A silk pillow case can change your life - starting with your skin and hair! As huge advocates, Stylizen has gone in search of 10 of the best to shop now!
As a beauty writer, I get sent an array of amazing products – from shampoos, skincare and beyond. But recently, I received a product that I have used daily, religiously, on high-rotation which doesn’t come in a container. A silk pillowcase.
Months since it landed on my doorstep, perfectly folded and smooth to the touch, I’ve invested in several more varieties to ensure I never go a night without my silken sleep partner.
Although it may sound precious, I’m simply pragmatic. I’m not getting any younger, and my skin and hair are certainly not getting any more resilient, so by using a silk pillowcase, I am encouraging a smoother, less crumpled complexion and frizz-free hair every day.
Who doesn’t just love face-diving into bed each evening? Personally, I’m a big fan, and there is no guarantee that I don’t end up face first all night. The fact is, that cotton is not great for the complexion as it causes friction on the face. The remedy here is a silk pillow case which allows the skin to slide across the surface, ensuring there is no pulling, chafing or rubbing. Rest assured you wake up with fewer lines in the morning and even fewer long-term!
Silk against your skin won’t encourage moisture loss, so by sleeping on this natural fibre; you are ensuring that any skincare you use before bed, isn’t ending up on your linen.
Like with the skin, cotton can agitate the hair shaft also. But, you guessed it, silk doesn’t have the same effect. It allows the hair to glide across it throughout the night, so there are no snags while you sleep. I have noticed this as in the morning my hair is far, far smoother and I can even get an extra day out of those blow drys. So it’s a true winner!
