Your sweet dreams may be leading to some less than sweet breakouts.

While we all know that we should wash our face and remove our makeup before bed, many of us are unaware of one of the biggest skin aggressors: our pillowcase and sheets.

After just one night of use, our pillowcase and bed sheets can accumulate a scary array of bacteria, allergens and fungus as well as dirt and oil. Bacteria can live in the threads of the fabric for days and cause the skin to continuously freak out and break out.

For patients with acne, hygiene is as important as using prescription medications and the right skin care products. Dermatologists recommend washing your pillowcase every two or three days, but who has time for that?!

We’ve found a solution at Project Skin MD: Silvon bedding. Silvon uses the best natural, silver-coated fibers and SupimaⓇ Cotton which eliminates 99% of all bacterial growth. Plus they’re made of all natural materials, so your pores can breathe. With a true 300 thread count, they’re also heaven to snuggle up on at the end of a long day.

Curious about how antimicrobial silver works? Basically, silver carries a naturally positive ion charge and bacteria carries a naturally negative ion charge. These opposing charges are what makes silver and bacteria attracted to each other. Silver then breaks bacteria’s cell wall and destroys it before it has a chance to reproduce. Fun fact: NASA also uses this technology in some of their space suits!

As a bonus, because the silver is woven directly into the fabric, it will never wash away or degrade in strength and will last a lifetime! Talk about sweet dreams!

I also heard a rumor that they induce Ryan Gosling dreams…but we’re still lacking the science to back that one up.

“The cleanest sheets you’ll ever own”, Silvon pillowcases and bed sheets are now available for purchase at Project Skin MD. Prices for a standard single pillowcase start at $59.95, or $94.95 for a pack of two.
