Are You Guilty Of Skin Picking?

POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 2013 AT 1:20 PM  by Dr. Jody Levine

The arrival of an unexpected blackhead or acne marks always seems to hit us right before an important date in our lives. Whether you’re going to your first job interview, starting a new date, about to give a major presentation, or about to get married, these unwanted marks won’t shy away. Even if you don’t have an important event coming up however, acne, blackheads, callus’, and scabs on the face are never welcomed.

Most of us try our hardest to make these unwanted marks vanish. In fact, many are guilty of skin picking. For some however, repeatedly touching, rubbing, scratching, picking, or digging into the skin can cause a medical condition, known as Chronic Skin Picking. NY Dermatologist, Dr. Jody A. Levine offers some insight into this condition in New Beauty magazine’s feature article, “Skin Picking: It’s More Serious Than You Think.” Click on the link below to learn more about this condition and what Dr. Levine has to say.
