Dirtier Thank You Think

August 13th, 2015

What is the one accessory the majority of people cannot live without? Their cell phone, of course! But did you know that your most prized possession harbors bacteria that can cause acne.

If you think about the amount of people and things we touch on a daily basis, it is quite easy to understand how your cell phone can attract the amount of bacteria it does. In essence whatever our hands touch our phones touch as well.

Your face comes into direct contact with bacteria when you press your cheek against it to answer or make a phone call. The sweat, oil, and bacteria that builds up on your phone screen all contribute to the creation of acne on your face, predominantly in your cheek area.

Making sure to clean both your hands and phone daily is extremely important in helping prevent acne. But if you find that the damage has already been done, seeking help from a dermatologist may be the best thing for you.

There are many treatments available through Advanced Dermatology P.C. that can help fight acne. Theraclear (formerly known as Acleara) treats acne using a light and vacuum treatment to unclog pores and kill acne causing bacteria. There are also products available to help treat acne, including moisturizers and washes.

Stop by any of our locations to get information on the products and treatments we have available.
