Getting a good night's rest is so important for our health!
Sleep is key to your health and trim journey!

I love crawling into fresh sheets, but knowing they are healthy for me, and knowing that I don't have my mouth, eyes, and nose breathing in toxic chemicals is even better.
Buying a higher-quality sheet that is organic and super silky soft is worth it to me. Not only does it keep me healthy, but it is also a good reminder that I need to wash my face before bed to keep my pillowcase clean.
Having a clean face and breathable, temperature-controlled, silky-soft sheets helps me sleep soundly. If nothing else went right that day, at least I can look forward to a nice bed and good sleep!
Not only is it good for my health, but it's good for my skin because it's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and hypoallergenic. It combats backne and acne!
It's also good for my hair and if you have long, curly hair, you need a silk pillowcase to preserve your curls and combat frizz and dryness.
