Studies claim that the average person touches his/her own face over 2,000 times per day. Do you think you could go 24 hours without doing so even once (with no physical restraint or barrier)?
My glasses keep falling off my face and my eyelashes keep going into my eyeballs.
No, just thinking about that made me want to touch it more lol
With some sort of incentive, yes
People who answered 'yes' are liars.
I literally just scratched my face as a was reading this poll. I believe it.
2000 times? i don't believe that. 200 times, maybe. (now if you said men touch another body part 2000 times a day, that i would believe.)
My face gets itchy, especially during these sweaty summer days. Does touching with an object like cool wet washcloth count?…then there's no way.
What if a part of your face gets itchy?._.
What if your butt gets itchy?
As long as pushing my glasses up doesn't count, I'm in!
I could but I wouldn't want to.. I have to brush my teeth at some point.
Rarely touch my face during the day, hand bacteria on face = eek!
I was touching my face as i read that
I try not to but I am the worst for touching my face.
Can't do it! Gotta rub the beard
DEFINITELY! The only time I touch my face is to wash it because I have OCDs. So 24 hrs without showering (which sometimes happens on a busy day) and it would be natural to me!
If you ever tried this your nose would suddenly become amazingly itchy.
I have acne prone skin, so I rarely touch my face
Try being a Marine standing at attention
Touched my face two times just reading this.
Too many piercings and itches, ha.
My eyes water too much for that to be possible
In fact, I'm touching mine now. Aaaaaah...
Nope. I touch my face all the time. Not in a creepy way though.
Mostly I just don't want to bother thinking about it that much.
The urge to wash would be too strong
Every time I try to do something like that I will get an irresistible itch that I can't help but scratch.
Could I use a tissue?
I wash my hands frequently and avoid touching my face in hopes of being sick less often. It would be hard not to touch my face at all though, because I wouldn't be able to wash it.
I have terrible allergies and have to blow my nose a lot, so no.
If some body is awake for a 14 hour day, they would have to touch their face every 25 seconds. But 2000 is just the average. Some people are obviously higher, so about every 15 seconds or less.
After I brush my teeth
So funny. As I was reading the question I was scratching away an itch on my face. I have to say no.
I also lean my cheek on my hand, so no.
I have to put my makeup on, so no.
Just the thought of trying not to touch my face, makes my face itch.
I would take a try at doing it, but I believe I would end up doing it inadvertently anyways ... It's second nature.
Even if I managed while awake, I would do it while sleeping or reading or watching TV . I did it twice while typing this.
Everyone that said yes would lose in less than an hour.
during allergy season in N.Y.? HAHAHA,. what?
I touch my hands with my face more often than I touch my face with hands, I think.
We need something to play with, right?! ;)
I would make a crude comment but I'm above that
Well right now it's allergy season, so definitely no. But even if it wasn't, no.
My face got itchy after I read the question, so no.
I must be the exception lol. I only touch my face when I wash it in the morning and in the evening or if I'm scratching my forehead. Ten times in the average day, tops.
Our primate minds just have to make sure the head is still there I guess....
No way. For some reason when I'm nervous I immediately go for my face. Or I scratch my head. Weird I know
I think the only person capable of reaching 2k times a day is that kid from Dazed and Confused.
I'm pretty sure I only touch my face to wash it, scratch an itch, or shave (trim)...
