Does Using A Silk Pillowcase Really Benefit Your Hair And Skin ?

Yes ,it does ! I've been sleeping on a silk pillowcase for the past two months and it has been a total delight and all around game changer. Here are two reasons to own a silk pillowcase .

For skin:

  1. Less wrinkles:Silk contains 18 amino acids which nourish your skin and doesn’t absorb moisture from your face and body, preventing your skin from drying out; When you wake up after sleeping on a silk pillowcase, your skin will be better hydrated with fewer fine lines and wrinkles;
  2. Benefit for acne:Silk may present a kinder and cleaner surface for cradling your cheek. The friction from cotton on pimple-prone skin can create more inflammation, making acne worse. Cotton also sops up the natural oil and bacteria from your face and hair, and that grime accumulates on your case night after night, creating a petri dish out of your pillow, especially people who sleep on their sides or stomach.

For hair:

Silk pillowcases are smooth for the hair and will keep hair in place and looking neat all night long; The smooth surface also prevents the hair from tangling, drying and snagging like on a cotton pillowcase; Cotton pillowcase is more likely to cause resistance, and grip on your hair, resulting in breakage and split ends; Silk pillowcase minimizes the rough resistance on your hair when you toss and turn at night;
