1. Acne Breakouts
How often do you change your pillowcase? Once a month? Once every two weeks? Once a week? Whatever your answer might be, you probably don’t do it as often as you should.
Throughout the day, your hair becomes filled with dirt and microscopic critters known as germs. Especially if you frequently touch it with your filthy hands. So, unless you wash it every night before going to bed, your pillowcase will collect the dirt, oils, sweat, and germs. As you rub your face against it, your skin will get irritated, and you will develop acne.
Although this skin problem is not precisely related to the type of pillow you use, it can be solved by choosing another one. That’s right. You can switch to a specific pillow that prevents your body from turning around or to one side during the night.
This way, your face won’t get in touch with the bacteria present on the pillowcase. Alternatively, frequently washing the pillowcase or choosing one with antibacterial properties might solve the problem.
