Healthy skin tip #9: Clean your cell phone (and your glasses)

Remember our "obvious-but-surprising" tip about using a clean pillowcase?

How many times each day do you use your phone? Well, a dirty phone leaves behind dirt (and oil, and germs) on your skin. So clean your phone, and you'll have a positive effect on your skin as well!
