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.

There is talk that my County will move back to a COVID phase 2 again and in our state that means limited restaurant seating, no theaters open and keeping gatherings very small. It also means a potential year 2 of a Mother’s Day in and spring staycations. There are still fun ways to celebrate Mother’s Day from home. Plan a movie night or game night – Mom’s choice.

Sour candy

You can start by gathering the kids to make a great dinner then get creative with snacks and food bars to keep everyone fed and happy as the evening plays out. Whether it is a colorful candy table for movie night or a tablescape with treats at a game table, it is these fun touches Mom loves because it shows thought and is so simple that even the toddlers can help be a part of the set up.

How much better does this spread look than throwing bags of candy on a counter and having a generic evening? For most seasons and Holidays, you can find limited editions of  Sour Punch & Red Vine candies. Having fruity, sour candies means you get a fun color palette. We just finished Easter season so these spring colored-candies are still probably available in most stores and make such pretty tables when you empty the bags into glass dishes. It becomes it’s own ‘Mom’ themed decor.

Send Mom upstairs to pamper herself and while she is out of sight, hand the kids candies, dishes, plants and decor and let them set up the evening spread to elevate your family game or movie night for Mother’s Day.
