How often do you change your sheet set and pillow cases?
Pillows are storage facilities for bacteria, germs, fungus and more nasty critters!
Yes, it can be a chore to strip the bed and wash but we probably are not doing it often enough!
Even if you have multiple sets of sheets and pillowcases taking the time to just do it can be burdensome.
You may be surprised to discover just how many germs and bacteria are laying around with you at night.
Skin Problems? It Could Be Your Pillow!
Every night as we sleep we shed skin.
Unless you have showered before bedtime you may also be filling your bedding with whatever you have picked up along the day.
Our pillows especially are subject to so many icky things from unremoved makeup, hair product, dirt, germs, bacteria, you name it.
Even after one night’s sleep, you could be leaving fungus and allergins in your cuddly pillows.
What is supposed to be a haven of refuge becomes a battlefield of potential illness and skin issues.
Now I am certainly not perfect when it comes to how often I wash my sheets.
To be honest, I only wash them every couple of weeks!
I would not wear the same clothes for two weeks without washing them.
Yet, we do seem to be lazy when it comes to what we lay our skin on.
So when it comes to pillowcases, it is even more vital we be assertive and wash them often.
Often as in every two to three days.
Skin Problems Can Be Linked To Dirty Pillows:
As someone who loves cuddling her kitties at night, I know how many germs they can track into my bed.
Washing your pillowcases frequently, or at least changing them out with fresh cases, can eliminate many skin related issues.
No, it won’t do much for those fine lines and wrinkles, but it can help with an evener skin tone, blemishes, and breakouts.
If you are already prone to breakouts changing your pillowcase is even more important.
Now with that said, if you are prone to acne due to your DNA, medications, or other health problems I can’t promise changing your pillowcase will make a huge difference.
Yet, for other health reasons alone it is worth a try.
If you suffer from allergies, a fresh pillowcase can do wonders.
The fact is, we need to be more diligent in how often we change our bedding.
I raise my own hand in confession that I need to do this too.
I do notice a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin when I take the time to change my sheets every three days.
