Default How many times do you touch your face in an hour?

I caught just a few minutes of a doctor on The Today Show talking about swine flu. I thought she said that, on average, adults touch their face 18 times an hour and children touch their face waaaaaay more times than that.

Did anyone see that portion of the show? It was this morning.

I try not to touch mine at all because of the germ thing.

I'm touching mine all the time, don't even think about it when I'm doing it.

I touch mine a million times an hour. Bad habit.

I do it a lot, because I have to brush my hair back from my eyes, or rub an eye or something.

I remember my friend's mom instructing me that a lady never touches her face. Guess I'm not a lady, and don't want to be. LOL

I probably touch mine more than I should at home, but at work...no way! I work in a pharmacy and I'm around too many germs.

Same here.

The last time I got really sick, I remembered the exact moment that I put my pinkie into the corner of my eye to remove "eye snot". The little build up that you get late in the day when your eye makeup is melting. I thought immediately, on the spot..."oh great, now I'm gonna get sick". Sure enough!

I try sooo hard to keep my fingers AWAY from my eyes, no matter what!
