How to beat the bad habit that's causing breakouts
I had done just that before I went in for my facial at Arcona Studio. Allison Marks, the spa director and an esthetician at the studio, let me in on a little secret. Well, it's not so secret, but it's a tip we all choose to ignore time and time again: stop picking your skin. It causes irritation, scars, and usually more acne than what you started with. You think you're extracting what's in the pore, but really, you're just spreading the bacteria. Allison explains the science behind it all, plus gives useful tips for reducing breakouts in general.
