Are you someone that wakes up with a bird’s nest of tangled hair and the occasional crease mark on your face? Do you routinely apply a luxurious face serum, cream or oil to your skin in the evenings? Do you sleep on a pillowcase made from cotton? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, best to keep reading.
I have dug up the most wonderful snippets of information that not only make sense, but will help bring about a more beautifying sleep.
~ Cotton not only draws moisture from your hair but your skin as well, drying it out and nullifying the benefits of nighttime serums (ie: your cotton pillow slip is getting the benefits of your nourishing nighttime lotions and potions, not you.)
~ Silk allows your hair to glide over the pillow, rather than grabbing and twisting it every time you move your head during the night. (ie: no more bird’s-nest bed-head)
~ Unlike cotton, the amino acids in silk proteins resemble those found in human skin, creating a virtually perfect pH balance that does not deplete moisture. (ie: silk pillowslips improve moisture retention and enhance the absorption of beauty products)
~ In the Orient, natural silk has always been known as “the second skin” and has been a beauty secret since the Ming Dynasty for skin hydration and anti-aging properties.
In a nutshell, silk pillowcases are designed to work naturally with skin and hair and make nighttime beauty routines more effective. Hmmm, now I’m starting to think … why stop at the pillowslips. Doesn’t your body deserve the same softness as well?! If anyone knows of a good quality silk sheets supplier, please let me know.
As with most things in life quality is one thing that’s best to make a priority, especially when it comes to health, beauty and wellbeing. My picks are SLIP for the Southern Hemisphere and BEAUTY ZZZ for the Northern Hemisphere.
