We know it's hard to believe, but a recent study shows that using your phone is making you break out. Yep, there's a reason why you've been getting zits on the side of the face where you tend to use your phone.
Here's the thing: The dirt and oil on your phone's screen goes to your skin every time you use it. So those whiteheads and blackheads that just seem to magically multiply overnight—on your cheek, temple, and chin—might be because you've been going on intense chika sessions with your best girlfriend every night.
Don't worry, the solution is pretty simple. Clean your smartphone's screen daily using anti-bacterial wipes, and make sure you stick to beauty products that contain salicylic acid (we're kind of obsessed with Burt's Bees Acne Solutions Purifying Gel Cleanser, P850, available at Beauty Bar), which will help by exfoliating your skin and reducing your zit's inflammation.
