We all joke about needing our beauty sleep, but the truth is that sleeping well is one of the best things we can do to keep our skin looking it's best and sleeping on silk is one of the most effective ways to maximise the beauty benefits of a good night's sleep.
Fight Visible Signs Of Ageing
The smooth, tight weave of natural silk fabric keeps moisture close to your skin, and will leave your face feeling more hydrated than if you slept on traditional cotton or synthetic polyester fibres. Naturally hydrated, plump skin cells show fewer lines and wrinkles, meaning you’ll wake up looking and feeling radiant. And who doesn't want for that?
Not only does a silk pillowcase feel wonderful against your skin, but added to that, a range of experts suggest that silk can also help stop or reduce the effects of ageing. A silk pillowcase contains a natural protein and a number of amino acids, and recent studies of these proteins and amino acids indicate that these can make your facial lines and wrinkles appear smoother and less noticeable, as it relaxes the nervous system.
Silk pillowcases and silk eye masks also contain natural chemicals which speeds up the metabolism of your skin. This mean your skin cells develop and repair much quicker than normal. Additionally, given silk pillowcases don't absorb moisture, applying facial creams prior to bed won't come with the usual concerns about loss of moisture.
Soothe Your Skin
Silk can help ease flakey, dry or itchy skin. It is a great solution for eczema sufferers or if you have sensitive or easy-irritated skin. Silk contains a natural protein and essential amino acid, which makes it a natural, skin-friendly material.
So if you or someone you know has such skin conditions as eczema, a silk pillowcase or silk sleep mask might be just what you need. Other bedding materials such as cotton or polyester can aggravate eczema, with the skin overheating and losing moisture. On the other hand, a silk pillowcase is soft, smooth and light, and ensure your face will retain moisture or your facial creams, which in turn further reduces the likelihood of your skin being itchy or dry by morning.
A silk pillowcase will give you peace of mind that you can get a restful and wonderful night’s sleep. It’s anti-aging, it's natural and it's soothing for your skin, making it the perfect addition to your bed routine for an undisturbed and glorious night’s sleep.
Say Goodbye To Bad Hair Days
Cotton pillowcases can dry out your hair, and cause it to knot and frizz. Sleeping with silk will keep your hair naturally soft, moisturised and tangle-free. What’s more, the cling-free properties of silk can extend the life of your blow dry by two days.
The Goodnight Co.'s silk pillowcases provide significant benefits for the health of your hair. Firstly, silk does not absorb moisture, however it does wick moisture to ensure the excess moisture in your hair is removed, and also taking grease away from your body. This in turn ensures that your hair remains dry and with reduced grease in the morning. The amazing smoothness of a silk pillowcase can also be found to reduce thinning of the hair, which in turn can lead to split ends. The material in a silk pillowcase contains anti-static qualities which can prevent your hair from knotting.
