It's the first day of the challenge, and it's time to start cleaning whatever touches your face.
Here we go — it's Day 1 of the Better Skin Challenge. Feeling ready to tackle today's tips?
For today, it's all about making sure to clean everything that touches your face. As Dr. Adam Geyer tells us, "How clean the objects are that touch your face does make a difference in terms of your skin's hygiene and can help to reduce breakouts. The three main culprits: towels, phones, pillowcases." That's why we've got to make sure to get all of those things as clean as can be.
WHAT TO DO TODAY
Cell Phone: Wipe down your cell phone with a standard alcohol wipe. Get a container of alcohol wipes to keep at your desk or on the kitchen counter in your home.
Towels: Wash or swap out your bath towels. If you can, use a separate towel on your face than on the rest of your body.
Pillowcase: Rotate or wash your pillow case to minimize the transfer of oils and product from your hair onto your face during the night.
WHAT TO DO FROM NOW ON
Clean your cell phone with an alcohol wipe every day.
Swap out your towel and pillow case for a clean option at least once a week.
