You Should Be Cleaning Your Mattress More Often Than You Think to Avoid Acne

There are many unexpected causes of breakouts, regardless if it’s on your face or body, and your mattress could be one of the culprit. Acne is caused by a combination of inflammation in your skin, high oil levels, acne-causing bacteria, and sticky skin cells within your follicles blocking oil from freely flowing out.

Every night when you sleep, oil and dirt are transferred from your skin to your sheets. Especially if you did not wash your face regularly before bed. On a day to day basis, you can expect oil, dead skin cells, dirt, dust mites and bacteria can build up on your bed sheet and this interferes with your freshly washed face and body when you hit the sack.

 

wash and replace your bed sheets regularly

To prevent breakouts, the best solution to ensure that your peaceful night’s sleep doesn’t wreck havoc on your skin is to wash and replace your bed sheets regularly. Dirty sheets are full of bacteria that can cause your skin’s immune system to become overwhelmed and increase the possibilities of clogged pores and acne breakouts. It is highly recommended to replace your bed sheets once every 1 to 2 weeks. If you have acne prone or sensitive skin that are particularly prone to breakouts, you might want to increase the frequency of replacing your bed sheets and be conscious of the type of detergent that you use to wash your bed sheets as it can have an impact on your skin too. It will be a safer option to use a fragrance-free detergent as these nice smelling detergents might irritate your skin further. And avoid fabric softeners too!

 

Changing your bed sheets weekly

Changing your bed sheets weekly might be a little too much of a hassle but think about the benefits you’re reaping. Cozying up to clean and fresh bed sheets at night helps to keep your skin clean and clear.

 

get your mattress deep clean regularly

Apart from replacing your bed sheets often, you should get your mattress deep clean regularly to extract dust mites, their excrement and your dead skin that are embedded deep within your mattress. This is not only beneficial for your skin but also for your health.
