Why Your Beauty Routine Needs a Silk Pillowcase

A silk pillowcase may sound like the ultimate luxury addition to your bed, but aside from their super chic look, they have incredible hair and skincare benefits. From brighter skin to tamed hair come 7 AM, their benefits go far beyond your average beauty gimmick and it’s safe to say we’re obsessed.

With the average person spending around a third of their life in bed, it’s important to invest in quality bedding to optimise your quality of sleep. Alongside the right linen, add a touch of silk to your bed to ensure you wake up looking and feeling your best.

We love Slip’s silk pillowcases; the ultimate in skin-saving luxury.

Redefining the meaning of ‘beauty sleep’

Slip’s pillowcases are made from the finest 100% mulberry silk. The true quality means each case is anti-ageing, anti-sleep crease and anti-bed head. 

Traditional cotton pillowcases often absorb beauty products (think serums ladies) and cause friction between your skin and hair. A silk pillowcase, however, doesn’t retain any moisture so it ensures your most loved beauty buys to stay put.

They can also adjust your body temperature to ensure you stay cool and comfortable throughout the night. With benefits as good as this, it’s easy to see why Slip is loved by celeb hairstylists, dermatologists and beauty experts around the world.

Can a silk pillowcase really benefit me?

The simple answer – yes! If you’re looking for smoother hair in the morning, a brighter complexion and hydrated skin, a silk pillowcase is for you.

Alongside their incredible beauty benefits, sleeping on silk is hypoallergenic, meaning you can keep any nasty dust mites, damp or other allergens at bay.

And did we mention that Slip’s pillowcases are luxuriously soft and feel amazing on the skin? There’s nothing better than relaxing at home after a long day at work. A nice hot bath, fresh sheets, and a silk pillowcase is our version of true #selfcare.

Complete the look with a matching eye mask and you may never leave your bed again…

Anti bed-head

Ever woken up with frizzy hair beyond taming after a restless night of tossing and turning? Yep, us too.

Rather than battling with a tangled mane in the morning, prevent split ends by using a luxury silk pillowcase. Anti-bed head at its finest.

Since silk does not conduct static electricity, the fibres help protect hair and ensure any products (such as leave-in conditioner, hair masks and serum) are absorbed into your hair, not your pillow.
