New You Beauty Tip: Clean your phone to prevent acne breakouts and disease.





Holding the cellphone to your ear is not like napping on the toilet bowl, it’s worse! If you do not regularly clean the screen, your cell or tablets will absorb dirt and grime every time you place them down on that pillow, counter, table, and seat or drop them on the floor. Research indicates that a touch screen can rack up to 400 times the bacteria found on toilet seats and every phone tested contained 2,700 and 4,200 units of fecal matter. Staph, E.coli, fecal matter and salmonella all add up to acne breakouts, pink eye, and even the flu. Isopropyl alcohol is the only product that will remove 100% of dirt and toxins but cleaning wipes from companies like GoSwype and Nice ‘N Clean are over 96% effective and fit nicely in your purse.
