We love our pillowcases smelling clean and fresh. We go to bed with our cool pillows and beddings, feeling relaxed. Then we get up and feel rejuvenated in the morning.
Cotton and Nylon pillowcases are the two most common types used in households. These fabrics are more affordable and available almost everywhere.
However, there's another type of fabric that gives us more than just comfort but also helps our skin and our health.
And that, my friends, is SILK.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Try a Silk Pillowcase
Silk is hypoallergenic and has antimicrobial properties!
This is good news for people suffering from allergic rhinitis, acne, and sensitive skin.
People with allergic rhinitis would find it uncomfortable to sleep with pillowcases with loose fabric.
Silk is a natural protein fiber and it is resistant to dust mites, molds, and other allergens that can cause irritation.
Although it does not instantly reduce acne breakout, it helps in reducing it. Using other fabrics for your pillowcases, like cotton, is not good for people with acne.
Silk is your dry hair's best friend.
If you have dry straight, wavy, curly, or any other hair types enjoy the benefits of silk pillowcases.
Silk reduces friction. Other fabrics, like cotton, produce friction causing frizziness of our hair. Silk helps prevent more damage and it is not absorbent of moisture. However, please take note that if you have oily hair, a cotton pillowcase is best for you to use.
Silk pillowcases help avoid frizziness. People with curly hair find it a challenge to make their hair look prettier and curlier but with the anti-frizz effect of silk, it makes hair look healthier.
Silk keeps your skin hydrated and moisturised.
Silk has 18 amino acids that help improve your skin.
The Skincare regime doesn't end after closing the last bottle of skin care product but it continues while you sleep. Silk ensures that your skin stays hydrated and makes sure your skincare products stay on your skin through the night.
Silk is a temperature chameleon.
Silk adapts to a temperature that lets us sleep soundly at any temperature.
You definitely don't want to wake up with sweat all over your face during the warmer season.
As we mentioned before, silk is a natural protein fiber. It has a natural temperature regulating property. Having the ability to sync with our skin, giving us that natural insulating feeling to keep us warm. And the ability to cool us with its breathable and lightweight fabric.
Silk is pretty!!! It is the epitome of luxury. Due to its physical property, it gives out that shimmering, glossy effect that makes it look more luxurious.
Silk pillowcases come in different colours. Commonly available in solid colours. It also comes in more detailed patterns and designs.
But getting a silk pillowcase is a great value for the money! It’s more than just a status quo, or for aesthetics, it’s a great addition to our skincare and healthcare routine.
