Well hello there. I am 20 years old and started picking my face about two years ago. I didn't realize I had this obsession until about 8 months ago, and haven't been able to find any support. My close friends really don't get it and just tell me to stop, and I'm like obviously I would if I could! I have really done a number on my face, its skin tone is so uneven from past scabs that I hate looking in mirrors. I set a resolution not to pick everyday, only to fail within a few hours. I've also been around the block with most products. I quit going to the dermatologist because they were no help and I know that I'm causing my acne/scarring/scabbing, so no prescription is going to fix that. Just today though, I bought Vitamin K cream and Rosewater mist, and I always get my hopes up that it is my miracle product. I just feel stuck and could use some support, advice, motivation, anything. Because I know the people on here get what it feels like to damage yourself and not be able to stop. Or at least it's not easy to stop, I should say. Thank you in advance and I'm so glad I found this place!
