You simply can’t put a price on good sleep! Sleeping (or lack thereof) is one of those experiences that can completely turn your day around, switch your mindset, and transform your life. We all need sleep. It’s not a luxury but a bare necessity. So when I learned that using a silk pillowcase has the potential to enhance my sleeping experience while also working as beauty treatment every night, to say I was intrigued would be an utter understatement! It might sound a little extravagant and for years, it did. At least for me. Despite hearing lots of celebrities and friends alike rave about their silk pillowcases, it was still hard to justify paying that much for what at the of the day is just a pillowcase! But for my birthday this past summer, one of my dearest friends surprised me with a SLIP Silk Pillowcase! I immediately put it to the test and now that I have used it for almost half a year, I’m ready to address the obvious: can silk pillow cases really enhance sleep, up your beauty game and are they really worth the money?
There are several reasons why the SLIP Silk Pillowcase has been deemed a game changer:
Enhances your sleeping experience
SLIP Silk Pillowcases are made from the highest grade long fiber mulberry silk, with just the right thickness and using non-toxic dyes. The silk fabric stays cool to the touch and feels soothing on the skin throughout the night. With my traditional cotton pillowcase, flipping it over a few times a night was standard! My cheeks would begin warming up and it was difficult to relax. The cooling sensation from the silk fabric helps ease my mind and calm my senses, thus it becomes easier to slip into a deep, restful sleep.
No more bed head mornings!
It’s a known fact that ordinary pillowcases can cause hair to pull and tangle throughout the night, leading to bed head in the morning and potentially damaging the hair! We’ve all been there! I can’t even begin to tell you how many mornings in any given week I’d be running late trying to tame the mane! I have noticed that since sleeping on a silk pillowcase, my hair is less of a tangled mess in the morning and appears shinier. While traditional pillowcases can strip hair of moisture and essential oils, the silk version reduces friction, can lock in moisture and prevent further damage to the hair follicles including split ends.
The SLIP Silk Pillowcase is also advertised as offering antiaging benefits. Silk fibers are significantly less absorbent than many other fibers (cotton included), thus helping the skin retain its moisture and preventing skincare and haircare products from ending up on your pillow! I can’t say that I noticed my skin is more hydrated in the morning because I’m using a silk pillowcase, but since I started sleeping with a SLIP Silk Pillowcase I have noticed that I no longer wake up with pillow marks which over time can lead to wrinkles. Since the skin glides over the soft silk fibers, friction is reduced thus stretching and tugging of the delicate facial skin is minimized.
Sephora, the Dermstore and Nordstrom are all major retailers that carry these SLIP Silk pillowcases and often times offer a discount on the purchase. I highly recommend checking them out! It is the one purchase that can enhance your sleep, improve your skin and help your hair while you sleep. As I mentioned earlier in the post, the SLIP Pillowcase I have was generously gifted to me as a birthday present. But since, I have purchased several of these myself as gifts for family members and friends. Because what better gift to give someone than that of great sleep (with beauty benefits no less) every.single.night!
