Silk not only looks and feels luxurious, but it has real benefits for your Skin and Hair.
Anti Bed Head
Clinical studies have shown that those who slept on silk pillowcases showed a reduction in spots and acne compared to those who slept on cotton cases.
Silk is a kinder and cleaner surface for cradling your cheek.
Silk pillowcases/face masks are gentler on the skin of people with acne or sensitive skin than rough cotton pillowcases/facemasks.
The friction from cotton on pimple-prone skin can create more inflammation, making acne worse.
Cotton also sops up the natural oil and bacteria from your face and hair, and that grime accumulates on your pillowcase night after night, creating a petri dish out of your pillow.
Silk pillowcases/face masks absorb less of the moisture and dirt and thus may be a better choice for people with acne.
This is especially true for people who sleep on their sides or stomach.
Unlike cotton silk, pillowcase won't soak up your night/day creams and oils, leaving them to work their magic.
The beautiful slip of silk also means that the material won't pull or tug at your skin which is especially essential when sleeping.
Unlike cotton pillows silk won't form creases in the skin, leaving you with wrinkles in the morning.
Silk is also fabulous for regulating temperature, A blessing for many women going through the menopause.
Silk's frictionless surface helps to mitigate damage to the hair; the material absorbs less moisture from the hair and will help to reduce frizz and help the hair to not knot whists sleeping.
Due to its slip, the hair will experience less tugging and friction.
Silk is especially beneficial for those with sensitive hair or damage. But it is also a great tool to prevent damage for those wearing hair extensions or experiencing new hair growth due to the reduced friction.
And it may prolong the sleek look of a blowout or prevent snags.
Silk case will also leech less moisture from the hair helping tp keep.
