If you’re considering investing in Botox injections to transform your face or plastic surgery, it might be better to sleep on the problem. Seriously – researchers have developed a copper oxide pillow case, designed to iron out lines and crow’s feet. In tests, those who used it for only four weeks had fewer wrinkles and lines than those with conventional bedding, the manufacturers say. Also copper is antimicrobial. Putting copper in fabrics or on surfaces has been shown to reduce bacteria and it may help with acne conditions and help to fight off bacteria.
Jeffrey Gabbay is the owner of the Cupron company, which used its expertise in making copper medical dressings to develop the pillow case along with a range of other copper sleep accessories including gloves and eye shields. He said: ‘The surgeon doing our wound-healing trial remarked how an increase in collagen was helping to heal wounds. ‘We wondered if it might work on fixing wrinkles and lines on the face. ‘So we had some copper woven pillows made up and noticed that over a few days of lying on a copper pillow lines on the face started to soften.’ Clinical trials, supervised by a dermatologist, were carried out on 57 volunteers for four weeks. The volunteers were given either an anti-wrinkle pillow, which feels no different from normal fabric, or a similar conventional pillow.
By the end of the trial, those sleeping on copper pillows were statistically more likely to have experienced a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. Mr Gabbay, a textile scientist who runs his firm from Israel, said: ‘It has been the most fantastic discovery. ‘The fabric has an impact on all lines but is best at ironing out the finer lines.’ The researchers believe that moisture from the skin releases copper ions - charged atoms - from the pillow cases which stimulate the production of collagen below the surface of the skin.
So far the company has sold about 10,000 pillow cases on line in the U.S. Personally, I think there are no short cuts to taking care of your skin. Get the basics down first – a healthy diet, a simple skin regiment and excercise regulary. Considering a copper pillow to transform your skin would probably help some – but more effort on your part will even be better to make a substancial difference in the appearance of your skin.
