Pillow case talk!

Like anything else that transfers dirt and oil to your skin, pillowcases can cause acne. When your pillowcase isn’t laundered or changed regularly, a build-up of dirt and oil from the environment and your skin and hair touching the pillow is transferred back to your skin. This can clog pores and cause blemishes 😕

✨Preventative steps:

🌱Wash your face every night. This will help to prevent dirt, grime, or makeup from getting onto your bedding. Wrapping or washing hair every night is also extremely helpful.

🌱Sleep on pillowcases made out of natural fabrics. These materials themselves breathe better and transfer less oil.

🌱Launder/change your pillowcases every two to three days. This ensures you’re not lying on a pillowcase with several days’ worth of oil-soaked into it or pooled on the surface.

🌱Liquid fabric softener and dryer sheets leave behind a waxy residue that is highly pore-clogging. Avoid using fabric softener on your pillowcases. Fragrance-free fabric softeners aren’t any better -- in this case, it’s the softening agents that are a problem for acne-prone skin.
