In the world obsessed with hi-tech gadgets beauty industry is delivering some of the most cutting-edge innovations. Some products indeed sound like something from a sci-fi novel but believe you me - the best of them work the kind of magic one never thought possible outside of the dermatologist's office.
One such innovation is Illuminage Copper Pillowcase - a result of 10 years' research by a Biotech company Cupron. The intelligent fabric is synthesized out of copper and fused with polyester to produce a molecularly active fibers that transfer copper ions onto your skin upon contact for continuous nightly rejuvenating treatment.
All you have to do is sleep (or just lay there) and your copper pillowcase does the rest. And when you wake you are facing the world with the glowing, rested face! (and if you stick with it - less wrinkled face as well) Sounds tempting - and it should be! 'cause it works!
The longer one sleeps on the copper pillowcase the more effective the result - the effect takes hold over time. I have been devotee of this lo-tech beauty gadget from 2016 and can really see the difference now between resting my face on this 100% Cupron copper oxyde polyester and any other ordinary fabric pillowcase. The trick for me is to make sure you have a few to be able to continuously sleep on one while you are washing the other and I have one firmly planted inside my carry-on for travel. Since I have started sleeping on it I noticed visible improvement to:
My skin tone – the overall complexion is more even and healthier looking skin.
I have sensitive skin so this pillowcase really takes gentle care of my face while I’m passed out – so no more ‘red face’ mornings and itchy patches that occur sometime from reactions with regular harsher fabric.
Even though I don’t supper from breakouts – I haven’t had an occasional ‘drown-up pimple’ since I went onto the copper pillowcase.
My slight ‘crow’s feet’ decreased and almost disappeared which I really think has been a partial benefit from this wonderful product. (I do use facial laser and every other beauty gadget imaginable so the grand total of my look is the effect of all of them)
The packaging carries the following information: Iluminage’s Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase With Copper Oxide is clinically proven to change the look of your skin in just four weeks, by:
reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and lack of smoothness; and
improving skin’s overall appearance.
There is published literature on the studies of copper ions’ effect on the skin and it is proven to be effective to reduce wrinkles, improve overall appearance of the skin and complexion as well as stimulate production of elastine which is prime component of young skin and decreases tragically with age.
Most importantly I see no excuse NOT to use something so readily available and affordable that has such great benefits to your health and beauty. A regular ‘designer’ pillowcase will average about the same if not more $$$ and give your face a harsh treatment of rubbing your face against a napkin. Copper pillowcase is amazing to the touch and manages to actively help your looks while you are off to the dreamworld. I’d say it’s a win-win!
