The Benefits of Using a SILK PILLOWCASE
A great tip when travelling – and of course when you are at home too – is to always use a pure silk pillowcase on your pillow whenever you lie down to sleep, even on a plane.
There are several reasons why a silk pillowcase is such a good idea…
Healthier for your facial skin
When you think about it, your face has more contact with your pillowcase than any other fabric, making your choice of pillowcase material especially important. A silk pillowcase will help to keep yo
ur face looking refreshed, healthy and glowing.
Preventing acne outbreaks
Acne outbreaks can be brought on by the fibers in your pillow and your regular pillowcase. The silk pillowcase will stop those fibers coming into contact with your skin.
Helps your skin retain moisture
This is because silk helps keep moisture close to your skin so your skin will stay more hydrated and retain its natural moisture. You might even find you need to use even less Simply Face Oil!
Helps to reduce your skin’s chemical exposure
Chemicals are of course constantly a risk. The good news is that silk is produced from domesticated silkworms that are bred and raised in captivity. They have no predators to defend against and are pampered throughout their life, helping to produce a fine silk fiber with little chemical exposure. By contrast, many fabrics on the marketplace are produced from chemically intensive crops that require pesticides, herbicides and other chemical treatments before being made into bed linen.
Silk is naturally hypoallergenic
Some of silk’s hypoallergenic properties include a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mold – and this is in addition to many other allergens.
Silk has great benefits for your skin
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase can help your skin stay healthy and smooth, even reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
Silk has helpful benefits for your hair too
Reduce that “bed head” look and split ends. Silk provides free range for your hair to move smoothly as you sleep, unlike cotton that may tangle your hair and cause unsightly dents when you wake up. No more waking up in the morning and having hair that looks all over the place. Sleeping on luxury silk pillowcases will help keep that bed head under control. The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface, can help reduce all friction on your hair which often causes damage such as spilt ends. Sleeping on silk will hep to keep your hair shiny - and silky -and will even extend the life of a blow dry or blowout by a day or two.
It is worth the sacrifice
Obviously, treating yourself to a silk pillowcase is not an inexpensive purchase but think about it as an investment – if you can lay your head to rest at night on a silk pillowcase, it is the perfect way to end your day.
It is like having a massage every night – and a silk pillowcase is not just recommended for women, men can benefit too!
