And just when I thought that I had the craziest travel beautification routine — one that includes mid-flight masking, face misting, tons of balm and essential oil application — one of my friends managed to one-up me. A constant traveler herself, swears by Slip’s silk pillowcase for longer flights. Yep, she brings her own pillowcase on flights. Talk about dedication. I always travel with this eye mask (which now comes in all these pretty colors), but never thought to bring a pillow…
The benefits of sleeping on this silk slice of heaven, as opposed to the one that your airline provides, are less damage to the hair, less face creases and stretching and therefore less fine lines. The smooth surface is also gentle, hypoallergenic and uh, has never been used by anyone else before.
Would you travel with your own pillow (or pillow case)? I certainly would. Seems like a no brainer, right?
