The Beauty Sleep Benefits of a Silk Pillowcase
Think supermodels and sexy, big-screen sirens are the only ones who magically wake up looking impossibly refreshed and rejuvenated? Keep dreaming!
It’s no surprise we spend a third of our lives sleeping. After all, it's during this peaceful bodily function that our bodies relinquish the day’s worries and woes and drift into that timeless space to recuperate, repair, recharge, and restore – both physically and mentally. Basically, your body begins the night shift, seeking to repair the damage of the day, build complexion-pluming collagen, and re-boot the integrity of our body’s most vital, fundamental functions. It is also the time where our most precious aesthetics, including skin and hair, go into full recovery mode, allowing us to wake up feeling and looking youthful and beautiful. However, for many, that may seem like a pipe dream. If you’re not clocking quality Zzzz’s and waking up to a matted, messy mane with tell-tale wrinkles and crinkles etched from your cheek to your chin, it’s time to end the nightmare and step up your beauty sleep game with a 100% mulberry silk pillowcase.
Adding a Blissy silk pillowcase to your anti-aging arsenal is sure to give you the skin and hair of your wildest dreams! Cozy up to these tried-and-true beauty benefits of sleeping on silk and kick your cotton cases to the curb once and for all:
Keep Your Cool
Snoozing on silk helps regulate your body’s temperature, keeping it cool and comfortable, which induces deep sleep for a truly restorative and interrupted slumber.
A Real Wrinkle Warrior
The smoothness of silk’s unparalleled texture allows your skin to gently slide across the fabric without pulling or tugging at delicate skin tissue. No more jigsaw puzzle-esque, peculiar patterns etched on your face or neck come morning time.
Like your skin, the smoothness of the silk doesn’t snag or “grab” at strands, preventing breakage, split ends, and brittleness. Silk pillowcases are strand-savers for processed hair or those with pricey hair extensions because there is virtually no friction between strands and the silk. No more naughty knots.
In the Nap of Luxury
Undoubtedly, you’ll instantly feel like a princess once your pretty head touches a silk-encased pillow at the end of a long, tiring day. There is something exquisitely luxurious about sleeping upon silk. And, if you feel like a princess, you’re sure to sleep like one. So, spoil yourself to sleep – and to silky, shiny strands and gorgeous, glowing skin.
You can rest easy about your dream creams and pricey potions staying on your skin throughout the entire night. Unlike traditional cotton cases that literally suck the moisture, along with everything else, from your skin’s surface, the refined, silk fabric helps retain and balance your skin’s much-need moisture levels, while allowing all your favorite products to work hard during the night shift.
Mulberry silk is the finest, most sumptuous silk money can buy and is the only fabric that inherently doesn’t harbor dust mites, mold, allergens, or fungus due to its hypoallergenic properties. A germophobe’s dream come true.
Bye-Bye Bed Head
Skip time-consuming trips to the salon by sleeping on silk. You’ll keep your blowout bouncy and beautiful for days longer, while preventing creases and crinkles to take shape during the night. Save your beautiful blowout, braids, beachy waves, and other salon-status styles with a silk pillowcase.
No Chemical Exposure
Dozing off on silk exponentially reduces your exposure to chemical-laden undesirables due to silk’s fastidious production process. Blissy bedtime products employ pure silk produced from domesticated mulberry silk worms that are specially bred and raised in a protected environment under exacting, controlled conditions. These harvested, pampered silk worms never have to fend off predators, so the integrity of their silk is never compromised or exposed to unwanted substances. Most fabrics on the market are produced from chemical-laden crops that require a plethora of pesticides and other unseemly treatments before they make it into your linen closet.
Dream beautifully, Blissy babes!
