Why your skin is begging you to change your pillowcase

04/09/2018 / Editor's picks

We spend about a third of our day in bed (make that two-thirds come the weekend, thank you). Great news for our mood, bad news for our skin. Our pillowcase is a breeding ground for bacteria – harbouring all the sweat, oil and straight up dirt from your skin and stashing it right there.  The longer we wait before sticking it in the washing machine, the more bacteria builds up. Thus, the vicious cycle of clogged pores and acne, commences. This is why you should be changing it.
