Have you noticed creases on your face in the morning! This is a dead give away as to which side of your face you were sleeping. While the creases usually go away later on in the day, they are an indication of the damage that is done to your face when sleeping on a cotton pillowcase, and as we get older, our skin gets more fragile, our collagen and elastin grown less resilient and the sleep lines take longer to disappear, eventually turning into permanent wrinkles.
After researching this for the past month, I’ve come to the conclusion that silk pillowcases are where it’s at. Those sleep lines turn into permanent wrinkles. Because silky fabric is so soft and silky, your face glides. It’s not causing friction and causing sleep lines. Silk’s naturally hypoallergenic, because of the tight weave between the silk fibers, it doesn’t allow dust mites and other nasty things to get in there. It’s actually been tested and proven that silk is naturally hypoallergenic. And when it comes to cotton, it creates friction, which is why when you sleep on cotton you can wake up with sleep lines. If you’re putting those really expensive skin care products on your skin at night, where do you think that product is going? That product is actually getting absorbed into your cotton pillowcase.”
Sleeping on silk does not only apply to wrinkles it also applies to hair.
Sleeping on Silk can help prevent thinning of the hair. Cotton causes more friction disrupting hair follicles as we move in our sleep leading to hair breakage and split ends. Because of its special weave, Silk Pillowcases will prevent hair from tangling as we move in our sleep, they will also help keep our hairstyle. Hair treated by bleaching, highlighting, colouring, chemical perms, blow drying and curling or straightening tongs are especially susceptible to breakage. For braided, chemically treated or normal hair the use of Silk Charmeuse pillowcases reduces hair breakage, helps maintain proper moisture balance, protects hairstyles and eliminates most tangling. Silk Charmeuse is more comfortable and cooler than cotton and contributes to a good nights sleep!
