#9. Don’t touch your face
During the day you are probably using your computer, you are touching you phone, open doors, shake hands… Just your keyboard is the main source of bacteria (far more bacteria lives on your keyboard than on the toilette seat) as well on your phone. Don’t touch you face. Whenever you forget and rest your chin on your palm, just remove your hand from your face and sit straight. It would improve your acne problem for at least 40%.
