You wouldn’t want to have freckles, dark spots, blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone on your face, or would you? If not, then under no circumstances must you forget to apply a good amount of a good sunscreen, with at least SPF 30, if nothing. No matter how the weather is outside, sunny or rainy or cloudy or just cold, always, always, and always coat your skin with the nourishment od a good sunscreen.
6. Keeping your phone’s screen dirty
Who could have thought, that our beloved gadget would be the one that is causing our skin so much damage?

So, it is up to you now, whether you wanna carry those harmful germs to your face, or would rather prefer to clean your phone screens often. And use headphones instead of directly using your phone to take calls.
