Can my pillow be breaking me out, a major factor in sneaky stubborn acne? Using laundry detergent with toxic chemicals can have negative side effects on your skin. Red Lotus Skin Peels and Lash Salon, in Portland, Oregon teaches about acne and skin car
Bet you didn't see this one coming!
Last November (sounds so long ago already!) we talked about chemicals found in laundry detergents that you might be using, some of which are linked to cancer, lung damage, and hormone disruption. Given that your clothes are on your body all day and you sleep on your pillows all night, you might want to think twice about what you use to launder them.
Is using chemical detergents to wash your pillow cases causing your acne or wrinkles? Probably not. But it’s definitely not helping, and some people are more sensitive to chemical irritation than others. Either way, having those substances near your face (for ⅓ of your life!) does not a happy complexion (or body) make. You might try making your own detergent if DIY is your style.
After switching the detergent, proper skin care products may be required to help clear out any breakouts. We recommend PCA skin peels and proper homecare.
