Have you heard about the benefits of sleeping on silk pillowcases? If you haven’t, listen up. Traditional cotton pillowcases can actually be wreaking havoc on your skin and hair and that’s a big NO NO (especially after you’ve pampered yourself with a rejuvenating facial or fabulous blowout). Thank goodness for Slip Silk Pillowcases, made from pure mulberry silk with a thickness of 22 momme (that’s good) and a charmeuse finish. Slip uses only non-toxic dyes, and works closely with their suppliers to ensure that fair workplace practices are enforced and that only the highest quality materials are used.
Read on for 5 reasons to ditch the cotton and sleep on silk Slip pillowcases. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing!
1. Prevent wrinkles
Hellloooo, do we even need to elaborate? There’s a reason Slip pillowcases are “probably the best anti-aging beauty ‘product’ a dame can use” and loved by experts (such as dermatologists, hairdressers, plastic surgeons, beauty therapists, etc). Silk allows the skin to glide whereas cotton can scratch, tug, and stretch delicate facial skin as we toss and turn.
2. Bedhead no more
Same reason as above: instead of getting caught and tugged on cotton fabric, leading to messy bedhead or even breakage and other damage, hair can glide over silk. Great news for people with curly hair, hair extensions, fragile hair, literally any other kind of hair, and people who just had a blowout. Yes, SILK HELPS PROLONG YOUR BLOWOUT. Game-changer.
3. Save your lashes
Slippery, satiny silk pillowcases are awesome for those with Lash Extensions. Eyelashes shed naturally, but there’s no need to have them tugged out prematurely by your cotton pillow while you slumber! Silk can help protect your glam lashes between fills.
4. Helps to hydrate
Cotton is a very absorbent material, and can draw moisture away from your skin. This can mean not only drying out sensitive facial skin, but wicking away your anti-aging night crème to boot! Silk leaves your skin more hydrated in the morning, and hydrated skin looks healthy, vibrant, and is less prone to wrinkles.
5. Silk is au naturel
As in: naturally dust mite resistant, a natural temperature regulator (a nice cool pillow in the summer? oh yes), hypoallergenic (remember, NO toxic dyes), and naturally super soft, slippery, and satiny. And naturally we want like 10 of these babies. At least.
So when you lay your head on a Slip silk pillowcase, you’re not sleeping, you’re giving yourself a well-deserved beauty treatment. And if you want to be really fancy, you can get a matching silk sleep mask. Whoa. Both are available here at INTERLOCKS so run (or like, drive) and get yours today. PSSST REALLY OBVIOUS HINT: Mom would love one. Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th, you know. (You did know, didn’t you?)
