Things that can affect your skin that you may not be aware of

 When many of us think about skin care we think about moisturizers, cleansing, facials and peels but we usually don’t stop to consider the other factors that play a role in what our skin looks like.

It is important that you remember to disinfect all the things that come into contact with your skin on a daily basis. By doing this you can help stop skin irritation, breakouts and unwanted blemishes and improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Some of the things that come in contact with your face are loaded with bacteria and germs that can make their way into your pores and cause all sorts of issues.

Remember to:
*Disinfect your cell phone!
Many of us hold our phones to our faces without realizing that they may be crawling with bacteria. If you notice that you are breaking out on one side of your face and in a certain area more than another clean your phone.

*Always wash and sanitize your hands.
Many of us don’t realize how often we touch our faces throughout the day. 

*Clean your makeup brushes regularly
If you aren’t washing and disinfecting your makeup brushes on a regular basis chances are germs are multiplying. What I do is mix some rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle with some water and sprtiz my brushes between uses. I also wash them with warm water and shampoo every few weeks.

*Change your pillowcase often
Washing your sheets on a regular basis and changing your pillowcase is also important for the health of your skin. If you sleep on a pillowcase that hasn’t been changed in a while it can cause you to break out and have skin irritation.

*Do not use the same towel you use for your body on your face and always change your face towel regularly.

*Make sure to wash and disinfect any facial cleansing brushes you have such as the Clarisonic or similar devices.

*If you use any hair removal devices on your face make sure you disinfect and clean them regularly.


  1. This was a good reminder to disinfect my cell phone. That is the only thing I'm bad about on your list and that's what I use the most!

  2. I know sometimes it is so hard to remember to clean the phone! They sell devices that you put your cell in overnight and it disinfects it for you, I was thinking of getting one.

  3. Thanks for the reminder to wash my brushes more! I'm always bad about the powder ones because they always just seem clean, but that's of course a lie. Sigh... brush cleaning day is tomorrow!

  4. Your post seems to be very helpful. Washing your pillow regularly can prevent the bad effects on your skin. It is a good idea to launder them weekly to remove dirt and dust.

    1. Thank you, yes it is, I wash my sheets all the time! Anything to help my skin look great :)
