Have you heard of the anti-ageing beauty benefits of a 100 per cent mulberry silk pillowcase? Cotton pillowcases can often ‘grab’ the skin, resulting in the formation of lines and creases. Silk, on the other hand, due to its soft surface means there is little to no friction when our heads move on the pillow. This can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and potentially lessen the formation of further ones.
Silk can also help keep moisture close to your skin, and can help your skin stay more hydrated than other fabrics on the market. This is due to its protein structure which contains many amino acids in common with the human body. These can help to moisturise and penetrate the skin, aiding in absorption and skin hydration.
Silk is 100 per cent natural and hypo-allergenic. This makes it resistant to dust mites, fungus, and mould, making it an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies. Silk's natural fabric requires no harsh chemical treatments, making it an excellent choice for people with skin sensitivities.
Another benefit of a silk pillow is that it can reduce the ‘morning bed head’ look. The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface, can help to reduce friction on your hair and can help those smooth tresses stay that way.
Considering the benefits of silk pillowcases, this could be one of the best investments you make in your beauty routine this year.
