5 Beauty Benefits Of A Silk Pillowcase

5 benefits silk pillowcase

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

Prevents Sleep Creases & Wrinkles – Silk is such a smooth and luxurious fabric. It doesn’t tug at your skin like cotton. Less pulling and friction helps reduce strain on the skin, therefore minimizing those annoying morning sleep creases that us side and stomach sleepers get and ultimately preventing wrinkles
Keeps Your Skin Hydrated Naturally – Silk has one of the lowest absorption rates of any fabric. Its smooth, breathable texture pumps your skin with oxygen, while its tightly-woven fibers help keep moisture (and your skincare products) on your skin vs. absorbing into your pillow. Silk also has the benefit of amino acids. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase will help your skin stay healthy and smooth while reducing facial wrinkles. Cheaper than a face lift!

 

2. Your Hair Will Thank You For It

Frizz & Damage Free – You will notice right away how smooth and luxurious our 100% Pure Mulberry Silk is. Your locks will appreciate how gentle and soft the silk is too! Our June The Six silk pillowcase allows your hair to lay over this smooth surface with minimal snags, knots or tangles. With less friction, you will notice no more breakage or damage, less frizz, tangles and hair dents. Seems like a no-brainer right? Don’t just take our word for it.

3. Your Lash Extensions & Blowouts Will Last Longer

As your skin and hair become naturally healthier, you’ll find yourself needing fewer cosmetic products than before – not to mention the fact that any semi-permanent beauty treatments, such as eyelash extensions, will enjoy a longer life thanks to the reduced pull, friction and snagging sleeping on a silk pillowcase will ensure. The result? A freeing up of the purse strings for other essentials, such as that gorgeous dress you’ve had your eye on for a month (hey, no-one’s judging).Ok. I’m sold. Take me to buy now.

4. Break from allergies and chemicals

HypoAllergenic Powers – Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, which means that it is very rare that it causes any allergic reactions. This is because silk is free of any potentially irritating added chemicals and contains natural substances that ward off various environmental allergens (and resulting skin conditions), including dust mites, mold, and fungus.

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

The immediate comfort that June The Six silk gives you absolutely contributes to a quicker slumber and a more restful sleep.For the ultimate visit to dreamland, pair a sleep mask with your pillowcase!

 

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.
