Using a smartphone or mobile phone isn’t that smart for your skin. Heck, we have no way around using this tiny powerful communication device. In more ways than one, mobile phones have made us all look a bit more washed up and worn out.
The good news is that knowledge is power. Knowing everything there is about a smartphone and how it can really destroy your skin is very important. That’s why I’m going to tell you everything I know about them and the impact that using one can have on your looks.
Mobile Phone Tips To Keep Your Skin Perfect
For some people, the impact may already be too much. The damage may be done and there’s nothing that can be done. For others, a little knowledge and prevention may save your skin.
Overuse of cell phone devices is destroying our skin, vision, joints and overall health. Snapchat yourself to ugly town if that’s what you prefer to do. I personally suggest not taking that route. According to an article published in DailyMail.co.uk, people check their phones over 80 times a day (on average). I don’t know about you but that number is astonishingly high in my opinion! The only way to get you to put your smartphone down and stop checking it so much is to tell you everything it’s doing to your skin.
For starters, over using a mobile phone can cause your eyes to look extremely tired. All that constant squinting from checking messages and reading small font takes a toll on your eyes. Prepare yourself for squint lines, crows feet, and tired looking eyes. The best thing to do is to take a break from your phone. Instead of taking a break from your work computer and picking up your phone. Put them both down and go take a quick walk. This will give your eyes time to rest and replenish themselves with fluid. It’s also important that you stay as hydrated as possible if you want to prevent dry eyes and further squinting.
Want to reduce your chances of acquiring really bad acne? Stop talking on the phone for such a long period of time. Mobile phones are disgusting and there’s a chance that your phone is covered in bacteria. All that bacteria being rubbed all over your face is not good at all. Not only that, when you have your phone touching your skin for a long period of time, you will start to sweat. That sweat then begins to clog your pores and trap oil even more!
Here’s a thought, why don’t you begin to wipe your mobile phone daily with antibacterial wipes. That should help remove some of the disgusting bacteria living on your smartphone. I’d also like to suggest that you wear headphones if you plan on spending a significant amount of time talking on the phone. This will help keep your face free from all that bacteria. As an added bonus, don’t be afraid to work in some products that contain salicylic acid into your daily routine.
Another concern that habitual mobile phone users should be worried about is something referred to as tech neck. Looking down at your phone can cause horizontal lines to form in your neck and decollete area. These are the areas that are most prone to aging and likely are most commonly visible. The skin in the area is thinner and more susceptible to damage. Simply take an extended break from any tech if you want to reduce tech neck from forming.
While you may not think any of this is a big deal, it is. In fact, it’s going to be a much bigger deal in the future if you do nothing about it. Stay younger looking by putting your smartphone away at night. Disconnect and relax a bit, you deserve it!
