I started out just trying to get a better arch 4 yrs back, & now I feel helpless to stop. My Dr. put me on anti-depressants, & that didn't work. And I don't know why I feel such a compulsion to disfigure myself every day.
