Why do you think you pick the areas of your body you pick? For some of you this might be obvious, and for some of you, you may have never questioned it, and have no idea, but think about it. I think getting to the root of the problem is important. I know I have my skin. I don't pick my hands and feet, because I have no quams with them. I don't pick my arms and legs, because I tend to cover my legs and my arms look okay. I tend to pick my face, back, legs and scalp, as well as pulling at spit ends, because I abhor them.
