Can changing your pillowcase to a satin one help you sleep better and be kinder to your face and hair?
We spend around a third of our lives sleeping and recent studies have revealed that our bedding, particularly pillowcases, may be causing wrinkles, facial creases, frizzy hair, and split ends.
“Most people choose cotton pillowcases as they have heard this is the most breathable, however they do not work well with the skin. The highly absorbent properties of cotton will cause your skin to stick to the pillowcase, which can lead to creases in the skin and permanent wrinkles over time.
The best pillowcases reduce friction between your skin and the pillowcase and also promote constant air flow on both sides of the textile – such as Satin. This allows air to flow and deliver
consistent amounts of oxygen to the skin. Oxygen is necessary for skin to repair itself overnight.
Furthermore, consistent airflow helps to regulate the temperature of the skin and prevent uncomfortable sweating. When facial skin excessively sweats during the night, it is more prone
to sleep lines due to increased friction as well as acne breakouts due to clogged pores.
Satin pillowcases are nonabsorbent, helping your skin maintain maximum moisture. It also prevents wrinkles, allowing you to wake up with smooth, clear and flawless skin every morning. Satin pillowcases also provide a smoother surface for your hair strands, which reduces matting, breakage, tangling and snagging. It will also reduce hair shedding as tossing and turning at night can be damaging to the hair follicle, ultimately resulting in more frizz and less shine. With a satin pillowcase, hair can easily glide across the fabric, preventing hair fall. It also benefits those who suffer from dry, brittle, frizzy and static hair as satin does not absorb moisture from your locks, unlike cotton alternatives.”
I have been sleeping on a pillowcase from www.makeupbox-ldn.co.uk for the last week and priced from just £12.99 for a single pillowcase, and £24.99 for a pack of two I really urge you to try them!
I noticed when I wake up I don’t have bedding lines all over my face as I used to and also if I go to bed with damp hair its not a complete birds nest the next day! I have really noticed the difference in my morning bed hair!
Have you tried a satin pillowcase?
