This would be a classic blog about skincare if we went straight into how to lather up your face and body to stay acne-free. However, we don't believe in quick fixes because those blog articles don't explain how to prevent acne and how to effectively treat it without an overabundance of acne products.
One aspect of skincare not often discussed is the role of rest and the bedding in which you (hopefully) sleep for 7 hours each night.
A lot of healthy skin is determined by the quality of bedding you sleep in every night. But big skincare brands won't tell you that. Sloomy brings the truth about the significance of healthy, clear skin in the sleep space, which has been often overlooked by skincare experts.
Your bedding greatly impacts your skin. Find out how to fight acne and bacne with our eucalyptus Tencel sheets!
The Basics: Acne & Skincare
As the body's largest organ, our skin is our best protector against germs, heat, and injuries, among many other things. It makes the most sense to treat our skin with the care it deserves since it greatly influences how people see us. Dirt, scrapes, and other uncontrolled factors like pollution can cause harm to our skin, but our skin is also strong, durable, and resistant to dirt.
Since the skin covers your entire body from head to toe, you can actually get acne almost anywhere. Acne is most commonly found on the face, back, neck, chest, and shoulders.
Let's talk about the face, one of the most common areas for acne to occur. It's the first thing people notice about you, so having a red, irritated lump on display all day is a nightmare. Clogged pores often the for cause acne, but don't forget that germs can spread from person to person via touch.
"Well, it's not like I stick my face on every surface I touch all day," Consider, on the other hand, the seven hours you spend with your face buried in your pillow as you toss and turn all night long. A hot flush in the middle of the night, forgetting to thoroughly wash your face after a hard day, or perhaps saliva that drools from the corner of your mouth (we've all been there) are perfect times for bacteria to thrive.
Here's how to get better skin while you sleep
Our eucalyptus Tencel sheets and euro pillowcases are great for sensitive skin because they are softer, antimicrobial, moisture-wicking, and cooling. This is the best nighttime breakout-fighting combination.
Be aware that cotton pillowcases are made in such a way as to trap sweat and bacteria, resulting in facial breakouts. They're like a petri dish full of acne-causing bacteria that you return to night after night to sleep on.
Our eucalyptus Tencel sheets and euro pillowcases have been dermatologist-tested and recommended by beauty experts to keep your skin clear and free of acne.
After a good night's sleep, expect nothing less than radiant skin. However, ensure you remove your makeup and get into the habit of exfoliating once or twice a week to keep pollutants, grime, and bacteria from building up on your skin, in addition to changing your favourite pillowcase.
Even if you don't have acne on your face, you should pay attention to the breakouts that arise in other parts of your body.
Acne can also occur on the back. The unsightly condition of having back acne also referred to as "bacne," is one of life's less enticing annoyances. People love to talk about all the different skincare options available to treat acne on the face. But when it comes to body acne, they prefer to be silent.
However, we are fully aware that your back can suffer from bad bacne, which can be a constant battle for many, especially during the summer as the days grow longer and hotter.
It can be tough to pay attention to the skin on our backs because we turn our backs on it all day. If you neglect your skin, you run the risk of developing acne-causing bacterias.
Because our backs' skin is thicker, it's more likely to get clogged pores and breakouts if we don't take enough care of it.
Why sheets are important
Check out the bedding you're getting into before you jump back into it because it might defeat all of your evening efforts if you're not careful. Cotton sheets are fairly common, and if you or someone you know has a set, you should be concerned about their cleanliness because cotton is excellent at trapping heat.
When you're trying to get a good night's sleep but can't because it's too hot and you're having night sweats, this acts as an incubator. Sleeping with wet sheets traps bacteria and sweat from your skin, which breeds in your bedding the next day, even when you return to work.
We’re here to save the day
But don't be alarmed; we've got this. To counteract the drawbacks of cotton, don’t look further as we have an amazing solution for you. Our eucalyptus Tencel sheets are made from 100% organic eucalyptus, which has antibacterial, antifungal, cooling, and breathable characteristics.
When you sleep with our eucalyptus Tencel sheets and know that we are watching out for your lovely skin, night sweats and hot flashes are out of the question. Whatever your bedding needs are, we have it.
Get rid of your old cotton sheets and sleep on ours instead. You'll avoid breakouts and have some of the best nights of your life. Remember, however, that this does not entitle you to go a month without washing your eucalyptus Tencel sheets. Wash your sheets at least twice a week to remove bacteria and dead skin cell buildup that could block your pores.
