I Woke Up Like This: 5 Pillows That Beautify While You Snooze

Beauty sleep is a real thing. Seriously! But while getting eight hours of sleep may be hard, choosing the right pillow is easy. These pillows (and cases) promise to make you more beautiful as you snooze, so it's time to rest even easier.

1. To Keep Hair Frizz-Free

These silk pillowcases won’t disrupt your hair’s cuticle while you sleep so you wake up with smooth and shiny locks.

2. To Prevent Wrinkles

Side sleepers rejoice, these pillows keep your face in a just-right position so you can snooze in peace without worrying about sleep creases—that pesky hard-to-get-rid-of deep wrinkle that forms in that space between your eye and cheek when sleeping on your side.

3. To Preserve Your Hairstyle

If you spent time or money (or both!) at a braid bar, you want to make sure it lasts for as many days as possible. This oddly shaped pillow is the solution. Inspired by the headrests used by Japanese Geishas, it keeps your style secure while still keeping you comfy.

4. To Avoid Breakouts

Face oils, hair product, you name it and it’s probably living on your pillowcase, which can cause breakouts. The best thing you can do is wash them regularly. The second best thing is to choose an organic cotton pillowcase that is less likely than a synthetic one to harbor acne-causing bacteria.
