5 Reasons Why Silk Should Be on Your Bed Right Now
We’re all familiar with silk, how luxurious it looks and how expensive it can be. However, if you can swing it, it’s definitely worth it to splurge on silk pillowcases, sheets, or pajamas (or maybe even all three). Your face and body will thank you, and you’ll get some better beauty sleep as a result. Here’s five reasons why silk should be a mainstay in your bedroom:
It Can Cause Fewer Wrinkles
When you’re in bed, your face come in contact with your pillowcase more than anything. With cotton pillowcases (especially those with lower thread counts), there’s more frictions between your face and the pillowcase, which can develop wrinkles. Silk reduces that friction.
It Can Help Control Your Bed Head
Waking up with hair that’s a mangy mess doesn’t make beauty sleep seem all that beautiful. Like it does to your skin, the smoothness of silk reduces the friction between it and your hair. This leads to less breakage, and hair that’s more manageable when you wake up. Essentially, fewer bad hair days.
It Helps Keep Skin Moisturized
As a natural fiber, silk contains some of the same amino acids found in popular hair care products and skin moisturizers. Try sleeping in some nice silk pajamas, and see how your skin feels within weeks of making the switch.
It can Regulate Temperature
Silk is a naturally temperature-regulating fabric, meaning it can keep you cooler during warm/hot spring and summer nights, or warmer during cooler nights in the fall and winter. If it’s especially cold, try pairing silk sheets with a warm comforter.
Sleep tight knowing that, being hypoallergenic, silk is resistant to dust mites, fungus, and mold, something that can occur within pillows and mattresses.
