Does anyone have any tips on coping with summer activities while having unhealed skin picking spots/having impulses to pick? I live on the coast, so we spend summer holidays in bathing suits mostly. I have terrible body dysmorphia as it is, and I am so self conscious about people seeing where I’ve been picking.

    I tend to wear super thin, light cover ups! I get them from Amazon and have them in various sizes/shapes and colors. It doesn’t cover my arms 100% of the time but it does most of the time and it makes me think less about the scars and marks :)
