Have you ever considered that your acne is causing you distress... So you stress about it, causing more acne? Hella counter productive, no?
People with Acne Anxiety might "do too much — picking and using too many products. As their skin reacts, they start to do more and more in a viscous cycle."
Enter a Psycho-dermatologists..
It's exactly how it sounds.... Part psychologist part dermatologist... One whole hero.
Most psycho-dermatologists utilize a three-pronged approach composed of therapy and self-care education, medication, and dermatology.
They treat the skin, treat the anxiety, and then treat the underlying cause/stressors.
Sounds like a trip to my childhood beauty parlor... Yes I said BEAUTY PARLOR.
If you're not as far as being anxious with your acne, but you are a bit of a picker, may I suggest patches?
While you're in the house pop on a Zit Sticker (sounds classy right?) To keep your picky little hands, (that carry bacteria and germs btw) away from the area. You get a bonus if you find one that has medication that penetrates the surface of your skin and alleviates the symptoms.
