Does bacteria on your telephone display have an effect on you?
Dr Preema Vig says, ‘Until you recurrently wipe your telephone with an antibacterial wipe, studies have found that mobile phones are contaminated with bacteria – greater than a rest room. These may be the cause of pores and skin breakouts and blemishes!’
‘They can be coated with a mixture of sweat, make-up, substances out of your palms and germs from where you’ve gotten placed your telephone and these switch to your pores and skin each time you answer a call.’
‘Ensure your daily regime includes a good topical antioxidant such as a vitamin C serum and a sunscreen. Make-up also helps to create a barrier between our skin and the blue light/ infrared emitted by devices that form a significant part of our daily life from phones, iPads, laptops and screens.’
