Nobody enjoys having bad skin. Unfortunately, many factors in our daily lives—from diet, to different products we use, even to the technology we use nonstop—can negatively affect our overall skin health and cause acne or other blemishes.

Even if you wash regularly and use the right skincare products, pimples and blackheads can pop up in places you never expected…. or even in places you can’t see in the mirror! After one video went viral showing a woman getting severe blackheads removed from her ear, doctors are now warning people that our own love for technology, music, and communication might put us at risk for this skin condition.

Are your headphones to blame?
