Who knew that the secret to keeping skin moisturized and crease free has a lot to do with the type of pillowcase we sleep on? I tend to pay more attention to the feather count of my pillow then the material type of the case so have been a cotton queen for most of my life. However, although cotton might be comfy for a lot of us, it's also one of the reasons we wake up in the morning with crease lines all over our face. In fact, doctors can actually tell what side of the face you sleep in just by looking at your face! I used to think that was a talent only given to some but I've noticed over the years in pictures that my right eye lid crease isn't as high as my left and have equated that to my favorite side to sleep on. After many years of pushing the right side of my face into the pillowcase I fear I'm stuck with a slightly droopy lid.
However, I can do something to prevent if from drooping anymore by using the Beautyzzz Natural Silk Pillowcase. Unlike cotton, the amino acids in silk proteins resemble those found in human skin, creating a virtually perfect pH balance that does not deplete hydrating moisture. Simply by replacing your pillowcase with a silk one, you will maintain a higher moisture in skin since silk doesn't pull moisture from skin or hair. That also translates to a lot less post sleep frizzes! Studies show our skin and hair is more receptive to active ingredients while asleep so it makes perfect sense to be doing everything we can to give our skin the best beauty sleep it can get by using the Beautyzzz Natural Silk Pillowcase!Read More »

One of the most difficult aspects of holiday shopping is trying to figure out what your loved ones will like. I've spent countless hours at department store counters umming and ahhhing over a lipstick shade or cute dress because you want the recipients to be in love with what they're getting. I find to avoid putting ourselves through the mental anguish that organized gift sets seem to garner the most excitement from beauty junkies and we have a couple cute ones that just arrived from Paul & Joe Cosmetics!
The Paul & Joe Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection comes in a cute unicorn embellished cosmetic clutch that includes a face powder with a texture of powdered snow and creamy cheek powder to leave an enchanting blush on the apples of your cheeks. The set comes in two different cheek powder variations to choose from, either a deep pink or apricot orange. If your loved one is more fair with a pink skin tone then 001 Frozen Lilac would suit and if she has more of an olive/orange tone then 002 Sleigh Ride.
The Paul & Joe Holiday 2012 Eye Color and Lip Balm Set is another great gift option. Housed in a holiday inspired box with a Glistening Eye Color and Smoky Eye Color in Winter Wonderland and a Lip Balm to make your puckeroos ultra kissable under the mistletoe, this is a very cute option for only $60.Read More »
