Silk sheets and pyjamas for better skin
A symbol of sentiment and taste, silk evokes glamourous imagery of Old Hollywood’s leading ladies. Today, people around the world are gaining an even deeper appreciation of silk. Not just romantic, opulent and timeless, silk has plenty of benefits for your hair and skin too. In recent years, further research into women’s health has revealed that wearing the material, particularly overnight (with silk pyjamas and silk sheets) is far better for skin than standard cotton and polyester alternatives. In fact, silk can reduce the effects of aging and provide relief for certain skin conditions.
How does silk benefit skin?
For your face — Silk helps to restore moisture balance to the skin, keeping it hydrated without the need for excess oils. The silk’s fibres will redistribute the skin’s natural moisture, so you can avoid clogged pores while reaping the benefits of plump, radiant skin. Over time, you will also notice a brighter complexion and the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
For your body — If you suffer from flakiness, flare-ups or dryness, silk’s hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties will definitely benefit your skin. Silk has no potentially irritating chemicals and its natural substances keep various environmental allergens at bay. Also great for asthma, it’s tightly woven, natural fibres lock in moisture and increase breathability, deterring sensitive skin triggers like dust mites, mould, and fungus.
For your hair — Sleeping on the rough fibres of a cotton pillowcase can be really damaging to your locks. Super soft silk will keep hair long and strong as well as reducing oil build up and static. It’s also a great way to maintain styled hair as a silk pillowcase will help keep your look intact, so you can make the most of your blowout.
