How do patient of BDD behave?

People with BDD may start to avoid social and public situations in case people see them negatively. They may be very self-conscious, using heavy make up or wearing heavy clothes. They check or pick at their skin, check themselves in mirrors excessively, spend a long time styling their hair or applying make up, and comparing themselves to models in magazines or even people in the street.
