You Will Never Use Your Phone In A Toilet Again!

You Will Never Use Your Phone In A Toilet Again!

Sometimes we all take a phone into the toilet. But it is a very dangerous habit! You can expose yourself and others to germs like salmonella, E. Coli and C. “If you wipe your bum then pick up your phone, you may as well not bother washing your hands because all the bacteria you put on your phone will end up back on your hands,” hygiene expert Dr. Lisa Ackerley told.

So what we all should do? Dr. Ron Cutler, director of biomedical science degrees at Queen Mary’s University London, said: “Basically, you just shouldn’t (take your phone into the toilet) if you are at all concerned about the transfer of viruses and fecal contamination.” He said that levels of contamination vary widely depending on where the toilet is.

A small office may not be a problem, but a hospital or a cruise ship where viruses may be circulating are different.

Remember, viruses transfer not only by hands. It is the main way, but not the only one. “Spray could travel around six feet from the flush,” Dr. Ackerley said. That’s why you shouldn’t leave your toothbrush close to the toilet and put your phone down on the toilet roll holder or any shelf that might be there.

By the way, germs could survive up to a couple of days on your phone! “Phones heat up a little bit giving bacteria a nice warm environment,” Dr. Ron Cutler said. “If people handle sweets and leave a sticky coating on the phone, that’s an even better place for bacteria.” So don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and water and leave the phone in your bag before visiting the toilet!

Simple Ways To Look Younger Than Your Age

Simple Ways To Look Younger Than Your Age

Some Signs of aging can get really bothersome. It’s a nightmare to see yourself getting older day by day when you stand before the mirror. It’s obvious that you must be thinking to yourself, those were the good ol’ days when you were sweet sixteen with perfect shiny hair and a glowing face. Well, accepted that aging is something that one should accept gracefully but if you take good care of yourself, you can definitely avoid some signs of aging from showing up on your face before the time has come. Follow these tips and you’ll be successful at keeping yourself young.

1. Keep yourself hydrated

Yes, it is a proven fact that drinking sufficient amount of water is the natural way of taking care of your skin and health. Water flushes out toxins from your body which helps to control wear and tear of your skin. So the next time you are thirsty, try to have water over other carbonated drinks.

2. Clear the makeup

Of course, makeup helps in hiding the flaws on your face but do not go overboard with it. Too much makeup can actually make you look fake and you know this ladies, men really do not appreciate too much makeup either!

Do not forget to remove the makeup with the help of a good cleanser or baby oil before sleeping. This is utmost essential as makeup kept overnight can be harmful for the skin.

How to Protect Your Scalp

How to Protect Your Scalp

All the experts agreed that hats that fully cover our scalps offer great protection.

Wearing a hat every day is ideal, but if you’re not spending much time outside, you can opt for a protective hairstyle. Try slicked back ponytails and buns to avoid parts.

According to Dr. Rossi, if you do go for a parted style, make sure that you’re applying sunscreen to your part line. Look for a water-resistant formula with at least SPF 30 protection. Apply it throughout the day and immediately after swimming. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your ears and the back of your neck. If there’s one thing we learned, it’s that we need sun protection on all areas.
