Our hands are covered in germs that are spread to these sensitive body parts, and in some instances, they can also gather more germs which are then transmitted to other people. These habits are damaging to your health and the health of those around you.
Look around a coffee shop and you’ll see a good number of people resting their face in their hands. But unless you are washing your face or applying moisturizer, hands off! According to Matthew Lee, microbiologist, ‘Your hands contain oils that can plug your pores and worsen your acne. The germs on your fingers can exacerbate this effect.’ So to help keep your face clean and pimple-free, don’t touch.
