Organic Peace Silk Pillowcase Beauty Benefits for Skin and Hair
Since launching our Organic Peace Silk Pillowcase early this year, I've been trialling it, and I'm so delighted to say it has been a game-changer to my sleep, skin and hair. Our customers love it too! I confess it's hard to go to sleep without it now. This simple self-care step involves no cosmetics, take zero time and effort, but offers fantastic benefits.
I only wished I knew this secret sooner! I want to share the benefits with you so more people can appreciate the inherent quality of silk fibres and look after their health, beauty and psychological well-being, starting with a good night's beauty sleep.
10 Benefits for Sleeping on Organic Peace Silk:
1. Prevents Wrinkles
With a peace silk pillowcase, your skin glides across the pillowcase so your skin does not get "crushed wrinkles" like it would with a cotton or other material pillowcase. Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.
2. Keep Skin Cool
Silk is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator. Silk aids the body retain heat in cold weather, and excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping your body maintain a natural, comfortable temperature for sleep.
3. Keep Skin Hydrated
Unlike standard cotton pillowcases, that absorbs moisture (and skincare products) from your skin. Silk is less porous and keeps moisture where it should be. It helps to maintain skin's hydration level, thus preserving skin health.
4. Silk is Hypoallergenic
It does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellent, so there's less chance your pillowcase harbouring harmful germs, its ideal for people with sensitive skin.
5. Reduce Skin Redness and Irritation
The soft and delicate texture is non-abrasive and smooth. It minimises any possible skin irritation or redness caused by regular pillowcases.
6. Reduce Breakouts
Natural silk fibre does not clog pores. While other materials such as cotton may absorb oils, sweat and dust, resulting in more frequent breakouts and other skin sensitivity issues, silk is more helpful in your efforts to combat unwanted breakouts. The smoother, tightly woven fabric is softer on your skin and causes less friction and rubbing that can exacerbate an already delicate situation.
7. Regenerate your skin
Silk contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen, which helps to speed up the metabolism of skin cells while you sleep.
8. Promotes Shiny Hair
Regular pillowcases tend to leach colour and lustre from vibrant, shiny hair. Your hair will glide over soft silk, maintaining all your natural hair-loving hydration, keeping hair sleek and shiny. Silk will also help preserve your hairstyle far better than cotton will. It is great for texture and curly hair.
9. Reduce split ends - By not conducting static electricity, sleeping on silk reduces hair breakage whilst helping your hair to maintain proper moisture balance.
10. Prevent frizzy hair - where cotton can snag hair and mess it up into a nest of tangles overnight. Silk's super smooth texture, hair glides over it without any friction which means you'll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair, tangles, or bedhead.
What's more? Unlike conventional silk, our organic peace silk is cruelty-free, and GOTS certified. Meaning, it is protective of animal welfare and produced without the use of any nasty or harmful fertiliser, chemicals and heavy metals. So, you can rest peacefully and conscious-free.
