Slows down the skin ageing process
Did you know that using a silk pillowcase can actually give help you achieve wrinkle-free skin? Cotton pillow cases absorb your night creams and serums thereby taking away the nutrients your skin needs while you’re asleep. However, silk pillowcases help retain the skin’s moisture and keep your skin supple; mainly slowing down the skin’s ageing process. We suggest using this pillowcase from an early age as that will reap long term benefits.
Fights hair fall and split ends
When you use a silk pillowcase while sleeping, hair glides on it instead of rubbing against it while tossing and turning. A cotton pillowcase, on the other hand, weakens the hair follicles due to friction causing breakage resulting in hair loss. Using a silk pillowcase for hair also retains the moisture in the hair, thus reducing frizz and split ends. Goodbye, bad hair days!
Keeps the skin taut and supple
Wrinkles are caused by the loss of collagen and elasticity, which reduces skin volume. Silk is a natural fibre that contains strings of amino acids, which has the same pH level as our skin. These amino acids leave the skin hydrated thus retaining moisture in the skin. Unlike dry and flaky skin, hydrated skin cells show fewer wrinkles. Those with dry skin should especially resort to this method to help their skin stay moisturised.
Relieves skin from irritation
Hypoallergenic silk fibres resist many skin allergens like fungus, spores, etc. making it a relief for sensitive skin. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase reduces stress on your skin, so that chances of waking up with sleeping lines are close to none. This also leaves the skin less irritated and crease free. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase from now on would be one of the best solutions to great skin and hair while you sleep.
