Silk Pillowcase Love

It is well known that I love my beauty sleep, drinking a lot of water and staying healthy. Sleeping well means everything to me. I love to sleep in big beds, surrounded by a lot of pillows, I recently found out that silk pillow cases are the best for sleeping well and for your hair and face. Ever since I started using silk pillowcases, my facial skin feels so different. I hardly break out. I know most of us opt for a standard cotton pillowcase but the ultimate nighttime beauty-must is, in fact, a silk pillowcase. Backed up by scientific studies, researchers have found that sleeping on a silk pillowcase actually does wonders. Considering we spend between 6-8 hours with our pillows every night, the research points to the silk pillowcase as a secret savior.

Here are my top reasons why you should switch to a silk pillowcase

Silk Pillowcases Help With Skin Issues

Researchers at a top University have conducted studies into how silk pillowcases help patients with  chronic inflammatory skin disease .Research found that cotton was an irritant to those suffering from the disease due to its short, rough fibres and the way they move across the skin. Silk, on the other hand, has much smoother fibres creating less friction and calming any skin conditions. Another benefit is that silk doesn’t absorb the natural moisture from our skin. Cotton, however, does the opposite; drawing much needed moisture and with us spending a vast amount of our time in bed, this can have a detrimental effect on our face. As silk doesn’t draw any moisture, it therefore allows for more efficient use of night creams, providing better skin hydration with clearer skin as the end result.

Silk Pillowcases Help With Anti-aging

Do you ever find yourself waking up with annoying sleep creases on your face? Well this is a due to the cotton pillowcase causing your skin to mark and ultimately deepen wrinkles. Switch to silk and you will dramatically reduce morning crease-face and fight off those lines.Silk also contains a natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. Studies have shown that amino acids can counter the effects of ageing, especially in the facial skin and can help calm the nervous system.

Silk Pillowcases Improves Hair Health

Silk pillowcases have been found to help with hair health and, in particular, with thinning of the hair. The short, rough fibres of cotton can rub against the shaft of the hair creating unwanted damage and breakage. With silk pillowcases, hair does a gliding motion rather than rubs on the fabric decreasing the chance of developing knotted hair and split ends. Like with the skin, hair needs to retain moisture to give it vitality and shine so the cotton pillowcase would be a big no-no if you want amazing, shiny locks. The sebum we produce in the hair follicles is also lessened with the use of silk pillowcases resulting in less greasy hair when we wake up in the morning.

Silk Pillowcases Are Hypoallergenic

For those that suffer from allergies, then a silk pillowcase can help you immensely. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, which means it has a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mould therefore those who suffer from asthma or eczema will benefit.


A final added bonus is that silk pillowcases are also 100% sustainable and more earth friendly than any other fabric in existence which is another plus for this miracle material. So perhaps it’s time to consider switching from cotton to silk? I think your hair, skin and overall health will thank you for it.

I will also be releasing my silk pillow case and tribal throw pillows soon. I have been working on this project for a while now, and i can not wait for everyone to see it.
