Why Changing Your Sheets Should Be A Part Of Beauty Routine

If you are like most people, you probably find the task of changing your sheets a drag. From having to strip your bed to have to fight your fitted sheets so that they stay on properly is all just too much. A survey conducted by Mattress Advisor, proves your not alone, an average, people go 24.4 days before swapping their dirty sheets for fresh ones.

What a lot of us brush off is that we are a walking bag of germs. Jason Tetro, aka “The Germ Guy,” a microbiologist in Canada reminds us that,

“Every single hour, we’re going to be shedding bacteria—and the numbers vary, but it’s in the millions every hour.”

Gross. Right? Another fact to consider is that when we sleep most of us tend to overheat and sweat. This concentration of water in our sheets gives bacteria and germs a safe haven to continue to grow. 

When you don’t change your sheets often you might end up with more acne and dandruff or even put yourself at risk for skin infections. If you’re the type of person that does not fix their bed as soon as they get up, that’s great. Allowing your sheets to dry out in the morning helps with the build-up of germs and bacteria. If you do this you should change your sheets every 14 days. Now, if you’re the type of person who fixes their bed as soon as wake up then you should change your sheets every 10 days, so that not too much harmful germs and bacteria build up. Trust me, I am lazy too but we have to make sacrifices so that are skin is glowing and healthy.
