Sometimes I wonder when I sleep if laying my head on its side aggravates my acne. Although I do know some people lay on their back so their face isn't on the pillow. Also, does anyone know if you should wash your pillow often, like once a week? :-k

Thanks!

I should certainly change or wash the pillow case as often as you can, i usually do it every 3 days to one week. As for sleeping yeah some people find that sleeping lying on there back works but i can't be doing with it so i just settle with changing the pillow often.

DEFINATELY!

I always sleep on my left cheek, and it is my only cheek that gets acne. :D I change my pillow case every 3 days, and that helps some...but it isn't enough. It annoys the crap out of me, but being on Dan's regimen seems to stop it almost 100%.

I try sleeping on my right side, but I always end up back on my left within 10 minutes... just can't stay on the other side.

I try really hard not to let my face touch my pillow, since the area where it almost always does is where I tend to break out, so I'm pretty sure that's one of the main culprits.

I used to sleep on my front but now i sleep on my back. It just takes a bit longer time to fall asleep, dunno why. But it might help, i'm not sure...

lol you should change your pillow case every night my friend. Better yet try sleeping on your back for a change. That's what Ive been doing for the past 6 months. At first its uncomfortable but you get used to it. But a pillow, even a clean one will aggrivate acne because you are moving your face across the pillow when you sleep. Any friction aggrivates acne. But especially when it's a dirty pillow case. I mean cmon, think about it, it's like taking a dirty ass cloth and rubbing it against your face for 8 hours. sound alittle intense? well thats what you're doing buddy.
