I started lip and face picking at 15 yrs old, I’m 30 now. I also started to pull my eye lashes and eyebrows. Stress and anxiety are my triggers also when I’m cold or uncomfortable. I use Aquaphor as well and Pot O miracle emollient (thick chapstick). I wear lip gloss/stick and stay hydrated too which helps me not to pick. I eat spicy and citrus foods because I know it will burn if I have open scars on my lips so it makes me more mindful of my picking habits. I’ve tried to stop for yrs, this yr I stopped for an entire mo. But sadly gave in to the relaxing feeling it gives me, initial comfort then regret when I look in the mirror to see the sores/bleeding. Thanks for sharing. Anyways, keep fighting the good fight!
