How Your Smart Phone Is Messing With Your Complexion
Smart phones can cause acne in the “phone zone” (our chin, cheeks and temples). So if you use your smartphone often, it’s not helping the cause. But not many of us can live without the little gadget! How can we treat the problem without having to break our inevitable routine?
The Habit: Talking on our smart phones.
The Damage: Smart phones can cause acne in the “phone zone” (our chin, cheeks and temples). Let’s explore why this is. We constantly touch our smartphone screens to text, dial, check social media, browse, and our hands are filled with excess oils and bacteria. Phone screens are not porous like our skin, so the oils can be easily transferred and get trapped in our pores.
When excess oils mix with dead cells, it forms a plug in the pore where acne-causing bacteria breeds. The body reacts to these toxins with inflammation and swelling and that’s the ugly pimple you always seem to see flare up at the wrong time. How inconvenient!
The good news is, you’ve got about two weeks from the time the pore gets clogged until the pimple comes to surface. So you’ve got time to nip it in the bud so-to-speak.
What Dermatologists Recommend: Try a tea tree oil cream like Keeva Organics Tea Tree Oil Acne Cream. Tea tree oil has been clinically proven to kill acne-causing bacteria naturally. Keeva is recommended above all other products containing tea tree oil because Keeva uses the highest quality tea tree oil available. This key ingredient acts as a natural acne killer (in this case in the pore– the site of the acne bacteria). Not only does this make the acne cream more effective, it also prevents dryness because it keeps doesn’t use harsh chemicals like other big name acne brands.
The Results: For me, the results were noteworthy. My zits disappeared rapidly! I notice that my pores look smaller, and my skin tone is better all around. I haven’t gotten many zits since I started using Keeva’s Tea Tree Oil Acne Cream (not to jinx it), and I still use my smartphone – constantly.
