The ‘Case’ for the Silk Pillowcase || Why You Need to Change

It may sound a little decadent and bourgeois but we promise you there is a great reason to switch your cotton pillowcase to a silk one!Sleep may be great for your skin but your traditional pillowcase isn’t.Although sleep is a time when the skin rejuvenates itself, the sleep lines you repeatedly have, due to repeated sleep patterns actually weaken and possibly even breakdown the collagen in your skin, thus depleting skin elasticity.

It may be difficult to change your sleeping patterns, but replacing your cotton pillowcase with a silk one could help.Firstly, cotton material sucks moisture away from your skin which exaggerates wrinkles and fine lines.Silk on the other hand doesn’t absorb moisture at all so that’s a bit of help.

Secondly, silk provides a smooth surface for your skin, unlike cotton which can tug and scrunch up your face and cause sleep lines to appear.The frictionless surface means your skin and hair will glide across it, causing less sleep lines and thus wrinkles.An added bonus is a great hair day, the smooth, friction-less surface fights frizz and bed head too! Silk not in your budget ?Satin will do…
