Looking at me first thing in the morning it would be easy to believe there’s no such thing as beauty sleep. I don’t rest easy, in fact I am known to sleep hard. When I wake up it is quite common for me to have crease marks on my face from my pillow plus a head of hair that looks like Einstein shoved a fork in an electrical socket. So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I ain’t no sleeping beauty! With that said beauty sleep is actually a thing!
When your brain shuts down at night your body keeps ticking along, repairing cells and generally working hard to keep you in top condition. If you’re wanting to maximise your sleeping habits so you look less like Shrek in the morning, then these tips will help you have a better night’s sleep while also helping you to wake up feeling and looking your best. Kinda like when you stay at a guy’s house for the first time and sneak off to the bathroom first thing in the morning to fix yourself up before “waking up” next to him looking like you’d never toss and turn in your sleep — except without all the lies.

Buy a silk pillowcase
The softness of these silk pillowcases has been proven to stop the creases and wrinkles we get from sleeping on rough bedding because your skin is able to glide across the surface rather than tugging. As a bonus, they’re said to stop bed hair and preserve your blowout for days (which is why it is at the top of my shopping list!).
