Sleep deprivation can be education, work or postpartum related. The “after baby” related sleep deprivation is the worst of them all. Sleep is extremely important for health and beauty. Adequate regular sleep patterns foster an environment that encourages the anterior pituitary gland to do its job and secrete the human growth hormone which is responsible for keeping us looking and feeling younger.
Human growth hormone is released at night with a major surge occurring about an hour after the onset of sleep. Adequate and undisturbed regular sleep patterns can raise your level of growth hormones in the body and can keep you looking fresher / healthier everyday. Sleeping on satin pillows, wearing black-out eye masks, using black-out curtains are some of the things you can do to build a peaceful and perfect environment for inducing that deep sleep which is needed to raise the level of HGH in our body.

Nights in White Satin – Savvy Sleepers Satin Pillow Case Review
Satin, which has been used by many glamorous Hollywood actresses for generations, is also one of the simplest beauty products to adopt. The fact that you don’t have to slather or massage anything on your face and hair makes it an easier, less time consuming, simpler, longer-lasting (no running out of product here) and more affordable compared to all the other beauty products out there. Satin is built to be smoother and less abrasive (I had textiles as a major in bachelors. If you are a science geek then you can read all about satin here) so it’s pretty much gentler on your skin and hair. If you can imagine what over-teasing can do to your hair or over-use of harsh exfoliants can do to your skin then you can see why satin based surfaces can be better for your skin and hair. Satin also gives you a luxurious and smooth platform that might help you get those long hours of undisturbed regular sleep needed to increase your HGH production.
Dale, the lovely fashion blogger @ savvyspice.com recently launched her new Savvy Sleepers unisex luxury satin pillow case collection centered around the idea of getting people to sleep better so they can wake up to better skin and hair everyday. She sent me one of her satin pillow cases to enjoy and I wanted to show my support to her by posting a review on it here. The lovely slumber party chic meets sleeping beauty themed collection is all about providing a luxurious base for a sleep-filled dreamy night fit for a princess. The product came housed in a beautiful package with a fun slumber-party themed postcard signed by Dale, a fact sheet with instructions on how to use the pillow, a “thank you” note and two mints (how cute is that?). The colors fall into neutral/basic groups and the finish is semi-matte with a light sheen so it can be appealing to both men as well as women. The semi-matte non-slippery surface not only prevents your head from slipping off the pillow case but also looks sophisticated without that overly shiny look. The pillow case also has this cute and nifty built-in hidden pocket where you can keep your ear plugs, mints, love notes, lavender vials, hair ties, head phones, lip balm etc. Watch the Savvy Sleepers “Behind the scenes” photo shoot below for more details on the company and their product –
Overall, I think people look better when they follow a routine that’s centered around good sleep, clean water, heathy diet, healthy relationships and less stress in their life. Skincare is just a good added support. The savvy sleeper collection is all about bonding with friends, having fun and sleeping better so you can kick off that stress a bit and start pampering yourself. Dale is a very committed, caring and passionate person which shows through every one of her blog posts and everything she does. I would definitely buy this product from her in the future and recommend it to everyone I know. If you are interested in learning more about Dale and her products then please do head over to her blog www.savvyspice.com or her company website www.savvysleepers.com. What do you think about the pillow case? Would you try it? What do you think about the cute built-in hidden pockets? Please leave your comments below. Make good friends, have fun and sleep better. 🙂
