If that doesn't sounds like a horror story tell me what does? Sleeping with the enemy of sorts! and our experts agree and this is why. You spend about 6-8 hrs a night on average resting your face on your pillow. The last thing you want to do is for your beautiful face to spend that much time on a dirty surface! Pillows collect oils from your hair, uhm drool, and the occasional make-up slip-up. In other words all of those germs combined can easily accumulate into your face causing problems. This is what our experts recommend. Flip your pillow every night. Change your pillow case once a week. Always buy pillow cases made from natural fabrics. Wash your pillowcases with gentle detergent. Chemicals in fabric softener leave a waxy residue and bleaching agents might cause irritation, redness and uneven skin tone! It's amazing how little changes make a big difference when it comes to your skin. We can never be too cautious when taking care of our face.
