Top Beauty Benefits of Silk

Revealing a few of the hidden beauty benefits of silk in the bedroom

Sleeping on silk not only feels great, it makes you look great. Here's a closer look at some of the beauty benefits of switching to silk bed linens:

Glowing Complexion

Sleeping on silk is not only great for those who have dry skin or suffer from ailments such as eczema, but those who are looking for a youthful complexion. The tightly-woven nature of silk keeps moisture against the skin, rather than wicking it away like cotton would. After spending a night sleeping with a silk pillowcase, you skin will be more hydrated than it would be if you had slept on cotton. Skin cells which are hydrated are more luminous and are plumper, showing fewer fine lines. Synthetic linens which can contain short, tightly wrapped fibres can cause the skin to be irritated.

Keep Your Perfect Hair-Do

Sleeping  on silk not only keeps your skin hydrated, it also moisturises your hair as well. Sleeping on silk allows your hair to glide over the surface, unlike cotton where it can knot and tangle. A top tip to keeping your hair looking beautiful for longer is to wrap a silk scarf around your hair as you sleep. This reduces the oils that created in your hair, allowing you to keep your hair style how it's looking for longer.

Wrinkle Free Skin

Sleeping on cotton can be tough on our skin, especially the delicate skin on our face. 'Sleep wrinkles' can form on our face when we sleep, as the skin is stretched and pulled by movement on cotton. Sleeping on silk allows for skin to move freely, gliding across the surface and without visible marks upon waking.
