7 Reasons a silk or satin pillowcase will benefit your beauty sleep

Silk and satin pillowcases will save you on the beauty front in many ways. Here are my top 8 reasons I think we all need one to snuggle up to at night.

1. Reduce WRINKLES.

Believe it or not, a simple silk pillowcase will help prevent further fine lines and wrinkles from appearing quicker than we would like. But don't expect miracles; you will still need to use your usual anti-ageing skincare regime. The fibres in the silk pillowcases are softer than your usual cotton mix cases. They are kinder to the skin and will reduce the pressure when we lay and minimise the pulling on your delicate skin as you move throughout the night. Repeated compression from sleeping, especially if you have a favourite side to sleep on, will over time create wrinkles. Using a silk pillowcase will help slow down the ageing process.

2. Helps to improve the condition of your hair.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't like buying a miracle product, but in time it will help improve the condition of your hair along with a regular hair appointment and a great hair care routine. Once you have cut your split ends off, it will help prevent new ones from coming, which are normally caused by tossing and turning all night against the pillow. If you have fine hair, it will also help reduce the amount of tangles, relieving you from that crazy bedhead look when you get up in the morning. Your locks will be easier to brush and save you time tackling those tangles.

3. Aids hydration to your skin

Silk pillowcases will leave your skin feeling more hydrated. Some fabrics will absorb the moisture from your skin leaving you feeling a little dry in the morning. Silk pillowcases do the opposite. They repel the moisture from your skin, leaving your nighttime skincare routine exactly where it should remain on your face. This, in turn, will help improve your skin condition, leaving you feeling hydrated and aid with the ageing process. We could all do with a little added moisture.

4. Helps to grow your hair longer.

With the extra hydration and less friction, less breakage will occur. The less breakage and fewer split ends will help your hair gain length while growing your hair out. Who wouldn't want long, luscious silky locks?

5. Helps regulate body temperature

These help keep the night sweats to a minimum, so perfect if you generally sweat through the night or if those hormones creep up on you. Silk pillowcases will help you regulate your body temperature throughout your sleep and keep the night sweats from affecting your hair.

5. Helps keep your hairstyle in shape for longer.

A silk pillowcase will allow your hairstyle to stretch a little longer. Less friction by tossing and turning will minimise stress on the hair that creates frizz, which means your style will last longer.

It may help to make your blow-dry last that extra day.

6 Great for all hair types but a saviour for us curly girls.

For us frizzy hair types, these pillowcases are amazing at taming those thicker locks. The proteins in the silk fabric will not absorb the moisture from your hair like other pillowcases do, so your hair should remain a little more hydrated. We all know how dehydrated curly hair really can be, so if we can retain as much moisture as we can, it will be a bonus!

8 Great for skin conditions.

It will not be the cure for your ongoing skin condition, however it will most certainly help.

Any inflammatory skin conditions, eczema, psoriasis or acne sufferers may benefit from using a silk pillowcase. The softness of the fabric will be kinder to their already inflamed skin and help provide a more comfortable night's sleep than a standard cotton case.

I have Mulberry silk pillowcases and Satin ones. Both were gifted to me by family and friends. I highly recommend you add them to your wish list or just hit the buy now option! Bed head No More!
