The Best-Kept Beauty Secret - Sleeping on Organic Peace Silk
Since launching our Organic Peace Silk Pillowcase early this year, I've been trialling the peace silk pillowcases, and I'm so delighted to say it has been a game-changer to my sleep, skin and hair! Yes, I'm a convert, and I confess it's hard to go to sleep without it now. Who would have known, this simple self-care step involves no cosmetics, take zero time and effort, but offers amazing 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.
6 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. Prevents Frizzy Hair & Split Ends
The friction elicited between your hair, and a cotton pillowcase can encourage hair frizz, knots, tangles, and bedhead– worst of all – hair breakage. With peace silk pillowcases, just like your skin, your hair can glide across the pillowcase without becoming frizzy, which helps prevent split ends, and it also helps preserve your hairstyle! I am always amazed after sleeping that my hairs remain in shape and needs little fixing or combing in the morning.
3. Prevents Dry Skin
Unlike standard cotton pillowcases that leach moisture and hydration from your skin, silk is kind on the skin. It helps to maintain skin's hydration level, thus preserving skin health. While cotton pillowcases can absorb all the skincare products you have so meticulously selected to remain on your face overnight, silk does not do this. This will be essential to your anti-ageing efforts.
4. 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.
5. Suitable for Sensitive Skin
Peace Silk Pillowcase is hypoallergenic, using only the finest materials and non-toxic dyes. It's soft and delicate texture is non-abrasive and smooth. This minimises any possible skin irritation or redness caused by regular pillowcases. While other materials such as cotton may absorb oils, sweat and dust, resulting in more frequent breakouts and other skin sensitivity issues, silk will be much helpful in your efforts to combat unwanted breakouts.
6. Better Quality Sleep
For those who struggle with overheating at night, peace silk is naturally cooling and can help to regulate body temperature. Unlike cotton, which can leave you feeling sweaty and hot, silk helps to wick away moisture. This keeps your face fresh and dry throughout the night. Studies have shown that keeping the room at a cooler temperature at night time can help you achieve better sleep. So, if you struggle with becoming overly hot, switching to silk can help you achieve better quality beauty sleep.
