If you have acne, night sweats or a flaky skin condition like psoriasis or eczema, the right bedding can really help. This DermaTherapy pillow case has been specifically developed to create a smoother, cleaner and drier surface to sleep on, for reduced abrasion to sensitive skin.
Lint-free and 37% smoother than polycotton or regular cotton, this pillow case provides a low-friction surface to help reduce abrasion to the delicate skin on the face and head. For acne, facial eczema and other sensitive skin conditions, the smooth and cool surface offers a comfortable, undisturbed night’s sleep. Furthermore, the density of the weave acts as a natural barrier to house dust mites, which can trigger symptoms in the allergic.
If you often overheat and sweat at night, you might find it difficult to keep your pillow cases clean, and find stains on your pillow. This DermaTherapy pillow case is helpful for those experiencing night sweats. It has special fibres that wick away moisture, enabling the perspiration to be quickly evaporated. It dries much more quickly than standard fabrics, giving you an undisturbed night’s sleep and helping to protect your pillow.
An overgrowth of bacteria can not only infect broken skin, but can also worsen or even cause acne. The special antimicrobial coating on the DermaTherapy fabric helps to reduce germs and bacteria growth. This antibacterial pillow case helps to reduce build-up of acne-triggering bacteria like p. Acnes. A study by Wake Forest University in the USA examined patients using a placebo (standard pillow case) and a DermaTherapy pillow case. Those using the DermaTherapy version saw a 49% reduction in inflammatory spots, compared to just 14% with the placebo.
If you have broken skin which causes you to bleed overnight, or scalp psoriasis which can cause flaking and staining from ointments, you may find that regular washing does not remove the entire residue. This DermaTherapy pillowcase has an incorporated ‘soil release’ finish to help with the release of stains and oils in the wash. The result is a brighter, fresher pillow case which is easier to keep clean.
