5 Ways your Cellphone is Ruining your Skin

A cellphone is something that we cannot live without. We do a lot of things with our phone from checking mails, making and receiving calls to texting. With an increase in the number of applications, our usage over the phone has also increased.

Okay so we use our phone for hours but what we don’t know is that it is ruining our skin. Here’s how:

  • Keeps you up at night

At any cost do not keep your cellphone next to you. According to research, it has proved that people who slept with it in close proximity ruins your sleep especially because of the radiation and the light emitted from it.

Apart from the radiation, the use of android phones, that encourages texting, playing games etc… makes up stay up longer and ruins our much required sleep.

So basically cell phones are responsible for the puffy eyes and tiredness you feel in the absence of a good night’s rest.

  • Acne and pimples

Cellphones are dirty. They are breeding grounds for bacteria and germs.

We handle them with dirty hands, leave them lying around in dirty places that allow germs to stick onto the phone. When we place this same phone on our cheeks they cause acne and even nasty rashes.

Please do not forget to clean your phone using cotton and rubbing alcohol regularly.

  • Burn the face

Our cell phones heat a lot when we use them, especially as the battery in the phone gets older.

If you have sensitive skin it is best to reduce the usage of your phone as it can cause slight burns on your face along with affecting the melanin production on the skin of your face.

  • Wrinkles

The constant use of your phone will cause you to squint your eyes or bend your neck. Always keep your head straight when looking at your phone to reduce wrinkles.

  • Allergic to phone

You might not know it but the metal that your phone is made of will cause an allergy. The allergy might be mild and you might not even know what’s causing it. Of course the expensive phones are not made of nickel, cobalt and chromium.
