    Try some handcream. It might help.

    Try rubbing your plucking fingers on your forehead - works for me!
  4. nice- a fellow host to acne. yep- nothing better than face oil on your fingertips. seriously- i do it every time. sometimes im tapped out and i have to sneak a wipe of a stranger's forehead.

    p.s. that move is also a great ice breaker
