Weird Beauty Product of the Day: Can a Pillowcase Made of Copper Fibers Fight Wrinkles?


They judged subjects’ skin based on before and after pictures. The studies were double-blinded, placebo-controlled, and all published in peer-reviewed journals, which gives them some legitimacy. So I switched out my regular old boring cotton pillowcase for the Iluminage. Aesthetically, it’s really nice. It has a bit of a sheen to it, but not in a slippery satin sheet kind of way, and the beige color matched my bedding. You can wash it, too, but don’t use fabric softener. I’ve been sleeping on it for about two weeks now, but haven’t noticed much difference in my skin yet. Also, I generally sleep on my right side, which means only one side of my face is theoretically getting the benefits. I’m also slightly worried about my hair, because a few months ago there was a lot of buzz about a study showing that copper from your tap water and pipes could be really bad for your hair. If it can absorb into my skin, can it also absorb into my hair?

How much of your beauty haul do you use?

Many admitted they bought items they didnt really need while nearly a quarter of those polled claimed it was because they had been given the items as gifts. And over half admitted they probably had products in their collection that were past their use-by dates. The items respondents spent the most on was perfume, followed by foundation and mascara. What can you do if you fall into the same category and have a beauty bag full of unused products? Here are some ideas: Chuck away anything past its sell-by date, whether open or used. Products have these dates for a reason. Re-gift unused and sealed items. Just because you wont use it, doesnt mean someone else you know wont. Donate unused items to charity. Many womens shelters up and down the country collect toiletries to give to residents. Dont give in to temptation.

7 Sneaky Ways Bacteria is Getting into Your Beauty Products

Putting that mascara onto your wand and into your eye, then back and forth again, passes germs from your eye to the tube, where they’ll continue to live. Make sure you’re only using mascara for no longer than 3 months, and swirl the brush inside instead of pumping it up and down. You sneezed: It may be innocent, but if you sneeze around your makeup while applying, you’re immediately putting bacteria into any open container. If you feel a sneeze coming on (especially during mascara application, which can entirely ruin all your hard work), walk into another room to avoid sneezing on your products. Reapplying lipstick after eating: This goes for any lip product, but if you immediately reapply your lipstick after eating food, you’re pressing left over food particles into your lips, and into the product itself. Bacteria can then live on the surface of lipstick, or inside the tube of lip gloss, which will eventually be spread onto your lips in the next application. Make sure you fully wipe off any food on your lips and if possible, brush your teeth, before reapplying lip color. Sharing your products: This is especially true for eye makeup because your eyes are most susceptible to getting bacteria in them, but if you’re sharing any beauty products with your friends, you’re immediately putting any of their germs into your products and vice versa. Even if you’re out with your best friend and she forgot to bring her lip gloss in her clutch, don’t share. It never ends well.
