Clear Skin…A Pillowcase Away

In Saving Face on March 17, 2009 at 11:11 pm


Have you tried everything to keep your skin clear? In The Makeup has found a new trick! Change your pillowcase every night. Bacteria only takes one to two nights to grow in your pillowcase.

We all know that too much sebum and too many dead skin cells will clog your pores. But did you know that bacteria getting trapped inside the pores and multiplying is what causes a lot of the swelling and redness that you see in a blemish? Bacteria is so much a part of blemishes that antibiotics used to be a popular method of treating acne, but fell out of favor because the body develops a resistance to antibiotics, making them ineffective.

So get yourself 5 or 7 pillowcases so you can use a new one every night.
