The best pillowcases to sleep on for youthful-looking skin

Age is just a number, but if the answer is as simple as a pillow…

As we’ve already brought to your attention, our heads spend a hefty amount of time on our pillows. And to our dismay, if we aren’t positioned correctly, it can have a detrimental effect on our skin, augmenting the prevalence of lines and imperfections. This is a problem, given the very necessary nature of sleep in our lives and our hostility towards aging. But what if we told you there was a way to dodge this seemingly unavoidable by-product of sleep in the form of a copper pillow?

Copper: the age-defying natural element

Don’t worry, we’re not telling you to get your shut-eye on a metal slab. This miraculous pillow is constructed from copper oxide fibres, so it’s just as comfortable as the slumber headrest that you’re used to. Hailed by the beauty industry as the latest wonder ingredient, it catalyses the production of collagen and elastin – which keeps your skin supple in the face of age – and hyaluronic acid, which has a plumping effect.

It may sound crazy, but research has found that those who slept on copper-containing pillowcases for 4 weeks actually benefited from significant reduction in the appearance of facial wrinkles and crow’s feet. Who can argue with science? Indeed, copper is found naturally in our skin, and plays a vital role in our skin elasticity.

Silk pillows can also rejuvenate your skin

If you don’t want to doze off on copper, then a silk pillow can also have you feeling fresh-faced and youthful in the morning. According to Dr. Jaliman, Dermatologist, “with a silk pillowcase, your skin slides on the pillow”, meaning that it is much gentler against your skin, nor is it restrictive.
