do you sleep with A SILK PILLOWCASE?

A little luxury while you sleep can only mean something good can't it? Silk allows your skin to glide, where as cotton can tug on your delicate facial tissue causing creases and premature stretching.

I was gifted a SLIP silk pillowcase and I have to say I will never look back. I wake up with my hair smooth and my face without creases and not feeling so dehydrated like it does sleeping on a cotton pillowcase. Silk absorbs less moisture than cotton, so this helps keep your skin hydrated while you sleep. 


SLIP silk pillowcases are made  from mulberry silk with a thickness of 22 momme, they are the very best available anywhere in the world.

- Ever woken up with a ‘sleep-crease’ on your face?  While the creases usually go away later the same day, they are an indication of the damage done to your face when sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.
- Cotton draws moisture from your hair, drying it out. The same rough treatment that causes bed-head can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthy hair.
Silk pillowcases are infinitely gentler on your hair than cotton. Cotton grabs your hair and twists it at the root throughout the night, damaging hair and causing bed-head in the morning, silk is so gentle on your hair, it allows your hairstyle/blow-dry to last overnight.
Cotton not only draws moisture from your hair but your skin as well, drying it out and nullifying the benefits of moisturising crème.
Silk breathes. It’s hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant. It’s also a natural temperature regulator, so it’s cooler in summer and doesn’t sweat like synthetic satin and other man-made imitations. Synthetic satin (e.g. polyester) may feel nice and soft in your hand, but after an 8 hour sleep your hair and facial skin can really feel the difference.

According to a US dermatologist... "Persistently pressing your face into a pillowcase causes trauma to the skin, which over time is aggravated even more by the friction caused by a cotton pillowcase. This can create permanent creases (wrinkles) as collagen, which keeps your skin elastic, breaks down." So silk seems to be the anti-ageing option.
