Keep your hands off your face
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.” And if you develop pimples, be sure to never pop them if they crop up on this part of your face –– doing so can put your health at risk.
Keep your hands off your eyes
Your eyes are extremely sensitive: Not only can touching them introduce germs, but you also run the risk of accidentally inserting micro-particles of dirt, which can cause irritation and even scratches to your corneas. If you must touch your eyes, wash your hands thoroughly before doing so. Resist the urge to rub your eyes as this can also cause more wrinkles and dark circles over time. If your eyes are itchy, try re-wetting drops to help keep irritation at bay.
