The Benefits Of Sleeping On A Silk Pillowcase

weekly wellness challenge: silk pillow case
This week, I want to make the challenge extremely simple, so I’ll get right to the point: Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase is not ideal. Not only can it cause allergens from the material, but it’s also tough on your skin + hair. And for the amount of time we put our face and hair into contact with our pillowcases, we should be using something that’s not harmful, no?

You know how after sleeping you can see the lines on your face from a cotton pillowcase? Over time, the creases formed by cotton eventually sink into your skin and will stay put. Bottom line is, cotton cases are doing you no favors whatsoever.

Challenge: Switch to a silk pillowcase

How easy is that? I personally love this one, and even travel with it now.

The natural properties of silk aren’t rough on your hair and can lead to less split ends, static, and breakage. Silk also helps blowouts last longer!

Skin wise, sleeping on silk can prevent redness or rosacea because it’s less abrasive vs. cotton and it’s hypoallergenic. Silk also helps to keep your skin hydrated since it absorbs less moisture. And again, LESS WRINKLES people.

Plus, it feels super lux. Even more reason to get proper shut-eye!

How easy of a challenge is that?
