5 Ways To Stop The Bad Habit Of Picking Your Pimples
If you have been picking at your pimples, it will only get worse, so you should stop immediately. Tried stopping but find it difficult? Why not keep reading to find out how to stop.
These 4 tips will help you
1. Reduce how often you look into a mirror
If you spend a lot of time in front of mirrors, try to decrease your mirror time. Time yourself in front of the mirrors–if you know you only have 5 or 10 minutes, you won’t be able to waste on that blemish.
2. Cover pimples with tape
If you’re tempted to pick at trouble spots on your face, conceal them with bits of medical tape. Each time you attempt to pick you will be reminded that this behavior is off-limits.
3. Apply makeup to facial skin to cover marks.
Wearing makeup over your facial skin serves a dual purpose: it covers imperfections so that you are less likely to obsess over them and it acts as a barrier to prevent picking. If you spend extra time in the morning applying makeup, you won’t want to smudge it by picking at your face.
4. Get a manicure so your nails can’t do damage.
Visit your local nail salon and get your natural nails cut down really short to prevent you from picking. You might also choose to have a set of acrylic nails installed.
5. Try delaying your picking when you feel the urge.
The next time you get the urge to pick your face, tell yourself you must wait 10 minutes. Set a timer on your phone. When the time elapses, see if the urge is still there
