U.S. Cotton Urges Women to Sleep Naked

MTSleepNakedPledgeMain72.jpg

With a play on words, U.S. Cotton, with help from Marcus Thomas, is urging women to sleep naked. Well, actually facially naked as in no make up. As in it's a campaign to urge women to remove their make up before they go to bed. Apparently, 50 percent of women don't remove make up at night and of those who do, 80 percent do it incorrectly which is said to result in irritation, acne, eye infections and premature aging.

For U.S. Cotton's Swisspers health and beauty line, Marcus Thomas developed a campaign which asks celebrities and popular beauty bloggers to show their faces make up free. Viewers can vote their favorite with a $10,000 prize being awarded to the winner's charity of choice.

During a nationwide Twittter event (hashtags #sleepnaked #swisspers) the night of October 17, actress Malika Haqq, recording artist Melissa Gorga, beauty/humor blogger Jodie Rivera (aka VenetianPrincess, one of YouTube's top beauty channels) and Hollywood makeup artist turned beauty blogger Kandee Johnson each unveiled their makeup-free photo after a teaser week of promising their followers a revealing photo of their upcoming participation in the unexplained "National Sleep Naked Night." Followers can vote for their favorite, up until November 9, at facebook.com/SwisspersCotton.

Hmm. So this is where the Backstreet Boys have been. Trapped inside a giant Old Navy boom box. The fashion brand has tapped the boy (man?) band to tout a new line of Rockstar skinny jeans with "more stretch" to fit "more people." Great, CP+B. Now even more fat people can force jeans over their gigantic asses falsely thinking they are skinny because they are basically wearing a stretch pants version of skinny jeans.
