Your phone is probably the reason for your pimples

While trying to get rid of our acne, you must have considered cutting back on everything from sugar to fatty foods. What you probably haven’t tried is spending less time talking on your phone.

It might sound odd but yapping away at your phone for hours on end, might actually be the reason you are breaking out, especially when you keep breaking out at the side of your face.


If you think about it, the surface of your phone gathers a ton of dirt that you keep transferring to your face, each time you pick a call. The fact that you can’t see the dirt doesn’t mean it’s not there. So imagine you are on the phone for an hour, the dirt on your phone plus the heat caused from keeping it there for so long plus the oil your skin is producing, is equal to the source of your acne.


If you are trying to get rid of phone acne, for starters you should try keeping the surface of your phone clean. If you are not much of a texter, and you can’t seem to get rid of the pimples on the side of your face, you might also want to work on that and give the side of your face a break. Try it for a couple of weeks, and you might finally get rid of your acne. If you absolutely can’t do without calling, use earphones instead of placing the phone directly on your face.
