I have to write to you because I have the exact same problem. This morning, I only had 3 pimples on my face and all I had to do was leave them alone for a few days, and I would have a good complexion. But NO, I just can't leave my face alone. I try to squeeze out the 3 pimples, and fail, of course, making them worse, but because I failed, I need to pursue other 'possible clogged pores.' Well, I am able to squeeze a few different ones that really didn't need to be touched because they were not even noticeable, but now I have new red marks on my face that weren't there before and I have to wear even MORE makeup to cover up this mess. I too am a pretty girl, and when my face is clear (which is hardly ever) I feel so good about myself. WHY do I do this to myself? I ALWAYS make it worse, never better. I've tried everything. I have scars. I always notice how nice other women's complexions are and feel like crap about myself. I feel your pain. You are not alone.

hey sirenchick, i have the same problem, only i can't wear makeup cuz im a dude. Also i have mild acne on my arms and back, cuz im a dude who was gifted with high testosterone levels( thanks dad). So i have the benefit of a plethora of unpopable pimples to waste hours and hours of my time. If u find a way to make urself ignore them let me know
