Quarantine Quips: Anxiety & Skin Picking

Check out what our Skin Picking community is saying about this, as well as some tips from us on ways to combat this struggle!

#PickingMe's Tips:
-Look up and try out different breathing exercises
-Download a mindfulness or calming app to use as a resource during anxious moments
-Get up and move your body to release some pent up energy
