Cleanliness is essential for maintaining healthy skin.
It is surprising how we can create problems for our skin without ever being aware of what the causes are.
Many people don’t realize how many times throughout the day they touch their face with their hands.
If our hands were totally clean throughout the day this wouldn’t be so much of a problem but this isn’t reasonable.
We touch everything from shopping trolleys to car steering wheels that are never cleaned.
We touch items in the office or in the workplace that don’t get cleaned from one month to the next.
All these germs that we pick up on our hands throughout the day get transferred to our face whenever we touch it and from there they get into the pores of our skin and cause irritations, blackheads and similar skin problems.
Sometimes even the cleaners that we use on our face can cause problems, particularly with people who have sensitive skin where many products are too harsh.
Your skin should always be treated with care and handled delicately as constant demands on it will mean changes that are irreversible as you age.
With the face, where the skin is most sensitive on the majority of people you should take extra care and this might mean making simple changes that can have a dramatic effect over a lifetime.
Simply patting your skin to dry it, rather than rubbing it will a towel can reduce stretching, wrinkles and more when the combined actions of doing this are added up over a number of years.
If you find that you are getting breakouts on one side of your face or another, then you will need to consider what might be causing this.
Do you lean on your hand at work?
Do you answer the telephone from that side all the time?
When you answer these questions you might just find what is causing your problem and it could be as simple as having a dirty phone or dirty hand that you always lean on.
