Stay Fab With Silk

Silk duvet cover and pillowcases can look luxurious in your room but not only does it look good it also has its benefits! Silk can be worth splurging on because of the benefits it has on your hair and skin!

Cotton is naturally absorbent, meaning it will pull moisture from your skin. For those who care for their skin tend to have a night routine of our favorite serums and creams, last thing you want is too have your pillowcase absorb it all!! This can cause your skin to become dry as you sleep but with a silk pillowcase your skin will retain moisture and look fresh and hydrated.

Silk is naturally cool so this helps reduce sweat during your sleep. When you sweat while your sleep it can make your hair oily and breakout!! Using a silk pillowcase will keep you cool during your beauty sleep.

Some of us have sensitive facial skin, which is why using a silk pillowcase would be a great idea to avoid any potentially irritating added chemicals and various environmental allergens such as dust mites, mold, and fungus. That is the last thing I would want during my beauty sleep!!

How many of you wake up with frizzy hair?! Friction is no fun… It causes split ends!! To avoid having your hair look dry and preserve your fab blowouts start using a silk pillowcases. There are many silk pillowcases on the market but if you are hesistant to start using silk you can start by using one I offer at my skin care clinic and on my site, The Pillowcase by Circadia. This luxuriously soft fabric scientifically designed to support your skin while you sleep, it maintains the skin’s hydration and even helps prevent sleep lines that cause wrinkles.

 

Let me know if you use a silk pillowcase or which one you decide on buying! I love hearing your product recommendations.

 

Remember… Stay fabulous with a silk pillowcases and… Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Time to Replace That BEAUTY BLENDER!!

Hello my beauty fans!

How many of you use a Beauty Blender?! More and more people are using this iconic beauty invention to get well-blended foundation. If you have not tried one I suggest you do to get flawless looking makeup or look into using a dupe such as the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This sponge is amazing but it can absorb bacteria and cause breakouts!! It is very important to wash it and know when it is time to replace it!

One of the first few things you should look for is if your Beauty Blender has rips or is starting to flake. If it is loosing its shape then it is time to throw it away and get a new one!! I suggest you should replace your Beauty Blender every two months if you were makeup several days a week but if you don’t wear makeup you can push it a little bit longer. Do not push it anymore than 3 months!! That will not be good for your skin.

If you are starting to get mystery breakouts and you cannot target exactly why you should evaluate if you are eating right, drinking enough water, and staying on top of your skin care. If you are doing all things right and you are still breaking out then it might be because of your Beauty Blender!! If that is the case throw it away and buy a new one, even if it is sooner than two months.

Now that we have that covered there is one thing to remember! All of us love to have flawless looking makeup but it is important you wash your tools, including a beauty sponge. If you fail to do this it will affect your skin and defeat the purpose of your skincare!! Flawless makeup starts with healthy skin!!

 

Keep it beautiful

Product Recommendation: Modern Mask by DermAware

Face masks are one of my favorite skin care products. They’re easy to apply, fun to use and are great at delivering results!! What I love about face masks is the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single use! Everyone should introduce masking into their skin care regimen, if they haven’t done so already.

One of my personal favorites and a best seller at the studio is the Modern Mask by DermAware! Apply this product overnight and your skin will go through a noticeable transformation that you can see and feel!

Not only are face masks great for the skin but you also enjoy the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home!

BEAUTY TIP: Before applying your face mask, dab a small amount of eye gel or eye cream around the eyes to protect this delicate area from dehydration.

It is time to kick your skin care routine up a notch by introducing this face mask and waking up to beautiful, youthful skin every morning with this phenomenal multi-peptide messenger mask!

 

Keep it beautiful!!

XOXO

Beauty Sleep goes next level!

I came across this Marie Claire UK article on a new trend and had to share!! It talks about a selection of pillows designed to prevent lines and aging with special "ingredient infused" fabrics to treat skin, silks to reduce creasing and shapes to increase radiant inducing glow!

I thought it was interesting as I have carried "the Pillowcase" by Circadia (click over to "shop" to check it out!) since I opened the studio! This particular case is a special microfiber that prevents creasing and moisture depletion. I  really liked this one as it does not over promise and the premiss made sense. (Many materials wick moisture from the skin and regular pillow cases to cause skin creasing which may lead to lines.) And it is super soft and comfy!

Are you going to go next level with your beauty sleep and try and new pillow case?!? I'd give the others a try at some point. But for now, keep it simple with a silk or satin and use fabulous nighttime skincare!!

xoxo,

Gregory
