Changing your pillowcase more often can help you prevent unnecessary breakouts. Your pillowcase collects all kinds of dirt that can clog your pores over time, it can be everything from conditioner residue left on your hair or facial creams, to sweat and drool. That’s why dermatologists recommend you to change your pillowcase at least once a week, or more if you’re acne-prone. For those with oily skin and hair, or for those who experience night sweats, it is recommended to change sheets two to three times a week.
Washing your sheets regularly will also get rid of dust mites (which are tiny bugs that feed off dead skin cells) that can cause allergies, leaving you with pink patches or puffy, itchy eyes.
