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.

Skin Problems It Could Be Your Pillow

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:

Skin Problems It Could Be Your Pillow

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.

Skin Problems It Could Be Your Pillow

    You’re right, most people don’t wash sheets often enough. Recently, I replaced a number of our pillows because they were looking so weathered after years of use. Sometimes cleaning them isn’t enough…replacement is called for. I’ve never heard of Peach skin sheets before. I’ll have to check them out.

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:24 pm

      Oh such a good point! Yes indeed sometimes we just have to start fresh! PeachSkinSheets is awesome their colors are so pretty and they feel amazing!

    I love peach skin sheets! My co owner sent me some a few weeks ago and they are amazing. The whole pillow thing was hard for me to read! I never in a million years thought of that! I wash my sheets a lot but now I will be more.

    I love that they’re durable but so soft. I’d probably choose eggplant.

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:25 pm

      Eggplant is gorgeous!! I have a set in that color! LOVE them! Good luck in the drawing!

    I change my pillows and sheets very often because you are so right, they hold so much bacteria. I often purchase new pillows also. PeachSkinSheets are by far one of my favorites sheet sets that I use often on my bed, I love that they have that SMART fabric wicks which helps keep away moisture to keep you drier and more comfortable and they are great for woman like me who have hot flashes.

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:26 pm

      Yes sometimes new pillows are a must! Oh yes indeed the SMART fabric is the best and they just feel SO good next to the skin.

  6. January 9, 2018 / 9:01 am

    I have never heard of these sheets but they sound amazing. What a great giveaway, I have to enter to see if I can get lucky and get a set! I do have a skin issue but never thought about my bedding in the past although now it seems like a sure thing. If I don’t win, I will have to go buy a set!

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:26 pm

      They feel so good Melissa you must try them. I hope that your skin issue ends up being something as simple as your sheets. That would be refreshing to know the WHY! Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing!!

    I love that the fabric wicks moisture away and they are anti- pill. Deep pockets is a bonus too! I love the Eggplant color but I would choose Brushed Silver or Graphite Gray so it would match our comforter. Nice review!

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:27 pm

      Oh yes beds these days are getting deeper and deeper! I have a very deep bed and the PeachSkinSheets fit perfectly. Oh so many great choices I love both of those colors! Good luck in the drawing Dana!!

    I have been having skin problems the last year that I have blamed on rosacea so maybe I need a better option! Ordered the Navy Blue sample and cant wait to check it out more!

    • January 9, 2018 / 7:28 pm

      Oh the Navy Blue is the color I am getting next! Love it! Good luck in the drawing and thank you for ordering a sample!

    I’d like the Brushed Silver sheets. These sound like great sheets!

    Oh my gosh my son has some of these and they are as soft as they sound and they hold up so nicely!

  11. January 10, 2018 / 12:31 am

    This is such an educational! I recently developed some skin issues and would love the graphite gray to match my sheets.

    • January 10, 2018 / 12:37 am

      Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing Louisa! I hope that you get to try them and your skin issue clears up!

    I love that they are deep pocket. I have one set and they are the only sheets I’ve ever had that don’t slip off from not being deep enough. I would love a set in the eggplant shade.

    I change sheets once a week, but I usually will change all our pillowcases once between. The anti-snag and temperature control intrigues me because we are hot sleepers and also have two big dogs on the bed with us. I swear it feels like a sauna sometimes lol.

    I’d probably go with a darker color even though I LOVE the Beach Blue- our dogs are Black Labs & the cat is a Tortoiseshell.. with the dry winter air making static cling worse, it’s nearly impossible to use a sticky tape roller. Lol. 😂🤞 Maybe I could use Beach Blue when they’re not shedding so terribly though, it’s gorgeous!!

    • January 12, 2018 / 7:34 pm

      That sounds like a really good routine for changing your sheets out. The addition of changing out pillow cases in between sheet set change is a great idea!
      The beach blue is so pretty! I LOVE it but it does not go with our decor even remotely.
      My next set will be the marine blue which is the deep dark blue.
      And oh yes the static cling this year has been horrible! My tuxedo cat – he has been shedding like crazy and has super dry flaking skin. My sheets look like they have been thoroughly salted lol.

    I like the variety of colors available. They look like well made sheets.

    I bought some peachskin sheets and love them. I got a blue set and a pink set. I love the softness and the pockets being deep. Best sheets ever and will never buy another kind

    • January 15, 2018 / 3:00 pm

      Same here Patty!! The pockets are super deep for most beds they way they are made today it’s necessary! So soft too!

  17. Chris L
    January 14, 2018 / 9:14 pm

    I love these sheets. My friend got some & they are so soft. I got a few different swatches to see what looks best with the bedroom.

    • January 15, 2018 / 3:03 pm

      Oh I can’t wait to hear which you love most and I am wishing you tons of luck in the giveaway!

    I love that Peach Skin sheets have moisture wicking properties and they sound super soft and comfy. I ordered butter cream sample and a light mocha sample. If I was lucky enough to win I would choose the light mocha color.

    • January 15, 2018 / 3:24 pm

      They are so very super soft!! Ohhh I am loving both of those colors! The butter cream is a brand new color too! I have a light mocha color and love them as well! Wishing you tons of luck!

  20. Lisa Brown
    January 15, 2018 / 2:40 am

    the sheets look well made and love the color selection; i would get the eggplant color.

    • January 15, 2018 / 3:24 pm

      My daughter has eggplant and I LOVE them!! Gorgeous rich color! They are so well made – the only sheets I order anymore.

    • January 15, 2018 / 3:28 pm

    I like the BUILD YOUR BED SEPARATES option. I’m fond of Light Mocha & Eggplant.

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:42 pm

      That is my favorite way to do it too! I love mixing the colors! Oh my daughter has eggplant and OMG gorgeous color! Wishing you luck in the drawing !!

    I ordered the Midnight Black and the Crimson Red and would choose from one of those if I won. I love the idea of it wicking away moisture – these darn hot flashes!

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:49 pm

      Ohhh those are sexy colors! Love those choices!!! LOL I hear you on the hot flashes! You will love these and I wish you tons of luck!!

  25. Bianca Munoz
    January 16, 2018 / 7:44 am

    I learned that they are based out of Atlanta GA. I did order the free swatches. Would love to win the Crimson Red. Thank you!

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:51 pm

      Oh the Crimson Red is GORGEOUS! I have a set in that color. I love how no matter how many times I wash the sheets the color has not faded! Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing Bianca!

  26. Cheryl Chervitz
    January 16, 2018 / 2:26 pm

    I like all of the colors they have. I wold like to win mint julep or cotton candy pink.

    • January 16, 2018 / 9:56 pm

      Ohhh those are SUCH pretty colors!! I would love either of them but they would not match my bedroom sadly. I sometimes wish I had lighter colors in my home. Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing.

  27. Allyson Tice
    January 17, 2018 / 12:03 am

    I ordered mint julep..eggplant and vanilla! I love that these sheets keep you cool and warm! the moisture wicking is amazing!

    • January 17, 2018 / 12:17 am

      Allyson you are going to LOVE them! Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing and great color choices!!

  28. Melissa Storms
    January 17, 2018 / 10:53 am

    I love the wicking quality of the sheets the most. I ordered red velvet and the aqua blue swatches. I think I am going to like the red velvet the most.

    • January 17, 2018 / 10:13 pm

      Ohhh red velvet is on my favorites list! I do also love aqua blue but it would not match my decor. Great choices and wishing you tons of luck in the giveaway!

  29. Debbie Penney
    January 17, 2018 / 7:10 pm

    I ordered swatches. I would think I would love to win the chocolate. Thanks for the chance

    • January 17, 2018 / 10:07 pm

      Oh I need a chocolate set for my newly painted bed room! Good choice and great luck in the drawing!

    January 17, 2018 / 7:34 pm

    I like the fact Peach Skin has deep pockets. I always have trouble keeping my sheets in place. I ordered several colors because I have two bedrooms and need sheets for each bed. I ordered sage green, beach blue, ivory,etc.

    • January 17, 2018 / 10:07 pm

      The Sage Green is lovely I have that one! I think Beach Blue is gorgeous and would love to have that but it’s always great to have a neutral set like Ivory! Wishing you tons of luck in the drawing!

  31. Melissa Craig
    January 17, 2018 / 9:39 pm

    I love that they come in different colors because so many times when ordering specialty sheets they only come in white

    • January 17, 2018 / 10:17 pm

      Right?! I have found that same issue! You find a set that looks somewhat good enough to take a risk on and all you can get is white. I mean a white set is good to have but I want some fun colors too! Good luck in the drawing Melissa!
