What's the big deal?
We spend a third of our lives in bed.
By the time we are 60, we will have slept for an average of 20 years.
Traditional pillowcases - such as cotton - don't slip, so they continuously tug at delicate parts of the face and neck. Only pillowcases made from pure silk of the highest quality and generous thickness provide the slip required to prevent bed-head, sleep-crease and skin-stretching.
When you think about how much time and effort we spend on face crémes, facials, diet, sun screen, it's surprising to what extent sleeping on the wrong pillowcase undermines all that effort.
And not just your face; sleeping on cotton is equally damaging to your hair!
How exactly is silk good for you?
Ever woken up with a 'sleep-crease' on your face? While the creases usually go away later the same day, they are an indication of the damage done to your face when sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.
A secret hairdressers have know for decades (and the Chinese have known for centuries); silk pillowcases are infinitely gentler on your hair than cotton. When you sleep on a SLIP pure silk pillowcase you'll notice a huge difference in the state of your hair when you wake up in the morning. Your hairstyle not only lasts longer, but even people with curly hair can say goodbye to the dreaded morning 'bird's nest' - the silk allows your hair to glide over the pillow, rather than grabbing and twisting it every time you move your head during the night. Cotton also draws moisture from your hair, drying it out at the same time and further contributing to bed-head.
Unfortunately 'bed-head' is not only an inconvenience, but a symptom of something more serious. The same rough treatment that causes bed-head can also damage your hair follicles, leading to thinner, less healthy hair.
Cotton not only draws moisture from your hair but your skin as well, drying it out and nullifying the benefits of moisturising créme.
Silk breathes. It's a natural temperature regulator, so it's cooler in summer and doesn't sweat like satin and other man-made imitations. It is also hypoallergenic and doesn't create static electricity the way satin does. Satin may feel nice and soft in your hand, but after an 8 hour sleep your hair and facial skin can really feel the difference.
And that's the key ingredient to beauty sleep after all. SLIP pure silk pillow cases and sleep masks are good for your hair and skin, but more importantly they feel soft and wonderful, helping you get a full night of luxurious and truly relaxing sleep.
