Stress and hormonal acne is the worst whenever I get acne I can't help but pick at it? is it ok to pick or is it bad? and products recommended for my skin?

Hi, Alyssa. The best way to reduce picking - is treating the acne. Use you personal plan on the app to get suggestions for specific products. Keep in mind that dry irritated skin is frequently itching. If you tend to pick on your skin, use an extra gentle cleanser and an oil-free moisturizer in the morning. These will reduce dryness and your need to pick on the skin. Other excellent tools to reduce pimples and picking are birth control pills and blue light acne treatment. 🙂.

If you want to address the hormonal factors of acne, you should also consider certain dietary and lifestyle changes. In addition, you can consult with your primary care physician or OB/GYN about adding an oral medication to your treatment such as Spironolactone, Accutane, or birth control pills.
