First of all, we have to apologize……
This post may not be exactly what you were thinking. THIS kind of pillow talk refers to the advantages of sleeping on a silk pillowcase! This has been an EcoGenics family beauty ritual that has been passed down from generation to generation – read below to find out more.
It’s likely that this may be the first time you’re hearing this, and that your usual bedtime routine would end with you laying on a regular cotton pillow case. However, switching to a silk pillowcase has many benefits and seriously enhances your skin and hair characteristics. Let’s start with the basics. By simply introducing a silk pillowcase into your nightly routine, your hair will immediately reap benefits as it glides over the smooth silk fibers, limiting the effects of a night spent tossing and turning.
Not only does silk benefit your hair, but it has numerous benefits when in contact with the skin. Silk has a remarkable way of maintaining the moisture in your skin, leaving your face hydrated and refreshed in the morning and reduces the likely hood that you will wake up with “sleep wrinkles’. It is well- known, that if your skin is hydrated the appearance of wrinkles is reduced. Plus, this extra moisture retention can be a useful beauty tip for those who suffer from dry and flaky skin.
Silk is also an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin and allergies. Because of the small areas between the individual silk threads, there is not much space for dust and other allergens to sit and irritate your skin, eyes, or nasal passages. Additionally, the smooth texture of silk allows many of the things that may hide in traditional cotton pillowcases to simply glide away, leaving you to sleep and breathe easier through the night.
Silk is also free of any potentially irritating chemicals. It contains natural substances that ward off various environmental allergens (and resulting skin conditions), including dust mites, mold, and fungus.
Finally, silk is a temperature regulator. Silk is a natural heat regulator which helps ensure a perfect body temperature is maintained while you sleep. Silk keeps you cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cool. Women going through menopause and suffering from night sweats can benefit immensely from sleeping on silk.
