SAY NO TO COTTON


Did you know that the fabric we love Cotton, is sucking the life out of your hair and skin while you sleep?

OMG say it ain't so! 

So NO to Cotton

Yes, think about it, cotton is an absorbent fiber, which means that it's absorbing moisture while you're sleeping on it. Sorry to tell you but a rough cotton pillowcase not only causes fine lines and wrinkles, but it can cause hair breakage, leaving your hair damaged and thin. In addition to its moisture-sucking properties, cotton's rougher texture also encourages friction—which is likely causing your curls to be drier than they otherwise would be, in turn causing tangles and damage that you don't want or need. 

Truth be told if you aren’t avid about changing your pillowcases once or twice a week, chances are they might be dirtier than you think. Cotton pillowcases can soak up a lot of dirt and oil from your skin, especially when you sweat during the night and can then clog your pores, especially if you aren’t changing them on a regular basis. So, all those beauty products you use to keep your skin flawless and hair moisturized won’t be able to work their magic at night because your dirty pillowcase is reversing them with its nasty grime while you sleep.

Dermatologists can tell which side of your face you sleep on because of these creases. Allure Magazine interviewed Dermatologist Rebecca Kazin, who said: "Night is the best time to repair skin, so it makes sense that so many innovations are happening right now in this field. Since we spend up to one-third of each day asleep, why not make the most of these hours?".

What are some reasons not to sleep on cotton pillowcases? 

  • Soaks up dirt and oil from your skin
  • Cause breakouts on back and shoulders
  • Smothers your hair
  • Promotes hair breakage
  • Promotes hair thinning
  • Promotes eyelash and eyebrow breakage
  • Created premature fine line and wrinkles
  • Absorbs night sweats leaving pillow wet 
  • Effect the collagen in our skin which affects its elasticity 
  • Holds bacteria and dead skin cells 
  • Dehydrates skin and hair
  • Collects dust mites, mold, and fungus in addition to many other allergens that get trapped between the cotton threads

 

NOTE TO SELF: TAKE YOUR PILLOW SLEEVE WITH YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL, BECAUSE IT KEEPS YOUR BLOWOUTS, AND SAVES YOUR SKIN FROM THE HARSH ELEMENTS!
