Also congratulations on your By Dariia Day Launch!
Thank you! So 4 months ago I launched Silk Pillowcases which are dedicated to beauty!
I am personally in love with this product, I have very sensitive skin myself and when I first went to Vietnam, one lady recommended me to sleep on silk, and I fell in love with it, and I just had to create the best possible version of it to share with my clients!
The kind of silk that I’m using for the pillowcases has been a beauty secret for about a thousand years in Asia, and it's amazing. The idea is that we usually sleep on cotton, which has a very rough surface. It breaks our hair, and we wake up with a bed head. Silk also takes less of the moisture out of our skin. What we sleep on really affects our skin. I’ve been working on it for the past 2.5 years, so it's my new baby, and it’s helped me a lot.
I’ve been using one for the past 4 years, and a while ago I left mine in a hotel in Argentina and the only place I could find the same silk was on Amazon but it was mostly satin not silk, and I was disappointed with everything. So I started asking people in Paris if they sleep on silk? They said no but were very excited to do so! So, I was like I have to do it, I have to!
Tell me more!
So first, it's 100% natural. When we were traveling to 6 different countries to find the best quality, we decided to choose China, because that’s where silk originated from. It was their secret for more than 2,000 years. Then we found a manufacturer who makes traditional silk of the best quality. We worked on this special weave and to develop the fabric that is the best for our beauty, with no toxins and any allergens. Silk is very fragile, so I wanted to make the pillowcase durable so that you can wash the pillowcases in the washing machine, because everybody is busy in their life. We made it from very luxurious weight of 25 momme, which is very unique and precious.
How have you been able to balance creating your own company and still working as a makeup artist?
I love my job, and I love to work and be active, so doing both I feel finally fulfilled :)
