Although they are aware of the spread of bacteria and various microorganisms, on average, people touch the face 25 times in an hour.
In fact, many people are not even aware that they are constantly touching their face. If you also have this problem, the first step in overcoming the bad habit is to become aware of your behavior.
Here are some tricks that can help you:
Find a new “hobby”
When you want to get rid of bad habits, it’s best to replace them with new ones. When you feel the need to touch your face, instead, touch your arm or leg.
Don’t ignore the need to touch your face
The worst thing you can do is repeat to yourself that you must not touch your face. If you do, the desire will only increase.
Instead, be aware of your needs and notice the moments when you most often touch your face. For example, when talking on a cell phone, reading or watching TV.
“Deceive” the brain
There are a few tricks you can use to “trick” your brain. For example, people who bite their nails often wash their hands with soaps that have a strong odor that distracts them. Some women varnish their nails with products with bad taste and the like.
Sometimes, the urge to put your hands in your mouth will prevent the greasy hand cream or finger patch.
