It’s one thing if your skin is breaking out when you’re PMS-ing, or when you’re stressed. Yes, it’s annoying, but at least it makes sense. But it’s maddening when your face is dotted with zits for no apparent reason. Why, why, why? So, if you’re skin is breaking out and it’s one big mystery, here are three unexpected reasons to consider. 

Pillowcases

We all spend a fair amount of time sleeping every single day, but we give little to no thought to our pillows and pillowcases. The truth is, they collect bacteria, sweat, and makeup residue, and  that can irritate skin. 

You might even have an allergic reaction to the fabrics or materials in the cases or pillow, so this might be something to check out, too.

Cellphones

It’s gross, but true: your cellphone could have 10 times more bacteria on it than the average toilet seat, according to research from the University of Arizona. Yuck! So, if you go from scrolling and texting to touching your face, there’s a very good chance you’re exposing your skin to lots of germs.

Hair products 

When we talk about skin break outs, we tend to focus on skincare products, but don’t forget about your hair products. They can irritate the skin, too. Especially if they’re coming into contact with your skin. So, be sure to cleanse your face after washing and conditioning your hair to prevent any buildup.

It’s also a good idea to keep styling products away from the face as much as possible, too.
