Have you ever wondered that how even after leading such a healthy lifestyle and following a strict ‘early to bed, early to rise’ mantra, you still get random acne breakouts, wrinkles or experience hair fall. You are fed up of all this, but haven’t been able to pin down the reason?
Well, we might have the answer you need. Let’s just say your pillow covers are to be blamed! Don’t be surprised. Here are all the things you need to know about the relationship between your pillow covers and all the problems that we mentioned above.
You’ve been religiously removing makeup and washing your face before hitting the bed at night, but that’s not enough, because there are some acne breakouts that occur because of the fluffy, unwashed, dirt-laden pillows that you comfortably rest your head on. When your pillow covers are not washed regularly, there is a build-up of germs and dirt, not just from the environment, but also your hair and skin when you rest on them. The same get transferred to your skin, clog your pores and voila, you have acne!
Sleeping on your side with the pillow touching your face causes facial compression. Over a period of time this position exerts pressure on your face and the result is wrinkles and sleep lines that are difficult to get rid of unless you go for Botox treatment.

But, regardless of whether your hair is tied or untied, you do see a couple of strands astray on the bed, right? This happens because of the friction between your hair and your pillow. At night, you toss and turn and your hair ends up succumbing to the friction. Apparently tying your hair does reduce hair fall, but the best would be sleeping without pillows, no?
