Dermatologen, beautyexperts en haarstylisten raden al jarenlang slapen op zijde aan omdat het goed is voor je haar, huid en gezondheid

DENNIS GROSS, DERMATOLOGIST

Steeds weer je gezicht op een katoenen hoofdkussen drukken veroorzaakt trauma aan de huid. Na verloop van tijd kan dit trauma door de wrijving verergeren en blijvende rimpels veroorzaken wanneer het collageen afbreekt.

KEVIN MURPHY – HAIRSTYLIST

Anyone who loves his or her hair needs a silk pillowcase. I always recommend a silk pillowcase to preserve your hairstyle the cooling feel of silk next to your skin is luxurious but the benefits for your hair are amazing. It’s like someone is gently caring for your hair while you sleep.

DR MARYAM ZAMANI, MZ SKIN

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’ve noticed that I’ve not only gotten fewer pillow lines but it’s better for my hair too.

DR. MANISH SHAH, PLASTIC SURGEON

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.

I sleep on a silk pillowcase every night. I even take one with me when I travel! Silk prevents breakage and friction while helping your hairstyles to last longer, so you don’t have to wash your hair as much.

Naturally hypoallergenic, silk helps to regulate body temperature, keeping skin calm, cosseted and comfortable.

GOOD HOUSE KEEPING

It’s also better for the skin because the material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles.

STYLIST ELLIN LAVAR, INSTYLE

Whether your hair is straight or curly, high quality silk pillowcases reduce friction, so your trip to the hairdresser lasts longer. Silk keeps straight hair straighter and blow-dries last longer.

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.

DR. SOBEL, NY MAGAZINE’S TOP DERMATOLOGIST FOR 5 YEARS IN A ROW

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 SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL

Ultimately, aging gracefully is something we’re all striving for so buy a damn silk pillowcase and thank me later.

Silk can form a barrier layer, helping retain moisture and possibly having a plumping, anti-wrinkle effect.

DERMATOLOGIST DR. STEGMAN

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.

EMMA HOBSON, EDUCATION MANAGER FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DERMAL INSTITUTE AND DERMALOGICA

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.

DR ELLEN MARMUR, LEADING DERMATOLOGIST MARMURMEDICAL

The silk fiber slides rather than pulling against the face and absorbing your night creams, like traditional cotton pillowcases. Not only am I personally a huge fan of sleeping on silk, but I am constantly retrieving my stolen pillows from my kids’ rooms as the love the cool, ultra-silky finish on their skin when they sleep!

SOPHIE TURNER

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.

NEAL B. SCHULTZ, MD, NEW YORK CITY DERMATOLOGIST

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).
