Dr Mamina Turegano, a dermatologist who goes by the moniker “Doctor Mamina” on the TikTok platform, has warned that the practise may be harmful to the skin.
Mamina, whose TikTok account is followed by a million people, used one of the videos to illustrate that mobile phones are constantly covered with bacteria and are sometimes more dirty than public restrooms.
She mentioned that putting the phone up to one’s face on a regular basis can spread bacteria and cause breakouts and other skin issues.

Dr. Mamina recommended routinely wiping the phone down with wet wipes, a cloth dampened in soapy water, or alcohol with a concentration of more than 70% to remove the germs that accumulates on it.
