Reasons why you need a silk pillowcase
HOW DO SILK PILLOWCASES WORK?
Silk Pillowcases have blown up in the beauty world the last few years - but what makes them so good? Read below to find out!
Unlike cotton, silk does not soak up moisture and natural oils from your skin. Silk won't soak up your skincare treatments, meaning your moisturiser and serums will stay on your face rather than your pillow! The result? Smooth, hydrated, supple skin!
Silk is a natural fibre that doesn't clog pores, making the fabric healthy for all skin types. Studies have shown that sleeping on silk has helped prevent pimples and acne.
Silk is great for those who suffer from sensitive or itchy skin. It is hypoallergenic and will repels dust mites commonly found in our beds. Silk resists the growth of nasty mould, fungi and bacteria, making it very hygienic.
Due to its smooth surface, silk is great for haircare. Silk doesn't cause friction, which means despite how much you may move around at night your hair won't get super frizzy and tangled. Your hair will be manageable and smooth after sleeping on a silk pillowcase!
Silk has been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Due to its smooth texture, your skin glides across the surface of the fabric. On the other hand, cotton pillowcases tug and drag on the skin, causing friction. This can have a detrimental effect on your skin.
