Who knew that changing something as simple as your pillowcase could make such a difference to your self-care routine? With their impressive list of beauty benefits silk pillowcases have become a bit of a buzz word over the past year, however there’s significant proof to demonstrate that this isn’t just the latest trend. Here’s why you should consider making the switch to silk.  

 Silk Is Kind To Your Hair

Are you ready to have a good hair day every day? The smooth texture of silk fabric allows hair to glide over it as you move during the night. This stops the hair stands from breaking and becoming tangled. Meaning you wake up with silky smooth locks and hair that will become less damaged over time.

 Silk Pillows Are Anti-Aging

It seems too good to be true that a silk pillowcase can help prevent wrinkles, but leading dermatologists and aestheticians can’t stop recommending them. They advise that the rough texture of traditional cotton causes more friction against the skin which leads to increased creasing and wrinkles over time. Sleeping on pure silk allows the skin to glide smoothly on the surface of the pillow resulting in less traction and the production of fewer wrinkles. 

Silk Is Hypo Allergenic

Our Bonsoir silk pillowcases are made from 100% natural silk which is a hypoallergenic material. A recent study by the British Journal of Dermatology showed that silk was less irritating to the skin than traditional cotton, particularly in people with eczema. So, if you suffer from skin irritation a switch to silk should help you have a more comfortable night’s sleep.

It’s All About Hydration

It’s been drilled into our heads that hydration is key to the appearance of our skin and hair, but could your traditional cotton pillowcase be undermining your efforts? Cotton is a more absorbent material than silk, so it will draw out any moisture in your skin and hair while you sleep. This could be why you wake up looking dehydrated, especially in winter when central heating takes its toll. Switching to silk will allow your skin and hair to retain its hydration overnight as it absorbs less moisture than cotton.

Here at Bonsoir we believe that investing in your down time is one of the best things you can do for your personal wellbeing. Plus, as we spend 8 hours a day in bed injecting a little luxury into the experience is no bad thing. Adding a silk pillowcase to your life could be just the ticket to making your night's rest a thing of beauty. You’ll thank us in the morning.
