FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night

FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night

You probably don’t give much thought to your pillow dander when you fall asleep each night. If you were to be told that you really should change your pillowcase every night for improved skin health and to reduce allergens, you might say ‘fat chance’. Changing pillowcases are a pain! I have some I have to work at getting my pillows into and then those with a tail that hangs off that I awkwardly fold up or bunch up out of sight and call it good enough! Let me tell you about FaceSecret Pillowcases.

FaceSecret Pillowcases are so easy to change so you sleep clean every night. This is because they are designed to fit right over pillows and they will fit no matter the fluff or flatness of your small to king size sleeping pillow. It literally takes seconds to put on. The best part is you can even take it on trips so you can sleep on your FaceSecret rather than a hotel pillow. It includes a carry travel bag.

Appropriately named, FaceSecret pillowcases come in 2 different materials – Satin-Polyester (available in pink, grey and white) and Jersey Cotton (available in grey and white). I have the satin pink and grey for myself and my husband. The quarter inch woven elastic won’t snap  – and has its elastic pull-tie drawstring to ensure that great fit. I thought about older parents and grandparents who may have a hard time shoving pillows into pillowcases and how great this would be for them.

I also learned in my research about FaceSecret pillowcases and their purpose that Satin-Polyester is proven to be essential for the healthy skin and helps with anti-aging (keeps skin smooth on pillowcase and protects delicate areas around face) and to prevent bead head (allows hair to glide rather than tug and damage hair). FaceSecret actually helps the health of your skin and hair as well as become a great barrier to allergens.

If it makes you feel better to make a change to eliminate the haven for dust mites, bed bugs, fungus, dirt, oil, bacteria and more from your standard pillow case habits, FaceSecret is the easiest change you can make. Washing it is easy and it makes a great gift for Mom this Mother’s Day. It is a small business and made in America. Visit FaceSecret to order yours today.

Get the Curls You Want with Bombay Hair 32 Rose Gold Wand

Get the Curls You Want with Bombay Hair 32 Rose Gold Wand

I have typically had a hard time getting my hair to hold a curl. I began asking friends their tricks and reading product reviews to see what is working for others and always assumed perhaps I need a smaller wand to try tighter curls. That did not work well. I finally realized that I needed the right spray, wand size and heat. This 32 Rose Gold Wand  from Bombay Hair gets my curls exactly how I want them – just a wave in the end if I take my stylists recommendations on how to hold and curl with it. You can get the curls you want with a few tips and the right hair tool.

Bombay Hair

I hold top sections of my hair up in clips and start with the underneath section. I use large sections and give it a quick spritz with a heat spray first. I alternate the direction I curl – over and under so I get that random wave throughout.

I even found a tip in a YouTube video of how to tilt the curling wand up and away on the front hairs to better frame my face. It worked out well. What I love about this particular curling wand from Bombay Hair is how quickly it heats up. I curl at 370 degrees. It does come with a heat glove to protect your hand, but I just find it easier to not wear one so I have the cool tip curling wand option.

On an average day I am a jeans and ponytail Mom. It is just easier on days I do not have time to put into my hair. I always thought that styling my hair was better if I had more hours in my day. The reality is that once I got the curling routine down with this wand, I can get through my hair sections quickly, run my fingers through it all and go. No excuses, I do have time to style my hair.

Letting the curls fall at my face or pulling the back is both a great look that gives my hair so much body and style. The Bombay Hair curling wand makes it possible to master salon-style from the comfort of my own home.

Evolved By Nature: Soaps and Hand Sanitizer that won’t dry out your skin

Evolved by Nature: Soaps and Hand Sanitizer that won't dry out your skin

Evolved By Nature is not just another ‘natural soap’ product. It is both natural and the first ever company to make safe, green hand sanitizer out of natural silk. The Activated Silk™, is a protein that enhances skin’s barrier function and moisturizes hands with every use. No chemicals necessary! It works!

We finally brought the elementary kids back to school. The High School where I normally work is not open for a few more weeks, so I have been working at the Elementary school for now. We sanitize our hands so many times a day. Like you, my hands would get so dry. All staff seems to complain the same about our dried out hands.

I brought my Evolved By Nature Gel Hand Sanitizer to our staff room and now some girls want me to hide it so it doesn’t disappear so fast. I am not hiding it from anyone, but I use it all day myself and it is a huge difference over using the standard sanitizers I was used to. Finally, hand sanitizer that won’t dry out your skin!

I love that a little goes a long way. About 1/2 a pump is plenty for my hands. The Hand Therapy is a great touch at the end of my shift once I get hone after all that hand washing and sanitizing. I highly recommend having both the Evolved By Nature Hand Sanitizer and Hand Therapy available in your day for hands that do not crack or dry out. Even in this Pacific Northwest winter, my hands are doing very well.

Evolved By Nature products go above and beyond FDA standards and are a Mass. company right here in the US. Their products are great for all skin types and stages of life. Visit the Evolved By Nature website to learn more and shop for your ‘better’ hand sanitizer (my opinion)!


What You Can Expect from Laser Express Laser Cosmetic Clinic

What You Can Expect from Laser Express Laser Cosmetic Clinic

Cosmetic laser treatments are proof that beauty doesn’t always have to hurt. Procedures that reduce the wrinkles, remove blemishes and signs of aging, or simply refresh the skin, are painless. When used correctly, these procedures can lead to a better appearance and make you look and feel younger.

Some of the most widespread problems treated by this technology as seen on include acne, scars, wrinkles, spots, darkening of the epidermis, dark eye circles, sun damage, and excessive hair. Laser treatments can reduce or even cut many of these problems.

Different Equipment for Different Conditions

You can use cosmetic laser procedures on many different parts of the face and body. You are probably tired of being uncomfortable because of those scars from past surgeries. Or you want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles that have appeared around the area of your eyes. In any of these cases, this method of using light could be right for you.

The good thing about laser treatments is that there are special devices that treat various skin problems. The primary division is into ablative and non-ablative devices, which differ in action. The first devices vaporize the top layers of damaged skin, working well for superficial skin issues.

Non-ablative lasers go deeper into the epidermis without damaging the skin. These are great for anti-aging treatments and skin tightening. CO2 tools, which belongs to this group of lasers, are excellent for treating superficial scars.

These two groups of lasers can be further divided into subgroups, depending on the color (wavelength) they emit. In principle, all these machines cause skin tightening. Directed rays create micro lesions on the surface that stimulate collagen production.

No Pain

The laser’s light is so powerful that it painlessly and with no chemistry erases pimples, acne, and other skin issues. After the action of the laser, the goat begins to create more new, healthy cells. Also, larger amounts of collagen are secreted in the epidermis, making the skin surface more beautiful and taut.

Although these rays in some way damage the skin (although it is for good causes), you will not even feel it because it happens on a microscopic level. These procedures work by shining light of a specific color onto the affected area, which provokes specific reactions.

For example, red and blue light causes the skin to produce surface pigment. Diode treatments generate very high levels of energy that boost collagen production. It will work well for skin tightening and restoring its elasticity.

Just ensure that your doctor has the equipment necessary to perform the laser treatments. This technology has continued to progress over the years, so it’s likely that the chosen clinic must have up-to-date and powerful machines. For more information on how this equipment works, go here.

No Need for Recovery


Another benefit of laser cosmetic clinic procedures is that they can be done on an outpatient basis. It means that you can go home the same day after the treatment. These procedures usually don’t last long but need to be repeated several times or periodically to make the results last longer.

People opted for laser procedures should do them only in certified clinics and laser centers. The practitioner must also be professional and know the equipment they’re working with. Side effects are rare, which makes these treatments safe.

But you must keep in mind that inconveniences like burning of the tissue, scarring, and infections can happen. That’s why you need an expert by your side. You can avoid these risks if you follow the pre and post-treatment instructions that the doctor gave you.

Best Value for Money

The cost of laser procedures depends on the type and the number of repeated treatments. In most cases, patients can find very reasonable rates when they go to reputable clinics and medical centers. They can get discounts or take part in loyalty programs to get an acceptable price.

Even when you have to pay the full amount upfront for the treatment, the benefits of these procedures outweigh the cost. That includes the convenience of having healthy and youthful skin and the joy of not covering yourself from head to toe and wearing heavy makeup.
