Breaking the Breakout Cycle
Currently the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of Mental Disorders, the written authority on psychiatric disorders, doesn’t have a specific “name” for the condition yet. But that does not mean there are not thousands of people who suffer from skin picking.
17 million Americans over the age of 18 suffer from acne. According to recent studies roughly 4% of college students and 2% of patients who go to dermatologists are suffering from this condition and women outnumber the men 8 to 1. And drugstore shelves are filled with products specifically geared towards adult woman who breakout.
