Friday is National Sleep Day and we’ve got some great beauty products that do all of the work while you’re catching your z's so you can get your sleep, but wake up looking super chic. Here to show us some of them is our beauty expert and friend, Milly Almodovar.
To make that blowout last a few days longer:
SILKE London Hair Wrap $56 : I only wash and style my hair once or twice a week. There’s no need to do it more than that as it can strip your hair of its natural oils. I always sleep with a Silke Hair Wrap to maintain my blowout and shine to my hair. Made of the finest 100% silk, ultra-chic and comfortable to wear, The SILKE Hair Wrap cocoons hair to eliminate the nightly friction that causes breakages, frizz and split ends. What I love about these though is that they are pretty enough that you can even wear them outside. So lots of times after I get my blowout from the salon, I put my hair in pincurls and wear the hair turban on the street. . They come in five gorgeous colors. Did I mention this is how Salma Hayek maintains her blowout too?
A Pillowcase That Stops Acne-
HYGENIE $29.99– Acne is the biggest complaint dermatologist are seeing from the ages of 21-29 now so it’s no longer a teen problem. It’s everyone’s problem. Each day we come in contact with millions of germs that attach to our face, hair, and hands. Even after washing, many of these germs and bacteria remain on our body and face, and when we go to sleep, we transfer those germs and bacteria to our pillowcase. Research has shown that most people wash their pillowcases an average of once per week, which is plenty of time for those germs and bacteria to grow and spread causing acne breakouts and strange odors on the pillow. Introducing the Hygenie Ionic Silver Pillowcase. This pillowcase is infused with positively charged silver ions that kill 99.9% of germs and odor causing bacteria on contact. http://www.amazon.com or http://www.buyhygenie.com

Sio SkinPad Overnight Wrinkle Decollete Smoother $69.95
I see a lot of women that look super young in the face and then when it comes to the decollete it totally reveals their true age. Why do people always forget about the decollete when it comes to aging? The decollete is super thin and doesn’t have many oil glands so it’s not being hydrated. This SkinPad is custom designed to be worn on the chest décolletage. It is worn overnight, during which time it restores the natural, youthful beauty of the décolleté, while also helping prevent future wrinkles from forming. Each SkinPads lasts for 15 uses, and can be rinsed under water or washed with a mild soap to revitalize the adhesive anytime. When silicone is placed on skin, a environment is created between the skin and the silicone. It is this very unique environment that helps skin heal itself. The result is moisture drawn up from lower skin layers to the outside layers (the dermis), causing the dermis to plump, fill in and smooth itself and collagen is created.
