Can Your Cellphone Cause Acne?
Too much exposure to mobile phone heat, not good for the skin.
People use mobile phones every day in more ways than one, unlike before when it was only meant for calls. Instant messaging came and it didn’t take too long for it to have games and other entertainment features such as a music player and a radio. Today, people use it to get information from the internet, while numerous apps have made it possible to do things with just the touch of their fingertips. But among the numerous features a mobile phone has, the camera is probably the most used of them all. From taking pictures and preserving memories to taking selfies and show off.
While mobile phones have given people the power to do things with just a swipe or touch of their fingertips, the constant use of mobile phones, especially those who are relentlessly taking selfies may cause some harmful effects on the skin. The heat coming from mobile phones is known to promote the number of antigens that could cause allergies, especially to those who already a history in having several allergic reactions. Combining this heat to the use of nickel and cobalt in the phone trimmings could also make the skin red and itchy. And with these skin irritation brought by having too much heat exposure from mobile phones, blemishes and acne could breakout on the skin.
Experts also have revealed gruesome details about the collection of dirt, bacteria, and other nastiness that builds up in cellular phone. When mobile phones get in contact to the skin to make a call, the skin is not only in direct contact with the bacteria, but it also starts to perspire and even trap oil in the pores. Worst yet, the pressure of the phone on the skin creates blemishes.
Luckily, America’s #1 acne treatment system, Proactiv Solution has a 3-Step System that is dermatologist-developed and is designed to help clear existing acne and prevent future outbreaks, while gently taking care of the skin. This will also make the skin always ready for a selfie without having to use any filters before posting it online.
Proactiv’s 3-Step System starts with the application of the Renewing Cleanser, which contains Benzoyl Peroxide to help kill acne-causing bacteria. The ultra-fine, micro-crystal BPO penetrates pores fast while being gentle on the skin and tiny exfoliating beads help to unclog the pores of impurities, such as excess sebum, keratin and dead skin cells. Next is the Proactiv Revitalizing Toner which refines and purifies pores through gentle exfoliation. It contains soothing botanicals to gently remove excess oil for refreshed, clear skin.
And finally, the Repairing Lotion, is a treatment that helps to heal breakouts and prevent new ones from forming. Each Proactiv kit comes with a free Refining Mask that helps keep skin clear and acne-free. Formulated with sulfur, a proven acne-fighting ingredient, reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin. The Refining Mask unclogs pores, pampers inflamed skin, and softens the skin’s texture.
Taking a break from these long heat exposure from mobile phones will definitely improve skin health— trimming down hours of phone calls to a minimum, lessen the amount of time playing games on the phone, and probably just take a few selfies instead of filling the phone’s memory with a lot of it. By using Proactiv to have that blemish free skin, the perfect selfie could just be a click away.
