After researching this for the past month, I’ve come to the conclusion that silk pillowcases are where it’s at.
I know, I know, sometimes silk can be sorta slippery.
Silk pillowcases > cotton pillowcases.
I mean, my hair is no longer a huge rat’s nest & I don’t have sleep lines. Plus, check it:
Silk is natural; it’s spun by silk worms. The fabric contains eighteen amnio acids ( << which are amaze for your skin ). According to this article by Taylor Time, “while you sleep at night, your skin is getting nourished by this beautiful silk. First the feeling of sleeping on silk is so luxurious and elegant but it’s also good for you. Most plastic surgeons and dermatologists can tell you when you go and visit them, they can see which side of your face you sleep on by the sleep lines on your face. 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.”
Um…are you sold yet?
Let’s get real for a second…sleep lines turn into deep, ole wrinkles. So nip that shit in the bud before it becomes a prob.
If you know me you know I’m all about preventative measures.
And if sleeping on a damn silk pillowcase prevents wrinkles all over my face then why the hell wouldn’t I sleep on silk?
It’s also a huge plus because silk helps with my allergies, rat’s nest hair, & contains amino acids that nourish my skin.
Ultimately, aging gracefully is something we’re all striving for- so buy a damn silk pillowcase & thank me later.
& hey, I betcha Sleeping Beauty slept on a silk pillowcase.
I mean, right?!
