How to stop picking at your skin

  • by

Picking one’s skin – around the nails; pimples; scabs; ingrowing hairs – is a condition similar to OCD. Most people who pick aren’t so extreme – it’s when they are particularly stressed out, sleep-deprived, or their skin is breaking out & it hasn’t in a while. NB: Pimples being squeezed can infect others & cause even more; scabs being picked off can scar & leave marks.
