Between e-mailing, texting, social media, and the countless number of available apps, our fingers are almost constantly on our phones. The oils and bacteria that accumulate on your hands throughout the day transfer to your phone’s screen, then wind up on your face when you make a phone call. All that gunk can mean skin issues for you.

Try to make a habit of washing your hands regularly or using hand sanitizer throughout the day. By doing that and by wiping your screen down on a consistent basis, you will greatly up your odds of staying acne-free.
