If that same stubborn pimple keeps reappearing, you may want to wipe down your phone’s mouthpiece with an alcohol pad every day. Public phones, key boards and other hand held devices are used every day and who knows when was the last time they were cleaned. Bacteria, dirt and debris collect and build up on these devices every day. Our main life line, which is our cell phone, can cause acne to the areas it touches. The bacteria build up is transferred to our skin and clogs our pores, which produce pimples or blackheads.
Dr. Wright’s Tip
Each day make sure to cleanse any dirt or debris from any device that may come in contact with your skin. This will prevent sickness and breakout from bacteria transferred to the skin.
