Find out the severity of your symptoms with this free online test
Ah! Never look closely into a mirror while tweezing your eye brows! I can not explain how huge the urge to pick was. I'm getting this huge zit on my cheek and it hurts, but I know I just can't let myself pick even one. I know I won't be able to control myself. *Breathe* I always have to remind myself to do that. I read somewhere on here that although we feel the urge to pick will vanish once we do it, once we pick it has a much more negative affect. It's a quick fix to one problem and disastrous to another. So, when you find yourself leaning close to the mirror, with your fingers ready to go - Breathe. Step back. Reevaluate why you want to pick. As you step back, notice how fine your skin looks, and think about the likelihood that someone out there is taking a magnafying glass to your face and scrutinizing it more than you do. Once you realize the likelihood is zero, smile and walk away.
