10 Huge Sleeping Mistakes

Not washing pillowcase regularly

To prevent buildup of oils, dirt and sweat, it is recommended to change your pillowcase every 3-4 days in addition to weekly bed sheet changes.

Sleeping on cotton instead of silk

Silk or satin, being gentle and less abrasive than cotton, can help reduce skin aging, wrinkles caused by sleep creases, acne, infection, and other skin concerns.

Using too much or harsh detergents

Using a gentle, toxin-free liquid laundry detergent is the best choice for bed sheets, particularly pillowcases, as harsh detergents can damage the fabric and cause skin allergies

Going to bed with wet hair

Sleeping with wet hair may cause fungal infections and breakage, and applying spray-on conditioner may lead to skin irritation.

Staring at your phone before sleeping

Using gadgets before bedtime can disrupt natural rhythm, cause wrinkles, and lead to dark circles; avoid their use an hour before bedtime for a refreshed look.

Skipping nighttime beauty regime

Nighttime beauty regimen tailored to skin type with facial oils and anti-aging serums can add weight to the face, causing night creams to appear heavier than day creams.

Not taking off your makeup at night

Using a mild cleanser to remove all makeup residue and dirt before applying nighttime skincare is crucial to prevent breakouts caused by clogged pores.


Sleeping on your back may have potential benefits for facial health and appearance, but results may vary depending on individual factors.
