A good friend sent me this blog post idea and upon further research I decided to share my findings with you. Joyce P. has been doing this for a while and even travels with her satin/silk pillow. Which one of the benefits caught my attention? Read through and I bet you can guess.
SMOOTHER SKIN – Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can result in sleep lines on your face. If you switch to sleeping on a satin pillowcase you can avoid the lines and wrinkles because the satin allows your face to slide on the pillow.
SOFTER SKIN – Cotton pillowcases can rob moisture from your face. You spend hundreds of dollars on a night-time skin ritual and its being absorbed by your cotton pillow case. As a result, your skin can become drier. Switch to satin and see how much softer your skin will feel.
SHINIER HAIR – Can a shinier, smoother pillowcase actually give you shinier, smoother hair? Yes! Just like cotton pillowcases absorb moisture from your skin, they also absorb moisture from your hair. This can leave you with dull, frazzled hair. Who wants that?
BLOWOUTS LAST LONGER – If you have had your hair styled and want it to last a few days, your best bet is to sleep on a satin pillowcase. Satin pillowcases allow your hair to slip around without getting tangled up. This will help your blowout last longer. Since I only wash my hair every 3 days or so this is a huge benefit! And you will wake up with that smoking’ hot bed head look. Meow!
Still need some convincing? Check out this article in Huffington Post. They even go so far as to recommend Mulberry Silk when buying your silk pillowcase. Not sure you want to commit to the change? Macy’s has a white sale going on right now and you can find lots of great bedding with big discounts. Bed, Bath and Beyond has some great options too. Additionally, I always love shopping the Nordstrom (20% OFF bedding SALE through January 25) and Neiman Marcus home departments. My personal favorite is this one that is 100% pure silk. Purr!
Thank you Joyce P. for letting me share your little secret with my readers. Happy Monday! xoxo- Tanya
