Benefits of silk pillowcase: Beautiful skin and hair even while sleeping

Women of all ages desire beautiful skin and hair. There are many ways to care for your skin and hair, but silk pillowcases are now at the center of attention. It takes a lot of time and effort to take care of your hair and skin, but if you could take care of both while you sleep, it wouldn't feel time-consuming.

Silk's benefits

The cocoon of the silkworm moth is a shell that protects the inside of the cocoon from external enemies and nature, and it also protects against UV rays. Silk is made from the cocoon of the silkworm moth.

Silk is composed of the same proteins (amino acids) as human skin, making it a soft and skin-friendly material. As a result, even people with sensitive skin can use it safely. Silk has excellent insulating properties, moisture-absorbing properties, and moisture-releasing properties, making it a versatile fiber that can be worn in any season.

The relationship between silk and beautiful skin

Due to its similarity to human skin, silk has properties that are well suited to the human body. Among the causes of skin problems are UV rays. It is the reactive oxygen species produced by UV rays that cause the skin to darken and lose firmness when exposed to UV rays.

The body requires reactive oxygen to function, which, in the right amount, kills bacteria and protects cells. In response to ultraviolet light, skin cells produce large amounts of reactive oxygen species. When the amount is too high, reactive oxygen species can cause cell damage due to their powerful oxidizing abilities.

Because silk blocks the activity of reactive oxygen species, it is expected to prevent skin problems and aging caused by reactive oxygen species.

In addition to being effective for the skin, silk should also be effective for the hair. In the same way that skin is made up of proteins, silk gum, a protein component of silk, gives hair its shine. In addition, silk is water-retentive and antibacterial, so it moisturizes hair and protects it from bacteria. 

It is essential to provide adequate nutrition and moisture from the outside in order to maintain beautiful skin and hair. It is important to take care of them from the inside as well as the outside.

Healthy skin and hair require a balanced diet of foods that contain water-retaining properties (vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12) and foods high in protein. Among the best foods to eat are green and yellow vegetables, honey, nuts, dairy products, and eggs, as well as proteins like meat, seafood, soy, dairy products, and eggs.

Also, getting enough sleep is essential to avoid fatigue and stress, as well as being aware of the effects of external enemies like stress and UV rays.
