You probably know that your hands pick up a lot of bacteria throughout the day, so it should be no surprise that your cell phone does too. After all, you're touching it all day while talking, texting and exploring those exciting apps. However, you could be doing your skin a disservice by pressing it against your face when it's not clean.
The dirt, oil and bacteria that collects on your phone can do a number on your skin, clogging pores and causing blemishes and blackheads. According to The Beauty Department, many dermatologists can tell which side their patients hold the phone on just from looking at the state of their skin!
Make sure to use a cotton ball with a bit of rubbing alcohol to disinfect your phone frequently, then repair the damage on your face with a cleanser like Bioelements – Decongestant Cleanser. It'll get rid of all the gunk so you can use an acne treatment like Jane Iredale – Disappear to nix that mess for good.
