If your face has been suddenly sprouting pimples left, right and centre for no apparent reason (such as a change in your skincare regime or excessive stress), the following may be the cause:
1. YOUR MOBILE PHONE
Whenever your phone is pressed against your ear and cheek, a transfer of bacteria occurs. Talking on the phone for long periods can also lead to clogged pores and oil build-up. To avoid this, be sure to clean your phone regularly.
2. YOUR PILLOW
It’s important to change your pillowcase once a week, especially if you have sensitive skin, as pillowcases tend to harbour dust, sweat and oil – all of which come in contact with your skin when you lie on it for hours at a time.
3. YOUR HAIR
Whether it’s the styling products you use or your sweeping bangs, keeping your hair off your face helps keep those breakouts at bay. This is so the grease from your conditioner or serum doesn’t transfer onto your forehead or cheeks.
