Are Your Sheets Hurting You While You Sleep?


At the end of a long, busy day the last thing we think about is what the cotton sheets and pillowcases on our bed can do to our hair and skin. Many cotton blends we adorn our beds with are equipped with moisture-wicking technology which sounds great, but, sometimes it removes too much moisture that our hair and skin actually benefit from. 

How Cotton Sheets Might Be Hurting You

While it feels nice against our skin, especially as we head off to dreamland, cotton is not the best material for your sleeping routine. Cotton and cotton blend materials are created to wick moisture away from your body, which makes them ideal for gym apparel or an afternoon spent in the sun. But, when it wicks moisture from your body for a prolonged period of time, such as sleeping, it can cause your hair to become coarse or brittle. Cotton bedding can also be the cause of premature fine lines or even acne. 


If you have experienced any of these issues, it could be worth it to switch your pillowcases and bedsheets with a material, such as satin, that still feels nice against the skin but does not do as much damage. Take some time to go through your linen closet and decide what sets can stay and which should be replaced.
