We all know the value of beauty sleep, but did you know that it is possible to enhance the effects of it, simply with a different pillowcase?


With night creams and potions claiming to work miracles while you sleep and now silk and satin pillowcases supposedly helping you to mimic the effects of a full 8 hours sleep, can sleeping on silk or satin really help you to smoother skin and good hair days? We take a look at some of the benefits of switching your pillowcase.


Reduces frizzy hair

Cotton pillowcases tend to absorb moisture from hair and can snag at the follicles, leaving it frizzy, dry, and tangled the next day. The smooth texture of silk and satin means that hair slides over the material without getting tangled and frizzy. It also doesn’t absorb moisture from the hair, leaving it feeling soft and hydrated. All in all, silk and satin pillowcases are ideal for eliminating those bad hair days!


Reduces dry skin

The super-smooth texture of silk and satin means that it is much less likely to absorb moisture and beauty products from your skin as you sleep, which helps to keep skin hydrated. This makes them ideal for people who suffer with dry skin on their face, especially in the winter, as they won’t contribute to dryness like cotton does.


Reduces wrinkles

Could silk and satin be the answer to those fine lines and wrinkles? Well, partly, yes. The reduced friction from the material means that the skin is pulled and tugged less while you sleep. Research indicates that the reduced friction because of the smoother surface can reduce the effect of fine lines and wrinkles incurred as you sleep.


Regulates temperature

If you sleep hot, then silk or satin is the answer to your nighttime woes! Silk fibres are brilliant at temperature regulation and, unlike cotton, it helps to create a cooler sleep surface. When used in combination with a cool gel pillow or snow pillow, silk and satin pillowcases might just be the cool sleep surface you’ve been longing for!
