What's Lingering On Your Pillowcase

What's Lingering On Your Pillowcase

Pillowcases accumulate bacteria, dirt and oils. The solution? WASH THEM! 🤣

Indicators Your Pillow Might Be Causing Your Acne:

1. Cheek and Side-Face Breakouts: Breakouts concentrated on cheeks or side of face, especially on the side you sleep on, could signal your pillow’s involvement.

2. Breakout Patterns Post-Wash: If your skin improves after washing bedding but acne returns gradually, your pillowcase might be a culprit.

3. Improved Skin on Different Beds: Better skin after sleeping elsewhere, like in a hotel, suggests your own bedding, including the pillow, might be triggering acne.

4. Worsening Skin in the Morning: Morning skin issues could indicate overnight factors, possibly your pillowcase, are worsening your skin condition.

5. Rare Bedding Washes: Infrequent washing of sheets and pillowcases allows oils, dirt, and bacteria to accumulate, directly causing acne.

Additionally, having an antibacterial pillowcase like the Clean Sleep Silver Ion Pillowcase can do wonders for combatting bacteria on your pillow, and keeping your skin more clean and healthy.
