You want to STOP compulsive skin picking, hair pulling, or chewing.
I wanted to stop, but I didn't realize I lacked the information to do it. I didn't realize there was a way to do it.
Finally in 2019, I radically reduced my picking thanks to steps I created for myself. I later learned these steps correlate with proven body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) treatments.
Despite the complicated names for these disorders (trichotillomania, excoriation, dermatillomania, onychophagy), the ebook is not vague, medical, or academic. It's a reader-friendly guide that shares concrete steps so you can feel in control rather than desperate, confident rather than ashamed—so your hair, skin, or nails can be more like you want them to be.
What the BFRB Guide Is
While tips and strategies are part of healing, and the BFRB Guide shares plenty, it goes beyond that. It covers a whole process to radically reduce or even stop your picking, pulling, or biting.
"I've been reading the BFRB Guide little by little every day and it's amazing."
"Picking" is said most often, but if you pull or chew, this ebook is for you too.
This guide will be particularly helpful if…
- You have dermatillomania.
- You target blemishes (zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, milia), ingrowns, and the like.
- You’re unsure why you do it and have tried covering mirrors, using gloves, or marking a calendar, among many other things.
This guide will also help you if...
- You have trichotillomania, onychophagia, dermatophagia, or another BFRB.
- You target hairs (head, lashes, brows, beard); your nails, fingers, cheeks, feet, scalp; or something else.
- You have an idea why you pick, pull, or chew (and I don’t mean just “to get that thing off me!”) but haven't been able to heal to a meaningful extent.
“Wow, I know a book can only do so much, but yours exceeded my expectations. A lot! I came away with: confidence that I can be in control of my BFRB health
(and other areas of my health), more acceptance of myself, tools and guidance to help me take better care of myself, [and] the desire and motivation to experience the 3 items above."
The ebook is available now!
The print book is coming soon.
"Best bfrb guide I've come across. You will heal your bfrb. Please do read this book if you want to control your actions related to trichotillomania."
"Lauren, you're amazing. Thanks for providing such a great guide to people like us. <3"
"Fantastic book with a holistic and logical approach to help control and overcome body focused repetitive behaviours. For me, dermatillomania has hindered my full potential and for the longest time I tried to face it with just sheer willpower alone, not really knowing where to start apart from thinking 'Just don't pick!'.
It's the same as telling a smoker to stop smoking! This book will help you to curb your urges and triggers and feel more in control, as long as you follow all the advice and trust yourself and the process. I'm looking forward to healthier skin and a happier me."
