SilkySILK Pillowcases are the Skin care product you never knew you needed
Silk can be beneficial for your skin and hair. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help your skin stay healthy and smooth and can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. If you’re only going to invest in one piece of silk bedding to start with, the silk pillowcase provides a lot of benefit for the cost.
Most importantly, it has been proven that silk prevents ageing! Silk contains a natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. Studies have shown that amino acids can counter the effects of ageing, especially in the facial skin and can help calm the nervous system. Silk also contains natural cellular albumen, which helps speed up metabolism of skin cells – thus helping to reduce signs of aging.
Unlike cotton (which is an absorbent fiber and draws moisture), silk will not absorb natural moisture from your face and hair, or facial beauty creams while you sleep. It therefore allows for more efficient use of night creams, providing better skin hydration which a clearer skin as the end result.
If you wake up with visible creases on your face from your regular pillow, then this is another reason to try a silk alternative. Silk pillowcases can leave you with less puffy skin in the morning and may help smooth those wrinkles that form overnight. They don't pull or crease your skin while you sleep and they feel smooth and soft. Silk pillowcases help maintain the texture of your skin over time, with no effort at all!
3. Moisturising skin
I know what you may be thinking – how can a pillowcase moisturise my skin? Well they work by being less absorbent than your regular pillow, meaning that your night creams or oils will soak into your skin and not into your pillow. This is a great tip for those of us with dry, dehydrated skin!
4. Reduce skin irritation
Specific types of silk have antimicrobial properties which doesn't irritate sensitive skin conditions.
