It is simply the easiest and least time-consuming self-care routine for a busy life.
Silky smooth isn’t just an expression. According to beauty experts, silk helps keep your hair soft, moisturized, and tangle-free by its gentle texture and its non-moisture absorbing qualities. Cotton pillowcases bunch, knot, and tangle your hair; not to mention the intolerable static! But, on a soft silk pillowcase, hair will slide fluidly leading to significantly less damage.
Incorporate silk into your everyday routine and marvel at the benefits. When you wear silk pajamas (or sheets, if you prefer to ditch the pajamas altogether), the silk fabric adjusts to your body temperature leaving it cool all night and providing a thermal balance.
We also love silk for its anti-aging and rejuvenating properties. Unlike cotton, which absorbs your skin’s natural moisture, when you sleep on silk, your skin retains its moisture. So, if your skin is dry or flaky, or you are looking for a simple anti-aging solution, start sleeping on silk! Satisfy those dehydrated skin cells and let silk help you retain the natural moisture in your skin, rejuvenating your skin for less lines and more luminosity.
Silk protects your hair and skin naturally due to being composed of long, smooth, natural fibers that are tightly woven together. The tight weave helps decrease your skin and hair’s loss of moisture. Have sensitive skin? Try wearing more silk. It’s hypoallergenic and free of any potentially irritating added chemicals and naturally wards off various environmental allergens such as dust mites, mold, and fungus.
Deceptively delicate appearing, silk is incredibly strong. In fact, the strength of a single silk thread is equivalent to that of a steel wire with the same diameter. This strength means the fabric is durable and will retain its beauty for years. But for silk, strong doesn’t mean inflexible. This naturally strong fiber can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture yet remain dry to the tough. Even as it absorbs, it expands in size to create an opportunity for air circulation to begin the evaporation process. Imagine, a sexy, strong fabric that absorbs your perspiration while letting your skin breathe.
The National Center for Sleep Disorders Research at the National Institutes of Health reports that 30 to 40 percent of Americans have problems sleeping. And our bedding may have something to do with that. Typical cotton or polyester sheets can irritate your skin, bunch up, or invite dust mites — all of which will interfere with getting a good night’s sleep. Silk is smooth and hypoallergenic, and keeps you cool! So, make up your bed with silk sheets for the best night of sleep possible.
