    Acne Spreading While you Sleep!

    Does anyone think this is the main way there acne spreads? I change my pillow case every night and sheets very often but honestly I toss and turn and squish my face into the pillow cash so much at night it has to be rubbing everything around my face and spreading it. I was thinking I shoud find some kind of a mask that I can use with accutane that won't be hard to get off, or are there any tips anyone has for NOT spreading your acne while you sleep?

    I used to have the same problem. I now sleep on my back -yeah it's difficult to get used to at first but you can do it.

    I know what your talking about...I always thought the same thing with the pillowcase and my face. One important thing that you should always try to do is NOT have your face rest on your skin (like your arm). I've actually figured out how to sleep without my face resting on my pillow. Like the previous person said..the best thing is to sleep on your back and just take showers in the morning when you wake up.

    Alright I'll do it! I have tried so hard in the past but it's damn hard to get use to. Oh well it's worth it.

    I sleep face down as well, and it used to drive me nuts. I've tried sleeping on my back, placing 2 pillows either side of my body to keep me in place - but you have no control over your movements when you're asleep so I always woke up lying on my front. Very frustrating.

    My only advice is to only sleep on sheets that are 100% cotton. That helped my skin a lot. also, like it was suggested earlier, try to lean on the pillow rather than skin. that's important.

    My mother suggested making me a spiked glove to stop me from sleeping on my hand. I wasn't too keen on the idea.
