Are silk pillowcases really better for your skin?

Are silk pillowcases really better for your skin?

Looking after yourself comes in all sorts of forms, our favourite is a restful night's sleep and a glowing skincare routine. As the cult of skincare continues to bloom, silk pillowcases are about to have their moment in the spotlight.

Here are 3 reasons why you need to switch to a silk pillowcase, like right now. 


1. Reduce signs of ageing 

After a long night's sleep, are you waking up with some creases across your face? Cotton pillowcases may not be as good for you as you think, the fabric causes friction and rubbing against your skin leading to premature wrinkles, lines and creases. 

Swapping to a smoother fabric, like silk will greatly help with reducing all those lines because your skin will glide over the pillowcase leaving you with smooth, supple skin in the morning.


2. Skin-soothing relief

Did you know, the average person will sleep for 229,961 hours in their lifetime! So, it's important to care for your skin even while you're resting. 

If you have sensitive skin, then you'll know just how important it is to keep your skin healthy and in top condition. From those suffering with acne and eczema to delicate facial skin, you'll find that silk pillowcases will be much more gentle helping to improve certain skin concerns. 

(BTW, Silvi silk is treated with silver ions which helps to reduce bacteria that might be causing you to breakout, see an increase in clogged pores and redness)


3. Healthier hair

Silk properties are not just for your skin, but just as incredible for your hair too. When you're sleeping on a smooth surface (like silk, not cotton), it helps to reduce friction on your head when you're tossing and turning throughout the night. 

This means a silk pillowcase will help to de-frizz, reduce any hair breakage and damage, fewer tangles and split ends. Plus, you get to wake up with not so crazy bed head and keep those luscious locks in tact (especially if you've had your hair done the night before for an event!).


This is your sign to treat yourself or treat someone else with our award-winning silk pillowcase. If you're not sure what to get for someone, gift them a voucher - it's the most simple way to show them you still care 🤍
