Even if you wash your face faithfully every night, pimples and blackheads can find their way onto your skin. Unfortunately, despite your arsenal of skincare and daily consumption of tons of water, acne still happens.
While half the battle is cleansing your face and having a robust skincare routine, the other half may come down to switching out your pillowcase. The truth is, your pillowcase can be a hoarder of dirts and oils — all thanks to your hair — that cause blemishes when they come in contact with your skin.
That’s why Skin Laundry created an acne-fighting pillowcase and face wash set. The two serve as a one-two punch to help promote clean and clear skin.

“Most people don’t realize that our hair holds more dirt in it than anywhere else on our bodies,” Chris Brantner, certified sleep science coach at SleepZoo.com told Insider. “And each night, we’re mopping our pillowcases with it. Not only that, we are rubbing our faces all over our pillowcases as well, leaving behind sweat, oils, dead skin cells … you name it.”
The pillowcase has a 300-thread count and is “treated with charged silver ion technology.” According to the product description, it can “help reduce blemish-causing bacteria by up to 99.9 percent.” Keep in mind, the brand recommends that you wash the pillowcase every seven to 10 days.
And if that isn’t helping, you can incorporate the extra deep gel face wash into your daily skincare routine. It’s an oil-free wash that contains salicylic acid, an ingredient that’s supposed to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove the dirt and oil from your face, according to the product description.
