What are the benefits of Silk?
Why Choose Silk?
Hands up if you invest in a beauty regime before bed. Cleansing, toning, and moisturising are all part of our bedtime routines. But, did you know that sleeping on silk has numerous benefits that will help you look and feel fresh and rejuvenated in the morning?
Keeps Skin Hydrated
Unlike cotton, which is porous, silk's super-smooth texture means it absorbs less moisture from your skin. This means your skin stays nice and hydrated because it isn't sucking out the moisture. A hydrated complexion looks more plump and youthful. It also helps improve skin elasticity which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Keeping your complexion hydrated will leave you glowing and feeling great.
Keeps Hair Smooth
Women with curly and textured hair have been sleeping on silk for years. When you sleep on silk, your hair glides over the pillowcase without any tugging or snagging. This means you are more likely to wake up without the dreaded bed head. With fewer tangles or frizz, you can just get up and go in the morning.
Keeps Hair Healthy
As well as keeping your skin hydrated, silk also keeps your hair hydrated. Traditional cotton pillowcases will absorb moisture, whereas a luxury silk pillowcase will leave the moisture where it needs to be. It's an absolute game-changer, especially if you suffer from dry ends or dry scalp.
Keeps Wrinkles Reduced
We kid you not. Silk keeps you looking younger. When you sleep, you toss and turn, and this can cause friction between the pillow and your face. The silky smooth surface of silk means no friction resulting in less skin tugging, which causes wrinkles. You'll have less need for lotions and potions leaving more time for sleep.
Keeps Temperature Regulated
As well as it literally providing you with beauty sleep, silk can also help you sleep sounder. Silk fibres are naturally temperature regulating, making it a comfortable fabric to have close to your skin. When it's cold, silk's low conductivity means the fibres create a thin layer of insulation that keeps you nice and cosy and warm.
And remember, silk is a natural fibre, so it's breathable, which helps you regulate your body temperature. You will sleep better and wake up feeling amazing.
