This sneaky offender is notorious for sabotaging the skin because it gets coated in a build-up of oil, dirt and products like your serum and hair treatment every night. And while it’s generally recommended that we change our pillowcases at least once a week, this tends to not happen because it’s waaay too difficult and geez, we don’t live in a laundromat.
How does one such pillowcase make life so easy? This pillowcase essentially has pages you can turn!
This means you can flip over to a fresh sheet of the cotton case each night and sleep well knowing your skin is safe from rubbing against all the bad stuff you would normally leave on it the night before. Each page can be fastened with a ribbon at the back of the pillow to ensure it doesn’t budge, and there are three pages in total so that’s four night’s of good, clean sleep between washing. Is there anything more wonderful than laying your head down on a fresh pillowcase every night? We think not.
Once you’ve slept on every layer you can just chuck the whole pillowcase in the washing machine and start again. Totally genius.
Just to drive home even more why this product is SO essential for keeping your skin pimple-free, Déjà’s website reiterates that oil and dirt build-up make a prime breeding ground for bacteria. “Some bacteria are good, but some are acne-causing. You don't want to allow them to multiply on the surface where you will rest your face.” Eww.
So by rocking a fresh pillowcase every night, you’re single-handedly avoiding all kinds of grime that can clog pores and cause blemishes. Winning!
While they aren’t necessarily cheap – you’ll be forking out around AUD$55 (Déjà is an American brand) – it’s an investment that pretty much guarantees better skin (and less acne-fighting products in your future)...so, we’re totally sold.
The Déjà Pillowcase ships to Australia and is available from getdeja.com.
Now that you’re guaranteed a clean sleep every night, make sure you get a good sleep! Check out our review of this much-hyped body lotion that claims to help with insomnia.
