How A Cleaner Pillowcase Combats Acne & Allergies

Did you know that the well-being of our skin and immune systems can be affected by unclean sheets?

So, What’s the Deal?

Contrary to popular belief, acne isn’t always caused by imbalanced hormones and clogged pores. Just like how bee pollen and cat dander aren’t always to blame for allergies. If you’re a victim to one or both of these buggers, you might find that no matter how diligent your skincare routine is or how consciously you avoid furry friends, your symptoms don’t budge. So what’s the deal? It’s time you start side-eyeing your closest bed-mate: your pillow.


You’ve heard the facts: we spend one third of our lives in bed. Better said, we spend one third of our lives with our faces planted on oil-absorbing, dirt-trapping pillows.* Paying attention to your pillowcase is an important place to start when trying to look after your skin health and immune system.

What’s On Your Pillowcase? Dirt. Oil. Residue. Grime.

Rest anything on your face all night long and it’s sure to make an impact. It’s a vicious cycle: all the hair product residue, natural body oils, makeup residue, dead skin cells, and dirt build-up on your pillowcase can potentially seep back into your skin and airways as you toss and turn at night. So, how do you increase your odds of a clean, clear night’s sleep that promotes your health instead of sabotaging it? Exit the concept of doing more laundry. This ever-elusive idea of washing your pillowcase every single night is a no-go, unless you like high water bills and wasting laundry products. The problem boils down to this: Breathability, temperature regulation, and hypoallergenic properties aren't present in traditional cotton bedding like they are in bamboo viscose blended bedding.

How Can Bamboo Viscose Help?

Lay your pretty head to rest, on a bamboo viscose pillowcase that is. Pillowcases made from bamboo viscose material are naturally hypoallergenic, meaning they can resist common household non-living allergens AND stains. You know that fresh feeling after you just washed the sheets? Bamboo viscose fabric lends that ultra-soft feeling to your skin every night. Bamboo viscose fabric also breathes extraordinarily well, and is stronger and softer than cotton. It also just so happens to be moisture-wicking and temperature regulating, so you’re not resting your face on days (or um… weeks) worth of soaked-up oil and grime from night sweats. Bamboo viscose is carefully crafted to be safe for sensitive skin and sensitive noses. Did we mention people are saying that this is the softest fabric they’ve ever put on their bed?


Sleep Your Way to Freedom.

If you have a sensitive nose or skin, you know how important it is to pay attention to every detail. Removing every inch of makeup, dusting under the bed, eating well, choosing top-tier products. The simpler (and more affordable) it is to make hygienic choices, the higher chance you have of succeeding! Our bamboo viscose pillowcase will have you feeling refreshed every single morning. They even cost the same amount as a traditional pillowcase (because we believe that wellness shouldn’t cost more)
