There are a lot of attributes that all women seem to share – our great instincts, our hospitable nature, and our erratic emotions (sorry, it’s true!) You know what else most of us share? Our insane need to ruin our face even more when our face is plagued by a pimple.
Unfortunately I’m one of those ladies who can’t help myself. I know better! I tell myself I’m not going to do it because it will do absolutely no good. Sadly, when it comes to this, my willpower is pretty slim. Actually, it’s pretty non-existent sadly.
Before you scab up your face by picking, why don’t you try…
- The toothpaste trick! Dab some (white) toothpaste on your problem area. When it hardens up, remove it.
- Break a liquid Tylenol/Advil pill up. Put the liquid over your problem area and let it sit for fifteen minutes.
I’ve learned a few of tricks when you just can’t help yourself! Not that I condone picking your face apart, but in the event that it happens…
- Dab some peroxide on the recently popped pimple.
Did I mention that I’m getting my engagement photos done tomorrow? Well, my face has a couple little issue areas because I couldn’t help myself. I told myself I wouldn’t…obviously I don’t listen to myself very well.
And this is one reason I’m extremely thankful for makeup! (And photoshop!)
