You probably replace your pillowcase every so often, but what about your actual pillow? Maybe never? Really, you should be replacing your pillows every year or every other year. The National Sleep Foundation explains that pillows absorb our dead skin cells, hair, and body oil.

Old, skin cell filled pillows are the perfect breeding ground for dust mites. Trust us, you don’t want to be dealing with dust mites. Treat yourself to some new, fresh pillows.
