"As pickers ourselves, we are passionate about helping fellow pickers by creating healthy, natural, healing solutions.
A question frequently received since the launch of PickFix™ is “how do I best prep my picked/irritated skin before applying”.
We hear horror stories of people using alcohol and other harsh solutions we would not recommend."
Carter + Jane knew they had to create an effective solution to use immediately after picking, right before applying PickFix™… Introducing PostPick™!
PostPick™ is unlike anything else on the market today. It is created specifically for skin pickers, as a natural alternative to mainstream options like rubbing alcohol. Ingredients like that can cause terrible irritation and strip away the skin's natural microbiome, which is critical to healing.
Here are the steps Sara Jane, co-founder of Carter + Jane, recommends after picking:
Step 1: Make sure your hands are clean and repeatedly splash the picked area with water.
Step 2: Use a clean cloth (damp or dry) and apply pressure until the bleeding is under control.
Step 3: Spray PostPick™ on the area and allow to dry.
Step 4: Apply PickFix™. Depending on the severity you may need to cover with a bandage.
Step 5: Though we highly recommend against it, if you must use cover-up immediately after, we recommend finding a mineral-based powder concealer with the cleanest ingredients possible. (Note from Susie - we love our Mineral Air Airmistwith Four-in-One Foundation. It's no-touch, mineral-based, and helps to heal your skin!)
PostPick™ and PickFix™ will not cure skin picking; they are simply tools to help safely improve your skin after.
