What does a pillowcase have to do with skincare?

Do you sleep on your back? Are you a side or stomach sleeper? Livestrong.com states that 7% of people sleep on their stomachs with their faces turned to the side and 41% sleep on their sides with their faces resting on their pillow. So, you are sleeping with your face pressed up against your pillow for 4-8 hours (if you’re lucky, maybe more haha). Your pillow has become a overnight masque, whatever is on your pillow is being transferred back on your skin, is tugging and smooshing your skin in all kinds of directions. If you are acne prone you are putting all that bacteria from your face and hair back onto your skin which will end up spreading your acne and causing more breakouts. If you are conscious about your skin aging, I’m sure you’ve heard to not tug on your skin. The more tugging leads to more sagging and wrinkles.
Now for my suggestions, wash your pillowcase (along with any face wash cloths) at least once a week with a clean laundry detergent to avoid spreading of bacteria and irritation from your detergent. Purchase a silk or 400+ thread count pillow case. It should be soft enough to not irritate and tug at the skin.
I’ve put a link below from Allure that lists great options for pillow cases. There’s pillowcases that help fight breakouts, infused with copper threading etc.
