If you wear makeup, you would at times notice that the makeup is melted down the phone as well? Yuck! What is worst is if you use office phone which goes in many people's hands and get pressed on many faces!
So what is the solution to this pesky issue? Luckily this doesn't require major changes in our lifestyle, rather adopting simple ways we can keep our breakouts at bay.
