I have a bit of a secret trick that I have been using for a few years that works on the whole keeping you beautiful while you are sleeping and it is not what you might expect.
If you were expecting me to tell you that so and so is the best over night moisturiser, you were not on the right track this time.
SLEEP ON SILK
My secret is that I love to sleep on silk pillow cases. I have been using a silk pillow case for about three years now. I LOVE IT!
My head seems to heat up A LOT at night time for some mysterious reason and it was driving me mental. When I read that silk pillowcases are cooler than cotton, I thought I would give it a go. It is so much better. Not only is the silk super soft, but it is far cooler. Relief!
Being super smooth, I find the silk way less irritating so I get to sleep better (in fact I really could just swap to silk sheets too, but that is super expensive, so the pillow cases are a good start!). Other than that, the smoothness of the silk doesn’t create creases in your face which can actually lead to ageing lines or just early morning extra lines that you would rather not have. Side sleepers take note.
I just picked up a new set of silk pillow cases from Shhh Silk, in the marble print. I actually had a white case before and tried as much as I could to keep it white, but it ended up with left over mascara on it (I need better eye makeup remover!) so I thought the marble print might be a little more forgiving. Made using high grade 22 momme 100% pure mulberry silk, the Shhh Silk cases are the real deal. They also have an invisible zip closure which makes a world of a difference as another brand I had was always slipping off of the pillow itself, mad annoying!
So, that is my little secret. Oh and overnight, I tend to use a good rose hip oil as a leave on treatment a few times a week. :)
