Let me paint you a picture: You've been responsible for the hygiene of your skin, trying to eat healthy food, and using the right products, but still, you wake up to find pimples. What can you do when every attempt to get rid of acne fails?

5 Common objects that could be the cause of your breakouts

1. Your pillowcase

2. Makeup brushes

Dirty makeup brushes are the cause of all evil, well not all, but they might cause irritation, redness, and pimples. So make sure to cleanse your makeup brushes every week.

3. Your cell phone

You should clean your cell phone often.

4. Your bedding

Just as pillowcases transfer bacteria to your face, your blankets, sheets, towels, scarves and any other piece of fabric that touches your face, should be regularly washed in order not to transfer acne-causing bacteria to your face or body.

5. Bath sponges
