Anti-ageing

Most importantly, it has been provebthat silk prevents ageing! Silk contains a natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. Studies have shown that amino acids can counter the effects of ageing, especially in the facial skin and can help calm the nervous system. Silk also contains natural cellular albumen, which helps speed up metabolism of skin cells – thus helping to reduce signs of aging.

Unlike cotton (which is an absorbent fiber and draws moisture), silk will not absorb natural moisture from your face and hair, or facial beauty creams while you sleep. It therefore allows for more efficient use of night creams, providing better skin hydration which a clearer skin as the end result.

Temperature regulator

Silk is a natural heat regulator, maintaining the correct body temperature. It does not conduct heat or static electricity like other fibers. Heat is retained during cold temperatures and redundant heat is shed during warm temperatures, keeping your skin cool in the summer and warm in the winter.>

Health benefits

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, making it a must for asthma patients and allergy sufferers – especially those with eczema – helping sensitive, dry or itchy skin.

For asthma and allergy sufferers, there are many triggers such as chemicals and common indoor allergens which can aggravate both diseases. Medical experts advise that reducing exposure to allergens and irritants, such as dust mites and formaldehyde should be a critical part of patient’s asthma and allergy management plan.

For travelers with asthma and allergies, managing their exposure to allergens when they are away from home can be a challenge. Many bedding items contain unwanted chemical ingredients and finishes from manufacturing, and most bedding accumulates common indoor allergens during everyday use. SLEEP ‘N BEAUTY silk pillowcases are an effective chemical free barrier from these allergens. I take my SLEEP ‘N BEAUTY pillowcase with me every time I travel.

Sleep problems are quite common in people with Parkinson’s decease. These may be due to stiffness and discomfort. Using silk bedding with less friction really helps if you are experiencing difficulties turning over in bed.

Hair benefits

Hair care specialists recommend the use of silk pillowcases as sleeping on silk can help prevent thinning of the hair. Cotton may feel soft to the skin but its weave actually grips and tugs at individual strands, causing damage and breakage. The effects of continuous contact with cotton pillowcases can tangle hairstyles. Silk furthermore prevents knotted hair and split ends, it stimulates hydration, giving shinier hair and reduces sebum production which in turn decreases the chance of having greasy hair.
