Your basket is currently empty!
We spend nearly a third of our lives asleep, and so it makes sense to create the best possible environment for you to get that much needed rest. But quite apart from cocooning you in luxurious comfort, Silk has a number of known benefits meaning that more and more people are choosing to sleep with Silk pillowcases and other sleep accessories.
Here, we let you in to those secrets. But don’t take our word for it, try for yourself!
Silk provides a much softer and more supple surface on which to rest your head, and face. Softer and more supple than even the highest quality cotton pillowcases. Sleeping on Silk means that you won’t be subject to the creasing and compression of your skin that cotton pillowcases can cause – no more waking up with those characteristic creases in the morning when you look in the mirror!
Over time, the wear and tear that cotton puts on your skin can result in permanent wrinkles – Silk prevents that wear and tear and helps you to prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Silk naturally repels moisture, meaning that it can help you to retain the moisture that you would otherwise lose by sleeping on cotton. Silk provides a natural way of helping your skin to stay healthy and hydrated, and Silk pillowcases and other sleep items work incredibly well as part of your existing health and beauty regime.
No longer will your pillowcase soak up all of the moisture in your skin, leaving your skin feeling dry and dehydrated in the morning. And you won’t find that your skin care products have disappeared and been absorbed into your pillow, because Silk naturally repels moisture and helps those valuable products to stay where they should!
All of this helps to make your night time skin care regimen all the more effective and for you to see results more quickly.
SOOTHING SENSITIVE SKIN
Silk provides an optimum surface on which to rest your head. We’ve talked about how it can prevent the formation of wrinkles and help to ensure that your skin stays hydrated. But by preventing wear and tear on the skin and providing a much softer surface on which to sleep, Silk can also assist if you suffer from sensitive skin conditions, such as eczema, acne or other conditions which cause skin inflammation or irritation.
Silk can reduce inflammation, irritation and itching and provide you with welcome relief. It can also help you to manage any skin conditions that you have, working in conjunction with existing treatments.
A CLEAN DREAM
We’ve all heard about the nasties that can lurk in our bedsheets and pillowcases. Silk has natural anti-bacterial properties which help it to stay cleaner between washes. As we’ve noted, it also naturally repels moisture, which can make it a less inviting environment for dust mites and bacteria. Silk can also help with allergies, attracting fewer bedroom allergies than cotton.
All of this means that a Silk sleep product, such as a pillowcase, can help you to achieve a healthier and more hygienic sleeping environment. And given the amount of time that we spend in bed, who wouldn’t want that?
HAIR – LESS WEAR AND TEAR
Not only does Silk have significant benefits for your skin, but it should also be a key part of your sleep hair care regimen. Silk can care for your skin and your hair whilst you sleep.
First, Silk’s hydrating properties mean that it does not sap moisture from your hair, helping to keep your hair looking healthier. Silk’s smoothness and suppleness helps to restore your hair’s strength and reduce breakage, especially if you have damaged or chemically treated hair, or your hair just needs a pick me up.
Second, Silk’s smoothness and suppleness reduces friction and wear and tear on your hair, especially if you are a restless sleeper who tends to toss and turn at night. This can reduce frizz, breakage and tangling.
Whether you like to sleep hot or cold, Silk can help you to maintain effective temperature control at night, regulating body temperature to make sure that you get the rest you need.
Silk’s moisture repelling properties and breathability helps your body to regulate temperature better than a comparable cotton product. This will help to give you comfortable sleep no matter whether you prefer to hoard the blankets or to sleep al fresco – we are all different!
JUST … LUXURY
So we saved the most obvious point until last – what could be more luxurious than sleeping on Silk? Especially when the Silk in question is a Silk Lab sleep product, crafted from the highest quality 22 momme Silk.
There’s nothing quite the same as resting your head on Silk. And whilst we’re sure you’ll become accustomed to it, it’s an experience that you’ll want to keep coming back to every day.
