All that bacteria transfers onto your face when you’re talking to someone on the phone. What you want to do is every night wipe down your phone with an anti-bacterial wipe. This applies to your shades glasses and anything else that touches your face on a regular basis.
3. Chance your pillowcase

4. Do yoga
Yoga is great for multiple reasons but for this scenario. Yoga is great for getting your heart pumping increasing your blood flow. All the blood rushing to your face is great for removing toxins. Plus yoga is great for reducing cortisol level which is a stress hormone The higher your stress the higher your oil production on your face. This causes your face to have a breakout. Lower stress the less your chances for an acne breakout.
5. Avoid over-washing your face
You need to be washing your face twice a day once at night once during the day no more no less. If you wash your face more often thinking it’ll make your face cleaner it’ll actually have the opposite effect. The more you wash your face more your body produces oil. That oil production yea its not the best for your face. Its actually the cause of acne and zits.
