Kelly Ripa Has Used This Anti-Aging Trick for the Last 6 Years


It works while you sleep.

Kelly Ripa is ebullient, joyful, and a Hollywood multi-threat at 50 years old, so you know she’s picked up countless beauty tricks along the way. One such secret emerged this week via Ripa’s Instagram: While promoting her partnership with supplement brand Persona, Ripa broke down her top three beauty tips for staying in such great shape. They number the aforementioned supplements, sunscreen, and the kicker, a satin pillowcase.

She didn’t mention exactly which pillowcase she uses, but we did a little digging and found a 2015 “Live with Kelly and Ryan” clip where she tells Jon Hamm about first discovering the wonders of a silk pillowcase. “I sleep on a silk pillowcase because when I first cut my hair, I’d wake up in the morning with crazy bedhead all over the place,” she said. “And Diane D’Agostino, my hairstylist, said, you’ve got to get a silk pillowcase because it’ll keep your hair under control and your face won’t wrinkle.”

Apparently the advice panned out, because six years later and her love for the trick is still going strong (and clearly working). On Amazon, there are a number of contenders for an excellent silk pillowcase, but three great options under $50 have cumulatively earned nearly 43,000 five-star ratings — wild times.

Coming in hot with over 17,000 five-star ratings, the Zimasilk 100 Percent Mulberry Silk Pillowcase earns raves specifically for its heavenly effect on wrinkles. An enthusiastic shopper said they “sigh and smile contentedly” into their pillow at least 12 times a night because it feels so good, and the improvement it has on fine lines is extreme. “You will apologize to your poor face constantly for all the years you dragged it along a scratchy cotton surface all night long,” they wrote. “Don’t blame yourself. You didn’t know.”
