Sleeping on a silk pillowcase has a wide range of benefits for your skin, your hair, and the quality of your sleep.
Still undecided about switching to silk? Here are 10 reasons why a silk pillowcase is a must-have accessory for 2021.
1. Hydrated skin
Silk fibres are significantly less absorbent than cotton, which helps your skin to retain its natural moisture and stay hydrated overnight.
Silk has a super soft texture which means it glides against your skin. The reduced friction of a silk pillowcase against your skin, compared to materials like cotton, prevents tugging on your skin during the night. This not only prevents creases forming on your face in the morning, but it can also help to reduce signs of wrinkles over time.
3. Maximise your overnight skincare routine
If you use overnight creams before sleeping, using a silk pillowcase is a must! As silk is significantly less absorbent than cotton, it will help keep any expensive overnight creams where they belong - on your face!
4. Great for sensitive skin
Endorsed by dermatologists, silk pillowcases have been shown to be great for sensitive skin as it is 100% natural, packed with essential amino acids and is naturally hypoallergenic, making it suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

5. Healthy hair
A traditional cotton pillowcase may feel soft, however its surface creates more friction against your hair than silk, which means that when it rubs on hair it can cause breakage and hair damage. Using a silk pillowcase will help to keep your hair smooth and prevent damage whilst you sleep.
6. Frizz-free hair
The reduced friction against your hair will also help to prevent frizz and flyaways. Silk pillowcases have even been shown to help your hairstyles last longer compared to cotton.
7. Keep your curls
If you have curly hair, a silk pillowcase is especially beneficial to help reduce frizz, to keep your hair hydrated and to keep your curls more defined whilst you sleep overnight.
The natural properties of silk make it effective at regulating body temperature and controlling moisture effectively. This increases the quality of your sleep in both hot and cold conditions. The fabric is breathable and provides a cool and dry night’s sleep.
9. Luxury comfort
The importance of getting a good night's sleep is often underestimated. A pure silk pillowcase will help you get better quality sleep – the feeling of silk against your skin is soft and soothing, providing the ultimate luxurious experience.
