Hollywood Silk Solution Pillowcase

If you’ve been reading my articles, you know that for years I’ve been telling you to ALWAYS sleep on a silk satin (charrmeuse) pillowcase. Unlike other fabrics that can tug at your skin creating wrinkles and sleep creases, pure silk allows your face to glide smoothly as you move in your sleep. The Hollywood Silk Solution Pillowcase is a great gift for all the beauty lovers on your list. It’s made from mulberry silk on one side, cotton on the underside, has a zipper closure, is available in a few colors, and is machine washable.  An added bonus is that sleeping on silk preserves hair styles and blow-outs too. Sweet dreams!  $45.
