Is It True That Silk Pillowcases Are Better for Your Skin?
In these modern times, there’s been a recent shift towards healthy eating habits and what type of beauty products we put on our skin. However, there hasn’t been much of a focus on what we sleep on - until now.
Satin silk pillowcases are fast becoming the trend of the day for many beauty enthusiasts. While the concept has been around for a long time (after all, many women with curly or textured hair have been wrapping their hair in silk before bedtime for centuries), silk pillowcases are certainly gaining in popularity. If you’re someone who hasn’t put much thought into your bedding until now, Silk World is here to help you change that.
Before you take the plunge, let’s discuss the many benefits of silk pillowcases.
Say goodbye to bed hair
If you haven’t invested in a silk pillowcase, there’s no better time than now. For one, the smooth texture of silk can prevent hair breakage and frizz caused by friction when tossing and turning at night. Secondly, silk is naturally hypoallergenic, so silk pillowcases prevent buildup of dust mites, fungus, mould, and other allergens. What’s more, if you like sleeping on the cold side of your pillow, good news: silk is a good heat regulator, which means you won’t need to flip over your pillow every 20 minutes to the cold side.
Benefits of satin silk pillowcases for your skin
While there are many benefits to silk pillowcases for your hair and health, the main draw is the potential skin benefits. According to skincare enthusiasts, sleeping on delicate silk offers the following advantages:
- Sleeping on silk is said to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face, as opposed to sleeping on rougher material, like cotton
- Silk fabric absorbs less moisture than cotton, so any moisturiser or serum you put on your face before bed will penetrate into your skin. This leaves your skin hydrated for longer.
- Silk is said to help prevent acne due to its antimicrobial properties
The bottom line? Yes, silk pillowcases can improve skin and hair, prevent fine lines and wrinkles, and deliver smoother hair every morning.
