I’m a stomach sleeper which I know is the worst position horrid when it comes to wrinkles, but I really can’t sleep any other way. I try to sleep on my side or back and I wake up on my stomach. The both times I was pregnant was excruciating, but I digress. Anyway, I will take all the help I can get when it comes to combating wrinkles, especially when I sleep. By now we all know the benefits of copper when it comes to skincare. Iluminage™ (an new subsidiary of Unilever that focuses on ground-breaking luxury skincare technology) has partnered with Cupron® scientists, who have spent over 10 years of research to bring copper technology into intelligent textiles, to introduce a new tool in the anti-aging arsenal: The iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase. It’s specially woven with copper oxide fibers and is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin, in as little as four weeks with continued results over time.
I love the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase mostly because it’s satin-soft, durable materials and uses a safe, non-irritating thread that is embedded with copper oxide fibers woven directly into the pillowcase. The copper oxide used in the construction of the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase is derived from eco-friendly recycled copper. So every night your skin gets the beauty sleep it needs to help maintain a youthful appearance and minimize the visible signs of skin aging – including fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and lack of smoothness.
So how does it work exactly? Copper is a well-known essential mineral known to play an important role in skin cell regeneration. When skin functions at optimal levels, as noted in scientific literature, the natural production of collagen and elastin is maintained, giving skin improved strength and elasticity. When the skin is in contact with the copper oxide fibers woven into the iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase, copper ions are released and penetrate the skin’s upper layers. These released copper ions support the skin’s natural self-renewal process and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I have been using the pillowcase for a few weeks now and have noticed an improvement in my skin’s texture and I am addicted to the feel of the case on my face…so I’m keeping it in the act. Besides, who can resist and little extra moisturizer when they sleep?
