Monday Beauty Tip #2: Clean your cell phone

I’ve totally mixed the days and thought it was Monday today, so excuse me for me for being late with my ‘Monday Beauty Tip‘ post.

My beauty tip today is to remember to clean your cell phone often, as holding your cell phone close to your face can be causing bacteria to spread and giving you breakouts on your cheeks.

The simplest way to prevent oil and bacteria from spreading from your cell phone to your skin is to clean it regularly―best case once a day. Simply grab a wet cloth or an antibacterial wipe and give your phone a quick wipe down. Not only will this keep bacteria or germs from sticking to your screen, but it will also prevent the build-up of oil.

    dette må jeg bli bedre på! bruker ikke heavy sminke og foundation daglig, men når jeg gjør det(spesielt nå i julen, hvor jeg liker å være litt pyntet) og samtidig er aktiv på telefonen merker jeg godt at det blir mer møkkete og for et slags belegg av foundationet, rouge++ som smitter over

      Yes I know, if you actually think about all the places you leave your phone it’s quite disgusting!

    Before I got 4 iPhones (yes, I’m a Mac addict…), I had a Motorola RazR (the same as Paris Hilton…). I was used to say that this phone was my “spots” tool… And then, I understood that I had to clean it !!!
