Don’t we all wish to sleep luxuriously? Look no further than your own pillow. Regular cotton pillowcases can leave you with frizzy hair and irritated skin, making it quite easy to feel sluggish and less-than excited to start the day. Enter the silk pillowcase: soft, smooth and packed with various beauty benefits. Sounds too good to be true? Try out the Sleek Silk Pillowcase, Braes Satin Pillow Case and Bless Satin Pillowcase and see for yourself! Leave behind the bed head and wrinkles – here are 5 benefits of a silk pillowcase.
Prevents Frizzy Hair
Friction created from regular pillowcases means you will be more likely to wake up with frizzy, tangled hair – damaging hair follicles and increased shedding. Due to silk’s super smooth texture, hair will seamlessly glide over it, allowing you to avoid the mess that is morning bed head.
Keeps Skin Hydrated
A silk pillowcase also absorbs less moisture than other fabrics, meaning it won’t drain your skin of its natural hydration. Its tightly woven fibres keep oil and moisture out, guaranteeing that your nighttime skincare routine stays on your face without transferring onto the pillow. Pro Tip – use a silk pillowcase regularly for drier skin and especially during the colder winter months.
Prevents Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Studies show that the friction from tossing and turning in bed causes creases in the skin, contributing to fine lines and wrinkles. Fear not, for there is a solution! Your skin against silk creates less tension and will not tug or disrupt your skin elasticity. Moreover, silk amino acids (an ingredient found in many moisturizers and body lotions) regenerate the skin, so you can wake up feeling young and refreshed.
Are you a hot or sweaty sleeper? Believe it or not, silk also regulates heat, helping you maintain the optimal body temperature and keep you cool during those hot summer nights. Magically, a silk pillowcase can retain heat as well, making it equally perfect for when it’s a little colder.
Silk fibres are naturally resistant to dust mites and mould. The breathability of a silk pillowcase reduces dander, dust and other common household allergens. Similarly, the lack of harsh chemicals and toxins in a silk pillowcase makes your skin less susceptible to rashes and irritation. It’s a win-win!
