Did you know that we spend almost a third of our lives sleeping? But besides dreaming and resting, we can make more of this precious time. And silk pillowcases help you to achieve this three-fold for the benefit of your skin, hair and overall health.
Silk pillowcases are breathable, meaning no cooling or overheating of your skin no matter the climate. It also prevents sleep creases and wrinkles, which indicates micro-tears of your skin from your pillow’s cotton fabric that can deepen over time and lead to ageing. In other words, there's no pulling of the skin.
Silk is also complementary to your locks as it helps retain moisture and regulate your scalp’s sebum production. Even if you move your head from side to side while asleep, smooth silk fibres allow your hair to glide with ease; meaning less knots, split ends and shaft damage.
Lastly, there’s just something so luxurious about sleeping on a silk pillow. The material is naturally resistant to allergens so there’s no chance of your immune system being challenged while you rest.
“Hello beautiful” is embroidered on one corner of the pillowcase to remind you that that’s what you are every night before you close your eyes, and in the morning when you wake.
We’ve known about the beauty and sleep benefits of using silk pillowcases for eons — did you know that silk is one of the best anti-bacterial materials? — but never got around to procuring them for ourselves. Now we have — and for a good cause!
When we lie down on our pillows, we do so to rest and sleep. However, many women and girls living in impoverished cities are trafficked around the world and lie down to work instead. 10% of the profits go to supporting anti-human trafficking and women’s rights.
