You know when you wake up with a big crease mark down your face? Yeah, your pillowcase is actually to blame for that. When you toss and turn in your sleep, the friction between your skin and the cotton creates crease lines. Silk is much smoother so there’s less friction, less tugging on the skin and fewer wrinkles.
This is why we’re investing in a silk pillowcase
Sleep is the most important part of any self-care routine. You can have a religious schedule of acids, masks and creams and, without enough sleep, your skin will still look dull. We don’t call it beauty sleep for no reason, guys. With no early morning commute, we’re spending more time sleeping than ever – bar the odd drunken Zoom call that lasts until 3 am (I now understand why pubs have closing times). So, now seems like a pretty good time to invest in a silk pillowcase – but what are the benefits?
