Bacteria: From Your Hands to Your Face

The skin of your face is fairly sensitive. It is thinner than most of the rest of your skin, particularly in the vulnerable areas around your eyes and mouth. Not only is such skin more prone to damage, but it’s also more susceptible to infections from bacteria and other microbes. This is why it is so important to be mindful of the cleanliness of anything that might come into contact with your face.

To this end, most people remember to maintain a clean makeup brush. However, this is not the end of the story. Many of us forget that our hands can also get very dirty; the skin of your hands are harboring billions of bacteria at any moment, and it doesn’t take much for this to get transferred to your face. It is therefore advised that you never apply makeup or skincare products until you have washed your hands first, preferably with an antibacterial soap.
