How a pillow case can cure your skin

We know all about the ingredients that make skincare and haircare products great. Yes, Vitamin E is fantastic. Moroccan oil works wonders on the hair, we know.
But what if the secret to fresh, moisturised skin and strong, healthy hair was hidden in the material of our pillowcases?
Before you start laughing and I lose you completely, silk pillowcases can actually provide a number of health and beauty benefits.
Remember, your hair and skin come in direct contact with your pillowcase for hours on end so it makes sense that the fabric you choose can have implications on your hair and skin.
Silk pillowcases are comprised of smooth fibres that tend to have a similar composition to human hair, unlike cotton pillowcases that have a much rougher texture. This leads to less friction and therefore, less breakage, less frizz, less knots, less split ends and less chance of bed hair!
Silk can also absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture and still remain dry, making it a great option for restoring the hair with moisture and shine.
Silky smooth skin
Some fabrics can be incredibly harsh on the skin. Silk, on the other hand, should not cause any irritation or redness. Because it is so soft on the skin, it reduces the potential of sleep creases and fine wrinkles.
Silk picks up less pore-clogging bacteria than cotton does and also helps to promote a natural, healthy glow by retaining moisture.
A healthier and smarter choice overall
Silk pillowcases are hypoallergenic with a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus, mold and other allergens. Unlike other fabrics, silk does not require the use of harsh pesticides, herbicides and chemical treatments in its production.
Other than that, silk pillowcases are super easy to care for, feel pleasantly cool on the skin in the hotter months and make beautiful bedroom décor.
