How To Tell If Your Phone Is Giving You Acne

Unless you’re cursed with seriously bad acne, you probably just get acne in certain places on occasion. Personally, I hardly ever get pimples. But when I do, they’re always on my damn chin.

If you consistently get them in the same place, there’s almost guaranteed to be a reason for that. It could be a hormonal imbalance, or your diet, but it could also be your phone.

Another cause for cheek pimples? Not washing your makeup brushes enough — something we’re all guilty of.

This is a bummer, because both makeup brushes and phones are two things you’re not giving up, but the good news is all you have to do is clean them both properly and frequently.
