Silk Pillowcases Are Hypoallergenic
For all you animal lovers out there that love to cuddle up with your favorite furry friend when it comes time to snooze for the night don’t have many issues with what kind of fabric you wear or what type of sheets you use, however, for the unlucky few of us, pets, and more importantly, certain pillowcases can turn our sweetest dreams into our worst nightmare. Luckily, silk pillowcases are 100% hypoallergenic! They have a natural resistance to allergens that can cause you to start sniffling and get watery eyes. More specifically, some of the allergens that a silk pillowcase keeps out are things like mold, dust mites (yikes!), and even fungus.
Silk Pillowcases Helps With Wrinkle Prevention
Your face tosses and turns on your pillow all night long. The repetitive action of doing this night after night causes slight wrinkles to form on your face.This can mean bad news for those with sensitive skin. Silk pillowcases, on the other hand, have a smooth and frictionless surface that, in the long run, will give you less less “night wrinkles” and keep you looking better when you wake up in the morning!
Silk Pillowcases Are Great For Your Skin
Unlike many other types of pillowcases on the market, silk pillowcases actually helps your skin maintain its moisture throughout the night. This is because silk’s texture doesn’t absorb all of the precious moisturize your face needs to stay hydrated. Silk pillowcases are especially important during the winter months of the year as it won’t “steal” any last bit of moisture from your face that the cold already has.
Silk Pillowcases Regulate Temperature
As stated above, silk naturally repels moisture, but this is great for more than just your skin. Due to the lack of moisture in a silk pillowcase, it will regulate temperature much better than any other type of fabrics on the market. For instance, during the winter, the pillowcase will keep your pillow feeling warm, and in the summer, it will keep your pillow nice and cold. Isn’t that just awesome?!
Silk Pillowcases Are Great For Your Hair
The frictionless nature of the smooth surface of a silk pillowcase helps you a ton! Not only will it give you less of the “bed head” look in the morning, but it will also lower the amount of split-ends your hair gets after a good night's sleep. This is because silk pillowcases lack friction and leaves less room for hair damage during the night.
