Hi everyone! I'm brand new here and have just started my mission to stop picking. Makeup makes picking so easy. I can make myself look halfway normal (at a distance, at least) even after a really bad session. Here is a side-by-side comparison from this morning (before and after makeup): http://i.imgur.com/1WM4uDm.jpg. I have been able to stop picking for about a week or so at a time in the past, and my skin actually looks presentable when left alone. I'm just now starting to commit more seriously to stopping and think I should be able to resist the urges for at least the upcoming week. My plan is to then throw out my foundation/coverup (once I can get away with being in public without it). My thinking is that without makeup as my crutch/enabler, I'll be muchhhhh less likely to pick. I am far too concerned about keeping my picking secret to go out in public with uncovered sores. Hopefully this isn't a pipe dream! Has anyone tried this, or something similar, with any success? Thanks!
