One big sleeping trend that has been growing rapidly is using a silk pillowcase. Skincare and health gurus alike have extolled the values of sleeping on silk time and time again. This blog will explore the exact reasons why you should start sleeping on silk pillowcases too!
Keeps your skin and hair healthy
Your face and hair have more contact with your pillowcase than any other fabric. So, if you want to keep your skin and hair healthy, your choice in pillowcase is of utmost importance. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help your skin stay healthy and smooth and can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Helps your skin retain moisture
Especially important during winter months, silk helps keep moisture close to your skin. Also, your skin will stay more hydrated. Save money on expensive night creams and try for a silk pillowcase! The investment will pay off in the long run – especially for your face.
Reduces your chemical exposure
Chemicals surround us daily, but this exposure can be reduced while sleeping. Silk is produced from silkworms in captivity. So, they have no predators to defend against and are well taken care of throughout their life. This helps produce a fine silk fiber with little chemical exposure. In contrast, many other fabrics are produced from crops treated with chemicals.
It’s naturally hypoallergenic
Some of silk’s hypoallergenic properties include a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mold, in addition to many other allergens.
It’s a luxury experience
Treat yourself to a sanctuary of your own! Going to sleep on a silk pillowcase can be the perfect way to end your day. There is truly no better feeling then the smooth and luxurious feel of silk against your skin when you go to bed at night. It’s like a massage.
Reduces bed head and split ends
Sleeping on silk will reduce bed head and crazy split ends. The natural properties of silk, with its smooth texture, can help reduce friction on your hair which often causes damage. For your hair, it truly does pay to sleep on a silk pillowcase.
