How To Cure Sleep Acne

Learn what causes sleep acne and how to get rid of it

You may not be aware of this, but there are certain things you may be doing at night that are causing you to have sleep acne, which occurs over the course of the night, which might explain why you often wake up with a brand new pimple on your chin. All you have to do is make some slight changes to your sleep routine in order to help prevent any further sleep acne from occurring. For one, your pillowcase is most likely the main culprit, since it is what your face comes into contact with most while you sleep. The oils and other products in your hair transfer onto the pillowcase, which when brushed against your face then gets into your pores, causing breakouts. Avoid sleeping on your stomach and be sure to wrap your hair in a scarf or some other protective cover. Also be sure to change your pillowcases on a weekly basis in order to keep them clean and get rid of any bacteria or dirt.

On a further note when it comes to sleep acne, many people that do not get a sufficient amount of rest often find that they are breaking out more frequently due to the fact that their bodies are not given ample time to repair themselves, which then results in tired looking skin that reacts harshly under stress. Your body does everything from stimulate collagen formation to reduce inflammation and encourage healing while you sleep, so when you deprive your body of essential rest as well as nutrients, you are only contributing to your acne problem.
