You may have heard that a silk pillowcase has a plethora of beauty benefits, from a better night sleep, to keeping our beautiful blowouts in tact and our skin extra soft. I bought my first silk pillowcase in Singapore after my dermatologist told me that it was one of her anti-aging secrets… The bottom line is that once you go silk, there’s no turning back.
One of the most important yet underrated tools in your beauty regime, the best part about it is that there is absolutely nothing you need to do – other than settling down into the sweetest of slumbers. Yup, that’s right; while you sleep, the silk pillowcase in Singapore is doing all the hard work for you. Sound too good to be true? We’re listing 5 reasons why we’re obsessed with them and why we’ll never go back to cotton:
1. Great for your skin
2. Your Hair Will Thank You For It
3. Your Lash Extensions & Blowouts Will Last Longer
4. Break from allergies and chemicals
In addition, silk limits our exposure to toxins and harmful chemicals. Silk is produced from domesticated silk worms that are bred and raised in captivity. They have no predators to defend against and are pampered throughout their life, helping to produce a fine silk fiber with little-to-no chemical exposure. In contrast, many fabrics, such as cotton, are produced from chemically intensive crops that require pesticides, herbicides and other chemical treatments before making it to your bed sheets.
Given how many chemicals we come in contact with throughout the day—from perfume, to shampoo, to cosmetics, to cleaning products—it is good to know that we can at least spend a third of our days toxin free.
5. Good Night Sleep
About June The Six Silk Pillowcases
Toxin-FREE. Our partner factories have undergone extensive testing to be sure their products are free from more than 300 harmful substances , including toxins and irritants.
Both sides are silk. Some companies, whose prices seem too good to be true, actually sell pillowcases with only one side that is silk.
Highest quality, long strand mulberry silk. It’s the smoothest and most luxurious silk you can find. Remember, not all silk is created equal. Moreover, it’s essential that the pillowcase is 100% silk, because man-made is a no-go!
Affordable. Our 22 momme range allows anyone to buy a silk pillowcase, regardless of your budget.
Machine washable. The last thing you want to do is have to dry clean or hand wash your bedding. Just remember to never put it in the dryer. It may cause silk to shrink. Tumbling in a dryer also causes friction between the dryer drum and the garment, which can cause the threads to break or leave white streaks on garment. For best results, hang dry silk to maintain its shape.
