Why should you incorporate silk to your night-time routine?
Adding silk to your night-time routine really is the crowning step in a successful beauty regimen. After a soft, luxurious and restful sleep it will have you waking up feeling revitalised and ready for the day ahead!
Everyone’s heard the term ‘silky smooth hair’, and it’s something that we all long for. The phrase is rooted in something deeper, and multiple scientific studies have shown that silk can promote healthier and shinier hair!
It’s now well understood that sleeping on a silk pillowcase can stop your hair from tangling in the night. On cotton, hair strands will get stuck to the pillowcase and become tangled during the night whilst you toss and turn, contributing to the inevitable ‘bed-head’. This tangling often leads to breakage as a result, and the damage builds up over time. The soft and smooth texture of silk allows strands of hair to glide rather than tangle and knot together, which reduces the stress and damage that can be caused over time.
The best thing is that the benefits compound over time, no more miracle creams or intensive treatments! By giving your hair the right care that it needs every night, you’re setting yourself up for long-term hair wellness.
And the good news is, the benefits aren’t just for your hair too!
Do you ever feel like you’re suffering with dry, dehydrated skin? Silk bedwear is your answer. Now we’re not saying to ditch the moisturiser just yet, but sleeping in silk bedding can help to keep skin hydrated during the night.
And not only hydration! Whilst the tightly-wove, smooth silk fibres help keep the moisture close to your skin and keep it hydrated throughout the night, the smooth silk fibres also have a second but just as important function.
A major cause of wrinkles, especially around the eyes, is from the stress and stretching of the skin during the night against a pillowcase. With a cotton pillowcase, although the texture can feel smooth there is a lot of friction between the pillowcase and the face, and the constant stretching from the tossing and turning of sleeping can squeeze and stretch the skin, which contributes to the formation of wrinkles over time.
With silk, however, your skin glides over the surface and is supported by the soft silk. No longer will you wake up feeling like your face has been stretched.
And it’s not just the feeling that will be doing wonders for you. Although you won’t be able to see it, the natural cellular albumen found in silk helps to speed up the metabolism of skin cells, ensuring that they’re turning over and replenishing at a faster rate which in turn leads to healthier, plumper skin.
So what are you waiting for? Ditch that next miracle cream you have your eyes on, and invest now in real care for your skin and hair, that looks after you every night.
