You might benefit from a silk pillowcase if you want clearer skin and healthier hair

After a great night's sleep, you feel fantastic - until you look in the mirror. It's not quite what you expected to wake up to: pillow creases on your face and what looks like a bird's nest on your head.

Is this familiar? Changing your pillowcases might be a good idea.

Sleeping on silk may sound like a Kardashian thing to do, but it's actually one of the best ways to transform your nighttime routine - and silk pillowcases are great for your skin and hair too. Feeling intrigued? We've got everything you need to know, including which ones we'd like to sleep on...

Silk pillowcases: what are the benefits?

Compared to cotton, silk is less absorbent. As a result, a silk pillowcase is less likely to steal your face cream while you sleep, helping your face glide smoothly along it all night.

In other words, if your face cream is working uninterrupted, and your skin is hydrated, you will likely avoid waking up with dehydrated lizard skin.

How to choose a silk pillowcase? 

There are numerous pillowcase options available in stores and online at prices ranging from $10 to more than $100. If you want to try one, look for a product made from 100% mulberry silk. Many products provide the momme count, a number up to 30 that indicates silk’s weight and density. However, it’s not the best unit for quality because metals or fillers can be added to artificially increase the number. Look for certification from the OEKO-TEX, which means the product doesn’t contain chemicals or additives.

All of LoveSilk Mulberry Silks products are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified and have been tested and guaranteed to be free of all harmful substances, including toxins and irritants. This ensures that the silk products that you bring into your home are safe, natural and healthy.
