How your cell phone is making your skin break out

Did you know that cell phones often carry more bacteria than toilets? Yes, that is truly disgusting, but it’s important to be cognizant of this fact when it comes to your skin. Every day one or both of your cheeks are exposed to a cesspool of bacteria. These bacteria can shift from your cell phone to your skin which can cause pimples, and blackheads.

How to treat your cell phone

The first step in preventing cell-phone related skin issues is to make sure that you clean your cell phone at least once a week with a cleaning agent or rubbing alcohol. This will ensure that bacteria isn’t being transferred from your cell phone onto your skin, meaning it won’t be able to interfere with your skin’s health.

Next you should reassess how you clean your skin. Are you forgetful about removing your make up after a day filled with cell phone activity? Leaving makeup on overnight may be harmful for your skin. Instead of sleeping with makeup on, use a cleansing wipe to quickly and efficiently remove makeup. We recommend keeping a pack of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Towelettes on your bedstand for those moments when you just don’t want to get up and wash your face before bed.

Since your cell phone is filled with bacteria it’s important to clean it at least once a week so your skin isn’t in constant contact with a pool of germs. This tip, mixed with an effective skin care routine should help you bypass blemishes.
