The Game Changing Pillowcase

the best pillow case for anti-agingSpa Silk 100% Pure Silk Facial Beauty Pillowcase ($19.50)

I’m not proud to admit it but I’m kind of a face-in-the-pillow sleeper. I know, I know…unacceptable, but it’s just so comfortable. Fortunately, the aging socialite in me realized that my face is developing a weird-lines-in-the-morning situation, and after doing a little research this led me to discover my now must have – wait for it – pillow case. I know, right? Pillow case…what? The logic is that, as we age, factors including gravity and the decrease of our body’s collagen and elastin production, sleep lines take longer to fade each day and eventually may become permanent. (The horror.)

Well being that it’s silk, the Spa Silk Facial Pillowcase doesn’t snag or absorb moisture and oil the way cotton does, leaving  hair and skin hydrated. Ever since I’ve bought one, I’ve said bye bye to bedhead and facial sleep lines.

A word of caution for those of you who tend to get very oily at night or are sensitive to breaking out: some find that since silk doesn’t absorb moisture and oil the way cotton does, it causes them to break out and be  a little too dewy in the morning.
