Do You Get Skin Blemishes From Your Cell Phone?

As glamorous and fun as they are, most gadgets are breeding grounds for bacteria. Cell phones are among the worst because they come in contact with our hands, face, purses, desks and many other dirty hot spots. I periodically wipe down my cell phone with a damp cloth and always wash my hands, but I can't help but get a few pesky pimples on my cheek or jawline- the exact spot where I hold my cell phone. Do you get blemishes from your cell phone? Do you have a secret to keep your face glowing and free from zits caused by gadgets? Leave your comments below! Image Source

If you do get them, then you need to back off the phone usage.

I do not, eww! I clean my screen periodically with wipes to guard against things like this. We all know the cleanest place in the house is the toilet seat and one of the dirtiest is the phone, surely? Don't get me started on keyboards.

Not really because I use a headset as much as I can, both at work and on my cell....

I don't think I use my phone enough for that, haha! I also wipe down the screen pretty frequently. (Especially now that I have an iPhone!)

No. I clean all of my phones once a week when I clean the rest of my house. Work, home, cell.

Actually i just got one or two and after reading this i notice its right on the cheek where i hold my cellphone up against, I ussually never get any pimples or blemishes only right before my period but recently yes i have gotten two right in the place where i hold my cellphone , i think the summer heat has an affect to it as well!

I don't talk on my phone often so I don't know. Couldn't you also say the same thing for home phones?

I don't think its from the mobile phone People get them from all different reasons but somehow I don't think its caused by telephone use

I don't get skin blemishes from cellphone. I get a pimple or two 1 week before my period but not from using my cellphone

I've never gotten a blemish from it—I have a little earpiece/speaker right now and am getting a bluetooth headset.

You just need to be conscientious about things like this. I make sure to clean the screen on my cell phone when necessary. If you wash your face in the morning and at night, and also make sure to use power or one of those "remove the oil" sheets of'll be fine. Of course some people have very sensitive skin and so you should think about using a bluetooth or headset instead of pressing the phone against your face.
