Anti-picking strategies

I saw a make-over show on TV where they make women over to look 10 years younger. This woman had adult acne and was obsessive about picking at it. They sent her to a psychotherapist who suggested that she take up knitting and carry around some putty with her to squeeze when she felt the need to pick. (They make rubbery hand squeezing devices, but I don’t know where to buy one.) She also suggested Cognitive Behavioral Therapy if necessary. They gave her a chemical peel and did some laser work on her to remove hair. She really did look good after make-up and haircut, clothes, etc.
