Here’s Why Everyone Needs A Silk Pillowcase

I’m a convert. I’ve been sleeping on a silk pillowcase for the past month, and I have to say, it has been a total delight. Sleeping on silk, was something that had never really occurred to me. We all the know the fairy tale myth of the silk pillowcase, so I was curious to find out if all the hype was in fact true. I mean, silk pillowcases have been likened to anti-aging products, and are often considered to improve your hair’s health while being hypoallergenic temperature regulators that also moisturise your face. Could this be magic?

I purchased the John Lewis Silk Oxford Pillowcase. Thus, I delved into the luxurious life of someone who sleeps on silk. Since I started sleeping on a silk pillowcase, I have not only found it a lot more comfortable than simple cotton, but I’m also excited to report that I have in fact noticed a couple of beauty benefits as well.

I’m pleased to report that I have noticed a few things about my skin that I would attribute to the pillowcase.

I have kept my skin/beauty routine completely the same. So there is no other reason my skin would have been affected. I immediately noticed how smooth my skin was after only one night’s sleep, I literally could not stop stroking my face the next day. If you’re only going to invest in one piece of silk bedding to start with, the silk pillowcase provides a lot of benefit for the cost. It also helped reduce my skin’s redness. The lack of abrasion was a godsend, especially during these colder months.

I also noticed that I was getting less spots after only about a week. I’m not someone who gets many spots in general. But after using the silk pillowcase my skin has been almost completely devoid of red bumps. This might be because silk doesn’t pick up as much pore-clogging bacteria as cotton does. Your face has more contact with your pillowcase than any other fabric. So, if you want to keep your face looking refreshed, your choice in pillowcase is very important.

Now the best bit. Are you tired of waking up in the morning and having hair that looks like you just stuck your finger in a socket? I can confirm that sleeping on luxury silk pillowcases will help keep that bed head under control. The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface. Can help reduce friction on your hair which often causes damage, like split ends. For your hair, it truly does pay to sleep on a silk pillowcase. All in all, if good hair’s your thing, it’s a real game-changer. Final verdict? A silk pillowcase is an absolute must.
