I recently had the opportunity to try out a 100% silk pillow case from ‘Silk Perfect’. These bring a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘beauty sleep’ apart from adding a little bit of luxury to your snoozing they promise to keep you looking younger too according to an ancient beauty secret!
So how do they work? Traditional cotton, linen or polyester pillowcases have a high absorbency rate stealing moisture to leave the skin in desperate need of a thirst quench. When combined with humidity and too much sun exposure skin can become dry and aggravated. SilkPerfect 100% put silk pillowcases proactively retain moisture to leave skin refreshed and hydrated. In addition, traditional pillowcases wick away product on the skin meaning your after-sun products may not be working to their best ability. By preventing osmosis SilkPerfect keeps product on the skin helping you to make the most of your slumber.
Dried out skin is naturally prone to ageing, contributing to the formation of lines and creases. Unlike traditional cotton pillows SilkPerfect pillowcases proactively retain moisture, while the fine soft nature of the fibres provides a smooth base for you to rest your head. Ideal for helping to keep skin moisturised, preventing that dried out sallow complexion. The silk can also prevent ‘bed hair’, frizz and split ends.
I have been testing out these pillow cases for a good month or so now and whilst I haven’t noticed any major differences in my skin hydration (not that my skin is particularly dry at the moment), I definitely have seen an improvement in my locks! I usually have really bad matted frizzy ‘bed hair’ hair on a morning and have noticed that isn’t a problem anymore since using these pillows. I love the luxurious silky feel, my normal traditional cotton pillowcases there is no comparison now! The new Silk Pur case has cotton backing so means the pillows don’t slide off the bed.
The Silk Perfect Púr pillow case can be ordered from the Silk Perfect website and it's currently on a buy one get one free offer so you can get two for £20 – they are definitely worth the investment! I'm definitely adding a couple on my Christmas list this year.
