Did You Know Your Pillow Can Impact Your Skin?
If you’ve struggled for years with breakouts and are now seeing wrinkles appear by what feels like the day, join the club! I’ve been on a journey for years to combat the awful effects associated with an item you use every single day — your pillow. After using anti-wrinkle products and getting my fair share of beauty sleep, I began to wonder if it had more to do with what I was sleeping on than what I was doing before bedtime to prevent the wrinkles and breakouts I dreaded. Here’s my experience with how a normal pillow can impact your skin (and why switching could provide you all the relief you need!).
If you’re like me, you have a skincare routine designed to combat age. No one wants wrinkles, especially when they’re preventable! Yet, I found I had the same issues night after night. My pillow continually wiped off my anti-wrinkle products that I took the time to apply. Instead of aiding my beauty sleep and benefiting my face, I was starting back at square one. The problem was my pillow, so I needed the solution to focus on that.
When we first start breaking out as teens, we’re told that it’s all a phase. It’ll go away, right? Wrong! When the root of your problem is your pillow, then this type of acne doesn’t fade. It continues well into adulthood. Acne Mechanica is a type of acne that results from materials or objects touching your face. This may be hair or the build-up of dirt and oil from either the environment or your own hair and skin touching the pillow. The ultimate result is clogged pores and blemishes. It doesn’t matter how well you wash your face in the morning and at night if you’re continually sleeping on a pillow that’s promoting acne.
When the problem is your pillow…
I wrestled with these problems and couldn’t figure out what to do. The wrinkles and breakouts continued to occur regardless of what I did before or after I slept. It was the pillow that was the problem, so I knew I needed a new pillow to help give my complexion that extra boost I was seeking. But did a beauty pillow exist? What about an anti-wrinkle pillow? How would that work since my flat pillow wasn’t cutting it?
I designed the Flawless Face Pillow because there was no design that existed on the market that did exactly what I needed it to do. The pillow wraps around your head and stays on all night while avoiding any and all anti-wrinkle products you’ve applied. It’s comfortable and ensures a great night's sleep.
Investing in something you use for 8 hours every single night may be one of the best purchases you make for your entire skincare routine!
