Clean your phone screen
There was a study conducted recently by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine where they took 780 swab samples off of iPhone surfaces & discovered that 82 percent of phones had some type of bacteria on them. This is especially important for those of you who have to be on the phone a lot for work or if you have friends & family that live far away (I spend at least an hour each week talking to my parents). If you’re noticing breakouts along your jawline, this could very well be the culprit. The ideal option is to use ear buds instead, but you should also make it a point to clean your phone screen every week with santizing spray & a microfiber cloth just to be sure that all traces of oil & bacteria are gone for good.
If your morning routine involves showering & styling your hair before applying makeup, you don’t want to skip this important middle step. There are so many ingredients in hair products like mousse or root lifters that can leave a residue on your hands, which you don’t want to have transferred to your face. Because my skin is fairly sensitive, my dermatologist recommended that I wash my hands with soap after styling my hair & before I put on my makeup primer to help avoid unwanted irritation from chemicals in my hair products.
