Hi,
You are not the only one.Many have this habit inspite of knowing the facts.You have to work out for reversal of habit.
First take track of how many times per day you did that.
If you decrease ur frequency by just one time per day,think of number of breakouts u will be avoiding per week ! per month!
You should take proper treatment of pimples under Doctor.
wish you good health.
