3 ways bacteria gets on your face!

that bacteria sneaks up on you!

1. Your PILLOW

You are smooshing your face in to this little thing all night.
Of course, your face SHOULD be clean by the time it hits the pillow. I confess a few weeks ago I was feeling like my skin was lookin’ pretty clear, and you know what I did? I got cocky. When I was tired and lazy at night I told myself I was above the rules. I didn’t even have the decency to use a wipe to take my makeup off! Now I am paying the ultimate price. Don’t let that happen to you, but even if you do clean your face, you should also clean your pillow once a week.

2. Your PHONE

If I was bacteria, and I wanted to someday become a zit, I would totally hang out on phone screens. It’s like Hollywood for up and coming blackheads. Which is why I carry disinfectant wipes in my purse and whenever I remember to, I swipe it across my phone.

3. Your HANDS

This may not be the first time you’ve been told to wash your hands so I won’t belabor it. Just add great skin to the list of reasons to wash them often.  And keep them off your face as often as possible.
