Do you get enough sleep every night? If you are like millions of people around the world, a good night’s sleep might elude you.
There are many reasons why we might have a hard time sleeping including stress, employment, 3 AM feedings, illness, your significant other snoring, weather, noise… the list goes on and on. For me stress is usually the #1 cause for me not sleep well. I’m stressed right now so I have a feeling I won’t be getting much sleep tonight. Sigh…
Multiple studies have found links between poor sleep and Alzheimer’s disease, depression and even weight gain. Further, the number of people averaging just six hours of sleep or less per night is currently on the rise.
Studies have also shown that getting a good night’s sleep is essential to health and overall well-being. Also, as people age, adequate sleep is also important to protecting the youthful look of skin. I did not know that. Who knew your sleeping issues can reap havoc on your skin too.
Did you know that the pillow case that you sleep on can be causing some of your wrinkles? I heard that years ago but figured there was not much I could do about it. I’m not about to sleep sitting up and I can’t sleep on my back no matter how hard I try.
Even they American Academy of Dermatology says that lying your face on a regular pillow every night leads to wrinkles. To prevent this, many experts recommend sleeping on your back. I don’t know about you but I can’t sleep on my back. It’s impossible for me.
There is actually a pillow on the market that was specifically made to prevent your face from developing more wrinkles. It’s called YouthPerfect.
YouthPerfect was designed by a medical doctor and a licensed cosmetologist. This patent-pending pillow case offers the ultimate in sleeping luxury. It was designed for superior rest while as well as to reduce sleep lines that can turn into wrinkles.
I always sleep on the same side of my face. I have noticed that the lines around my mouth are much more deeper on that side compared to the other side. I wonder if my pillow is the cause?
The YouthPerfect pillow case was designed to provide you with restful sleep no matter what position you sleep in. The material used for the pillow case is “frictionless”. It’s made with a high-quality engineered material blend to protect your skin against forming creases.
I was sent a YouthPerfect “kit” ($19.95 value) to review. The kit came with two YouthPerfect pillow cases, a gel cooling eye mask and 3 aromatherapy scents (Vanilla, Eucalyptus and Lavender) as well as 35 diffusion aromatherapy strips.
I was excited to give the YouthPerfect pillow case a try. The moment I opened it up from it’s packaging and felt it I couldn’t wait to rest my head on it.
The pillow case has two sides. One side is very soft and snugly and the other side has a bit of a silk/satin feel to it. I have heard that sleeping on silk or satin pillow cases not only helps prevent creases in your face but it’s also better for your hair. The YouthPerfect pillow case has a silk/satin feel to it, but you can tell there is something a bit more different about it.
I love resting my head on my pillow with the YouthPerfect case on it. I just want to bury my head in it. It feels so nice resting my head on it. It’s also a bit more cooling compared to my regular pillow case.
I watch TV in bed before I go to sleep. That is probably the worse thing you could do in order to get a good night’s sleep. It’s how I unwind after a long day.
In order to see the TV I use a small decorative pillow to prop up my head. It’s not the most comfortable thing but it does the trick.
I have found that since using the YouthPerfect pillow case I watch TV less at night. It’s not the pillow case that causes me to watch TV, it’s ME wanting to rest my head on it that does. I know what is waiting for me (a super comfy pillow) once the TV is turned off. So I find that I watch less TV so I can spend more time with my head on the pillow.
I’m not sure how well the pillow works on sleep creases and wrinkles since I’ve only been using it for a short time. I do know that I don’t wake up with “bed head”. My hair looks good in the morning when I roll out of bed. I attribute that to the silk/satin feel of the pillow case.
Aromatherapy has been know to relax people and in some cases help them get a good night’s sleep. Lavender is a popular scent that people rely on to relax in order to sleep well. I never knew that Eucalyptus and Vanilla had the same effect.
YouthPerfect comes with three generous sized bottles of Lavender, Eucalyptus and Vanilla, plus 26 sheets of paper. You are suppose to put a few drops of your favorite scent on the paper and tuck it inside the pillow. I’m not exactly sure where the strips go. The YouthPerfect pillow case buttons closed around your pillow. I have been tucking the paper stripe in the area just outside the buttons. Sometimes it stays in place, sometimes it falls out.
I’ve tried all three scents. I find the Lavender and Eucalyptus (individually, not together) are very soothing and relaxing. The Vanilla reminds me too much of a cupcake (even my husband agrees). It doesn’t make me relax. It makes me want to EAT! So I won’t be using that one.
The kit came with a gel eye mask. I haven’t used it as of yet. My daughter slept with it a few times (not sure why).
For $19.95 (standard pillow cases – large cases cost a wee bit more) this is a great deal. Just the pillowcases alone are worth every penny. The armomatherapy set is a bonus as far as I’m concerned. There is also a $7.95 shipping fee.

One lucky reader will receive a YouthPerfect Kit (2 standard size pillowcases, gel eye mask, 3 essential oils and strips). Thank you YouthPerfect!
