We know that sleep is a crucial step in giving our bodies and skin time to reset. Traditionally we have used cotton pillowcases, which can draw moisture, oil and any topical products off the skin. Silk pillowcases are smoother.
I always sleep on silk so that my skin glides rather than drags across the fabric, reducing the chances of wrinkles – particularly those in the nasal labial fold between mouth and nose.
People are very rarely allergic to silk. 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).
Silk is easier on hair – it helps avoid tangles and breakage.
What I’ve learnt about beauty is that it’s not necessarily just about your face. Silk pillowcases keep your skin soft, they keep your hair soft, you sleep on them, you wake up and you look so refreshed. It’s really good for everything.

Silk doesn’t hold as much heat as cotton so it’s good for people with more sensitive skin who may suffer from Rosacea and is ideal for women going through menopause who are experiencing hot flushes. It also allows more moisture to be kept in the skin than with a cotton version due to its super fine weave, so it’s good for people with dehydration and skin dryness.
There is this correlation between the SMAS and sleep lines and it makes sense to sleep on the softest, most purest pillows and pillowcases available and that is silk. Sleeping on cotton is one of the five most causes for wrinkles.

Cotton sheets, but silk pillowcases, which are better and kinder to your face and skin.

Long the secret of film divas, silk pillowcases prevent facial skin from creasing during the night. Silk allows the skin to glide along the pillow so the face rests comfortably without placing pressure on creased skin, effectively ‘ironing in’ wrinkles.
The moisture pulled into a cotton pillowcase can draw in allergens and bacteria, causing damage and reactions to your hair and skin. Sleeping on a silk surface means less moisture will be taken from your skin and hair.

Silk pillowcases are a great way to wake up creaseless in the morning. The smooth texture of silk is gentler than cotton and may help prevent sleep wrinkles, as well as reduce skin irritation. Its tightly woven fibers also don’t draw out moisture and natural oils as cotton does, leaving your skin better hydrated.
You can avoid waking up with bed head by sleeping on silk pillowcases, cotton causes more friction and disrupts the hair cuticles.
