If you haven't hopped on the silk pillowcase bandwagon it's officially time to climb aboard. While I prefer cotton sheets on our bed, I've been using this silk pillowcase for the past couple years and it's completely game-changing. I'm so committed to my silk pillowcases that I permanently keep one in my suitcase so I can put it on my hotel pillow when traveling. I know. What a weirdo.
But here's why: silk fibers are less absorbent than cotton and other fibers, so silk pillowcases help your skin retain moisture and nutrients from the skincare products you apply before bed. There's nothing worse than applying a bunch of pricey serums and moisturizers just to have 90% of it wipe off on your pillow at night. ALSO, unlike ordinary cotton pillowcases, smooth, slippery silk doesn’t stretch and tug on delicate facial skin and doesn’t pull and tangle your hair throughout the night. I'm telling you, the difference a silk pillowcase makes in reducing (often completely eliminating) bedhead is DRAMATIC, allowing you to maintain your hairstyle for much, much longer.
I love these silk pillowcases by Slip the best, and they now come in lots of colors so you can buy them to match your sheets!
