Bedding For Better Skin: The Best Pillows & Sheets to Enhance Your Skin

* The right bedding can prevent skin irritation and breakouts
* Pillowcases and sheets reduce the risk of wrinkles for side sleepers
* Great options for preventing bedhead and hair breakage 

Everyday you come into contact with millions of germs. Many of these end up on the surface of your skin, and when you go to sleep at night, the sweat, oil, and bacteria can end up transferring onto your bedding. Even if you shower everyday, it’s unlikely that you wash your pillowcases and sheets before each use. In fact, most people wash their bedding only once a week, and that’s more than enough time for acne-causing bacteria to grow. Furthermore, sleeping (especially for side sleepers) can also lead to the formation of wrinkles.

Instead of washing your bedding everyday or vowing to sleep in uncomfortable positions each night to avoid wrinkles, invest in these products below that will ensure you’re truly getting your beauty sleep.

5. Slip Silk Pillowcase

Sleeping with a silk pillowcase is one of the best ways to prevent wrinkles and bedhead when sleeping. Not only are they great for your hair, silk pillowcases don’t damage delicate facial skin either. Unlike normal cotton pillowcases, silk pillowcases “slip” rather than pull on the skin which allows your hair and skin to glide across the surface, preventing any pushing and pulling that creates wrinkles.
