I Tried Not Touching My Face For 2 Weeks


– [Stacey] Do you think
I can not touch my face for two weeks? – You will touch your face in 15 minutes. (upbeat music) (kisses) – So, Ivan. – Yes. – I am doing this video where I’m not trying to touch
my face for two weeks. – Okay. – But I wanted to know, like… – Ahh! Don’t do that! No, your… – That’s even worse. – Your fingers are dirty. (dramatic music) Why do you touch your face so much that you have to do this video? (laughs) – Well I touch my face all
the time because I have, like, you can see, I have like
little scabs and stuff here. – Oh, so you pick your, like. – I, like, pick at my acne. – Oh. (upbeat music) – Woo, that’s a long time. – Yeah, it is. Do you think I can do it? – I don’t know. (laughs) (upbeat music) – How’s way? – I don’t think you’re gonna be able to do that because you just
do it without thinking. – How many times a day do
you see me touching my face? – A lot. Yeah, whatever scabs you have, if you have a pimple and it scabs up, you’re always picking at it. – Mmm. Like, when do I usually touch my face? – Whenever you’re nervous. (upbeat music) – It’s the morning of the challenge. And it hasn’t started,
and I’ve already failed because I’ve already touched my face. Right here, this red one. I squeezed it. It is now an hour into this challenge, and I’ve already slightly failed because I itched my
nose, and it was itchy. I had no choice. And I’m touching my face again. Great. Yeah, I have like very chapped lips. And I tend to pick at
that dead skin as well. Which is also another habit I wanna break. Tomorrow I’m gonna have a meeting, and it’s gonna be a long meeting, so we’ll see if my boredom
will get the best of me. Or if I can stay engaged
and actually pay attention. So, I’m just getting to work. I have no makeup on. It’s gonna be an interesting day. It’s gonna be good, and it’s gonna be bad. (upbeat music) I just got out of my long-ass meeting. It was all day, and I
realized that when I’m bored, I touch my face more. So I had to find new ways
of entertaining my boredom. And what happened was, I
started picking at my thumb. And, you can see, it’s like kind of bloody and bleeding and everything. I’m trying to think of a new strategy so when I rest my hand on my face, I’m not having full palm on my face. Maybe fist? So, I just caught myself
picking at my lip. It’s all dry, but I
really just wanna rip off all that dry skin. So maybe I do have a
picking, peeling fetish? When I was little and insecure and had a lot of acne issues on my skin, and so I would just keep picking at it because I was nervous or
anxious about something. Or just generally bored and just wanted to get all these flaws off my face. And as I grew up, it just translated to my adult life. Look at my struggle. I’m gonna do this strategy here. Watch this. And it’s gone. This is around the time when I wake up and I’m trying to get all
my eye poops out of my eyes. And then I look into the mirror, and I kind of like inspect my face. But I’m not gonna do that today. So after doing all of my foundation, and then halfway doing my eyeliner, as you can see. Can you see it? I realized I was touching
my face as I was doing it. So I’m gonna try and do my eyeliner without touching my face. (electronic music) It’s okay. It’s okay. (upbeat music) I was just unconsciously catching myself scratching this little devil pimple here. And it’s definitely a
little swelled up now. And a little bit angry at me. The whole self-control and willpower has really grown in me
this last week and a half. For me to not touch my face is huge. It’s monumental. You can ask any of my family members. You can ask any of my friends. Man, that is tough for me. I’m kind of getting tired of not being able to touch my face for things that I need
to touch my face for. And that was Yasmine. It is Pi Day today,
and the lunch is pizza. So, I put my hair up so I will eliminate the factor of hair in my face and touching my face
with greasy pizza hands. – See, I have coverage because
I do get zits and stuff sometimes, but it’s
hidden under the beard. – [Stacey] Ooo. – So as long as I don’t
go up here, I’m okay. – So, here is an updated tally of all the days so far and how much I’ve touched my face. – We are Stacey’s desk mates, and we have been tasked with trying to get her to touch her face. Or at least just annoy
her, which is something we’re used to doing on a daily basis. (laughs) (gasp) Oh god, what is happening? (upbeat music) – Oh no. (group laughs) – This is sabotage. – It is sabotage. – Oh no, this is so… – Stacey, does your face itch? – It itches so much. Oh! Oh, I wanna… (group laughs) – [Mia] Stacey can’t,
no, Stacey, that counts. You can’t roll your face on your desk. (Stacey laughs) – I was just sabotaged by my desk mates. – Don’t think that I’m gonna stop tickling your face after
you’re done with this video. – No! (upbeat music) – I’m walkin’ my dog right now. So I didn’t vlog much today because I didn’t touch my face that much. Now we’re watching “Coco”. (kisses) (ding) – [Ron] No more, no more, no more. (Ron laughs) (Stacey sniffs) – It is the last day of this challenge. – How do you feel?
– I think… – How do you feel? – I feel good. I feel like… – Have you noticed any difference? – I’ve noticed that I haven’t broken out. – Nice. – In a long time. And whenever I touch my
face now, it feels weird to touch my face because I
haven’t touched it in so long. – So, like, you created like
a habit of not touching it. – Of not, yeah.
– So that’s good. – I, essentially, broke my bad habit. It’s the end of the two weeks
of not touching my face. And, man, was it hard. I didn’t realize how many times I subconsciously touched my face. Not touching my face
for two weeks definitely made a huge difference. I noticed that my skin was glowier. I don’t know if that’s a word. I forgot what my face felt like. And then when I touched it, it was so much softer than before. I didn’t have any new
pimples or blackheads emerge because I wasn’t touching my face. I don’t want to have to
deal with pimples anymore. So, this is gonna be my attempt of just having clear skin for the rest of my life. (upbeat music)
