You talk too long on your phone If you're talking long enough for your cellphone to heat up, then you're contributing increased melanin production on your skin, which causes dark spots.
You're on your phone before going to sleep The artificial light from the screen hinders your body's ability to produce melatonin, which in turn disrupts your natural sleep cycle. If you just have to read that last email or text, dim the screen.
