I Spent Thousands Battling Hormonal Acne, and a $20 Regimen Cured It
Through a four-year trial-and-error method, I finally found what keeps my acne under control
When I decided not to pick, I stopped picking everything. Even if a pimple was nasty, yellow, and about to pop, I would let it pop on its own when I washed my face. I also put little Band-Aids or DuoDerm over my pimples. Out of sight, out of mind was what I was aiming for. So, I also threw away any small mirrors, extractors, tweezers and anything else that could potentially trip me up.. When washing my face or using the restroom, I'd even take off my glasses so I wouldn't see anything to pick. Besides not over-analyzing my skin, I also took a hands-free approach. My hands were no longer allowed to even graze my face.
You won't really see the results of not picking overnight, so it does take willpower and patience. But with the basic skin care routine and my hands-off policy I adopted, I noticed that my skin looked a little better -- and that's the best motivation I could ask for.
