N-DUBZ star TULISA CONTOSTAVLOS underwent a course of hypnotherapy to stop her squeezing spots on her face.
The singer suffered severe breakouts as a teenager and became obsessed with picking her pimples.
She eventually decided a drastic course of therapy was needed to change her behaviour – and she’s pleased her bad habit didn’t leave her with acne scars.
Contostavlos tells Britain’s X Magazine, “I stopped doing it about six months ago. From the age of about 14, I used to spend hours in front of the mirror squeezing literally anything I could find. I could have the tiniest little blackhead and I’d attack it until it was bright red and my skin was all broken and damaged. I’m so lucky I don’t have loads of scars.
“I had hypnotherapy. I was really sceptical about it working but it totally did. Now I’ll only squeeze a spot if I really need to and then I’ll put Savlon on afterwards to heal it. It’s made such a dramatic difference to me. It’s amazing.”
