Last week I was in getting my annual 4 units of Botox (2 in each eye… it’s maintenance early!) at Skin Day Spa in Houston – and we were talking about other ways to protect my skin from aging outside of creams and Botox.
How do you sleep?
I sleep face down or on one side – well apparently that can CAUSE more wrinkles!! The ideal sleeping position is face up! Who’d have thought it was that important?!
Your pillow can also CAUSE wrinkles!! Honestly, who knew?! Apparently silk pillow can help reduce split ends, frizzy hair and PREVENTS wrinkles it’s better for your skin!!
So what kind of silk pillowcase?
It’s essential that the pillowcase be 100% silk, because synthetic man made fibers are a no go for beauty and skin. Look for a long strand mulberry silk with a traditional charmeuse weave – this is the smoothest and silkiest pillowcase around.
I got mine at Amazon for $22!!
This pillowcase (like most silk pillowcases) is hypoallergenic. The item description told me that it’s supposed to minimize wrinkles and eliminate bed hair (i have this!!).
BENEFITS OF SLEEPING ON A SILK PILLOWCASE
• MY SKIN LOOKED BRIGHTER AND MORE RADIANT
• I WOKE UP WITH SEXY HAIR AND THAT TOUSLED BED HEAD LOOK IS ALWAYS IN AND I DEFINITELY WAS FEELING MYSELF
• SILK IS KNOWN TO CAUSE LESS BREAKAGE OF HAIR (WHICH CAN CAUSE SPLIT ENDS) BECAUSE IT IS NATURALLY A SMOOTHER SURFACE. I GUESS THEY DON’T CALL IT “SILKY SMOOTH” FOR NOTHING.
• SILK RETAINS MOISTURE, AND THIS CAN BE GREAT IF YOU TEND TO HAVE DRIER, MORE BRITTLE HAIR LIKE ME. MY HAIR IS DEFINITELY PRONE TO BREAKAGE AND WHEN I WAS SLEEPING ON COTTON I NOTICED I HAD MORE HAIRS ON MY PILLOW WHEN I WOKE UP.
Being able to reduce your split ends while you sleep is something I can definitely get on board with because honestly in today’s day and age who doesn’t have split ends.
The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface, can help reduce friction which in turn reduces split ends. For your hair, it truly does pay to sleep on a silk pillowcase.
After sleeping on a silk pillowcase for the last week I am honestly never going back because it feels like sleeping in the lap of luxury and I now refuse to travel anywhere without it – I’m off to Alaska next week and it will be coming!!
You already know that hotel sheets and pillowcases are a cess pool of germs and god knows what!.
I couldn’t recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase more honestly and since I started my skin is clearer and soother and my hair looks great when I wake up, so get your’s today and let me know how it changes your beauty game!
