Rule #1: Cant touch this! 

Okay, yes I know.... it's there! It's bothering you... you want IT gone... What's IT? That dreadful pimple, blackhead, or hair bump! Or have you found yourself resting your chin or cheeks on your hand? My biggest pet peeve is seeing someone TOUCH THIER FACE! Yes, I know it's yours, lol; however, its NOT the best! Let me explain.. *clears throat*.. Between turning door knobs, squeezing gas pumps, punching in pin numbers.. our hands come into contact with so many germs on a daily basis.  Acne is caused by the confluence three factors: excess oil, excess skin shedding and p. acnes bacteria,” said Dr. Shamban. “What touching can do is spread existing p. acnes — the culprit behind red inflammatory acne papules, pustules and cysts — on the surface and beneath the surface of the skin. Beneath the skin is where it does the most damage because it can spread to other pores and manifest in yet another pimple.” We all know that picking at those painful pimples can lead to scarring. Before washing, applying moisturizer or anything to your face, be sure to wash your in lukewarm water for at least 30 seconds with soap to help eliminate any chances for transferring any germs or bacteria to your face. Until next time...xoxo!
