WE all want youthful-looking skin, right?

Gina Stewart, a 51-year-old glamour model from Australia, has revealed her very simple, top tip for youthful skin and it’s a lot easier than you might expect.
The Australian woman is dubbed the “world’s hottest gran” and took to Instagram to reveal how she keeps her youthful looks – and you don’t need to splash the cash on expensive creams.
The glam grandmother asked social media users if they had ever heard of “sleep wrinkles” that develop when we’re in bed.

The model revealed her beauty secrets to her followers, saying: “Who wants youthful skin and a glowing complexion while you sleep?

She continued: “Have you ever thought of trying a pillowcase skin care?
“Making the switch to a silk pillowcase will help to support your nightly skincare routine.
“Silk’s naturally soft fibres are hypoallergenic, moisture wicking and allow skin and hair to glide smoothly across.
“Less breakouts, less redness and irritation and stronger, tangle free hair – need we say more?!
“I sleep on a silk pillowcase every night, and I can no longer put my face or hair onto rough material.
“Silk is also antimicrobial.
“Silk is often used for biomedical applications for its ability to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms.
“This means that your pillowcases are not going to be transferring bacteria onto your face more than say, cotton.
“Also, if you have acne or sensitive skin, the silk pillowcases, with silk’s no friction are going to cause less inflammation.”
Beauty fans are clearly impressed with Gina’s tips, as her Instagram post has racked up hundreds of likes.
Many people have thanked her for the simple but effective advice, with many social media users praising her youthful looks.
One person said: “You look absolutely beautiful.”
Another added: “Always beautiful.”
A third commented: “An absolute natural beauty. Absolutely gorgeous. Stunning. Wow.”
