A Note from our Founder:

"Remember you are so much more than your skin, whether clear or spotted, smooth or potted, it does not define you. Dermatillomania is a mental illness that compels you to fix perceived imperfections on your skin, often from your fingers automatically scanning your skin, and you do not want to be doing this, even though it provides a type of relief. This is not your fault or by choice, and not something you “can just stop”. Skin picking management takes awareness, encouragement, self care, patience, mindfulness, self love, and acceptance." -Lauren McKeaney, #PickingMe CEO
