L et me tell you at the start, that there is no right answer. This is an individual decision, as everyone has their own beliefs about what is right. Some change the pillowcase every day, others once a week, again someone else does it only once a month. However, we still thought it would be right to prepare a blog post with some useful tips on what you need to pay attention to. However, you may look at everything completely differently after this post.
Facts you may not have considered
The fact is that your pillow is in close contact with your hair and face all night, and even though you wash your face before bed, you certainly don’t wash your hair every night, which means it’s impossible to ensure complete cleanliness of the pillow, even if the pillow looks completely clean, there are particles of dirt hidden on it. But if you ever make a mistake and treat yourself to a royal breakfast in bed or allow your pets to sleep with you, your bedding will soon gather even more hidden dirt “workers”. We are talking about bacteria, mites and / or even viruses here. So the next time you think about whether to wash seemingly perfectly clean bedding, do so. If nothing else, at least wash the pillowcase. It will benefit your health.
What about hair and skin care cosmetics?
Have you ever thought that hair care products can damage the skin on your face? Remember that the products you apply to your hair will come in contact with the pillow at night and then with skin on your face. Even though the silk pillowcase will not absorb the substances you have applied to your hair, it does not mean that there will be no hidden particles left on the pillow that can damage your facial skin, such as acne and other side effects.
Adjust the pillowcase change period to your skin
Most experts believe that it is enough to change the pillowcase once a week, but remember that every skin is different and has different requirements, so we advise you to adapt the pillowcase replacement to your skin. If you have skin problems, try to wash your coating more often than you would otherwise, but of course do not use aggressive detergents. The same is true if you have a cold. Above all, if you have acne, we advise you to change the pillow cover daily.
However, let us remind you that the face is not the only part of the body that you need to pay attention to when deciding how often you will change the pillow cover. If you have breathing problems, asthma or any other respiratory disease, the change of bedding could improve the condition or make it worse.
