Loved and adored by many, nothing feels gentler against the skin or softer than pure silk. A natural protein fibre produced by silkworms, why is silk so favoured by women that care about their appearance and what are the secrets of the Silkskin silk pillowcase that we hear so many referring to?
If you are new to the power and richness of pure silk, then here are just a few of the reasons why sleeping on a silk pillowcase is the norm for many who want to look lush all of the time.
Silk and your skin
You may not realise it but sleeping on a pillowcase made of anything other than silk can result in fine ‘sleep lines’ being left on your face. After time, as these present themselves on a daily basis, they begin to take hold and before you know it, those small lines have become ingrained in your skin and are very difficult to eradicate. This is not the case if you sleep on a silk pillowcase as the satin feel of the silk means that your face slides across the pillow, rather than being stuck in one place as you sleep. The result? Sleep lines are banished and you are left with skin that looks fantastic, meaning you can ban the Botox!
As well as getting rid of fine lines, pillowcases made from cotton or other fibres soak up the moisture from your face; no matter what expensive face creams you apply before you curl up to sleep, the fabric of your pillowcase will act like a sponge, removing it from your face. In fact, you are wasting money as no matter how much cream you apply, your face will become drier. By substituting your pillowcase for one made from pure silk, your skin will retain moisture – both natural and that applied by you, and look much fresher and softer. Combine this with a lavender filled eye mask and you have the secret to great skin and a good night’s sleep!
Silk and your hair
In the same way, pillowcases made from cotton soak up the moisture from your hair. If your hair is already dry (and maybe curly) and even worse, long, you may wake up in the morning with something resembling a crushed bird’s nest on your head! Why waste time and money on straightening and adding product to your hair when your pillowcase destroys all of your efforts? Opt for a silk pillowcase and your hair will return to being shiny and smooth with far less knots and tangles.
If you style your hair, it will also last longer when sleeping on silk. Whether your set your hair with rollers or blow-dry, the effect will last much longer and your hair will have far more bounce and life. Save having to wash and style your hair daily by investing in a pure silk pillowcase and see the difference for yourself. Your hair should stay looking good for several days rather than just 24hrs and less washing means healthier hear with less natural oils removed by shampooing.
