You can now level up your beauty routine while you get a great night’s sleep. We know it almost sounds too good to be true. It turns out, though, that sleeping on silk not only feels refreshing, but it’s beneficial for your skin and hair, too. It’s as simple as adding a silk pillowcase on your pillow. Trust us, your hair and skin will thank you.
Silk offers a lot of benefits, especially when compared to cotton. Cotton pillowcases absorb moisture and cause friction while you sleep, resulting in damaged, staticky, and frizzy hair. We’ve all had those mornings when we look in the mirror and wonder what happened to our hair overnight.
Silk, on the other hand, has naturally smoothing qualities that allow your hair to glide across it. And, you’ll be able to tell the difference as soon as you wake up. Since it minimizes friction, silk reduces tangles and damage. That means fewer split ends to worry about. It also means you may get some extra life out of your hairstyle (that alone is enough of a plus if you ask us)! Or, if you have a silk scarf, you can even wrap your hair in it to see the same positive effects.
Your skin will benefit, too.
You know those wrinkles that tend to pop up after a long sleep? Silk is known to reduce them. Since it’s a soft fabric, it keeps your skin smooth when you’re lying down. And, it’s hydrating, holding moisture close to the skin instead of pulling it out. So, if you’re struggling with dry skin, a silk pillowcase might be just the solution you’ve been looking for.
This is an easy way to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed.
Even if you’re just trying to squeeze a quick nap into your day, silk is still the way to go. Its naturally cooling properties make it easier to relax, taking you to that serene state you need for a rejuvenating nap. And, now you won’t have to spend as long when you get up fixing your hair for the rest of the day, either.
It’s not often you can find one product that improves both your skin and hair in one go, and that’s part of what makes silk seem almost magical. Once you slip on that new pillowcase, get ready for the luxurious sleep you’ve been dreaming about. After that, maybe it will be time to upgrade to a full set of silk sheets.
