The only thing sweeter than getting into a bed with clean sheets is a bed with clean fresh smelling pillows! I am sure you will agree with us. Most people wash their sheets once a week but rarely wash their pillows.
The importance of a decent night’s sleep can not be overemphasized. Your body heals while you sleep, repairing everything from muscles to neurotransmitters. Your heart and different organs rely on sleep to rest and repair themselves. Sleep deficiency also correlates with an increased risk of obesity. Everyone needs a good night’s sleep on a regular basis.
In today’s article, we will be sharing how your pillow helps your skin and how you should sleep at night on your pillow.
Silk pillowcases are good for your skin (and hair!). The material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles in skin, and fall-out, snags, and breakage in hair. The common cotton pillowcase is highly absorbing, drawing away your nourishing creams and oils.
1. If you have under-eye puffiness, sleeping on two pillows would be super helpful, here’s why: once your head is elevated, it helps to cut back fluid retention, therefore, you’re less puffy both within the face and underneath the eyes in the morning. It’s necessary to avoid using an extremely greasy eye cream before bed and at nighttime because the oils will travel into the eyes and cause uncalled-for swelling. If you are applying oils or serum before bed ensure you rub it into your skin very well.
2. If your skin is looking tired or dull, sleeping on one pillow that’s thinner with a low elevation can do the trick, here’s why: throughout the daytime hours, you’re in an upright position for most of the day and also the blood will move down from the face making the skin look pale and tired, most people experience this. Therefore at nighttime, you will make your head as flat as possible and also lean back a bit to re-balance that flow and stimulate circulation to the face to present an inner glow. A well-formulated vitamin C serum like Avila Vitamin C serum is often an enormous bonus as well.
3. If you have gotten deep wrinkles that run from the nostril to the corner of the mouth. We advise you sleep on your back and if maybe you’re a side sleeper, position your head on the lower corner of your pillow, here’s why: to stop wrinkle lines, you would like to avoid a squishing of the cheeks when sleeping and therefore cut back the lines that come naturally with age because of smiling.
4. If you are susceptible to breakouts; tons of breakouts are caused by pillow sleep habits, as a result of sleeping on your pillowcase for 7-8 hours you are transferring a great deal of oil from your hair and face onto the bed linen. Oil finally ends up on your face after you roll over while sleeping and since oil breeds bacteria which then results in breakouts, it solely appropriates that you sleep on a clean pillowcase.
We advise you to use a pillowcase for two nights. Strive to sleep on one side of the pillow on one night and so flipping it over on the second night. Then replace your pillowcase with a recent, clean one.
There are many measures you can take to improve the quality of your nightly sleep such as;
i. Showering before you go to bed with Avila Intense Lightening Herbal soap, Tumeric and licorice body wash or moringa body wash by washing off any allergens you might be carrying from the day. (Make sure you moisturize after this with Avila body moisturizer for either brighter skin, caramel skin or dark skin)
ii. Wash your bed sheets frequently, at least once a week, to remove allergens.
iii. Reducing indoor humidity with a dehumidifier.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PILLOW
1. Wash pillows twice a year; Pillows ought to be washed a minimum of twice a year. Use a mild liquid detergent, powder detergent can leave a residue.
2. Air out pillows once a month; once a month, air out pillows by hanging them on a clothesline outside or place them on a chair outside. Try to keep them in the shade, prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can deteriorate the natural fibers. If your pillows have stains that have penetrated through to the lining, spot-clean them with a mild detergent; air thoroughly to prevent mold. Dampness left in a pillow can lead to mold, so it is important to make sure pillows are completely dry.
NOTE: Makeup removal, face cleansing before bed should be done and can cause a lot of breakouts than just a dirty pillowcase if not done, therefore please ensure you’re diligent regarding washing your face daily.
