Benefits of Silk, satin, and cotton pillow cases. Which one to use

Sleep is an important part of our lives, and we should all make sure to get enough of it. But what if you're not getting a good night's sleep because of your pillowcase? Believe it or not, the type of fabric your pillowcase is made out of can have a big impact on how well you sleep. We will take a look at the benefits of silk, satin, and cotton pillowcases, and help you decide which one is right for you.



Let’s Talk about Silk Benefits

Silk quickly became popular for its beauty and versatility. It can be woven into incredibly fine fabrics, making it ideal for clothing such as nightgowns and lingerie. It can also be used for bedding, as silk cloths are smooth and gentle on the skin. Today, silk continues to be prized for its many qualities, and it remains one of the most popular fabrics in the world.


1) Prevent Frizzy Hair: Thanks to silk's super smooth texture, hair glides over it without any friction. This means you'll be less likely to wake up with frizzy hair or bedhead.

2) Keep Skin Hydrated: Silk's smoothness means it's less apt to absorb moisture from the skin, keeping skin nice and hydrated without pulling out it's valuable moisture.

3) Keep Hair Healthy: If you’re looking for the best way to keep your hair moisturized and healthy, look no further. Cotton is more porous than Silk so it will actually hold onto all that moisture from being applied on its surface which can lead not only to dryness but also damage!

4) Regulate Temperature: hard to sleep because of the heat at night? To stay cool all night long, silk is the perfect bedding option. Silk wicks moisture as time goes on - thanks in part due to its thirsty nature-silk fibres is inherently temperature regulating!

5) Helps to Prevent Wrinkles: Silk pillowcases can decrease wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin's hydration. 

6) Organic: Organic silk pillowcases are an eco-friendly alternative to conventional materials. They're also much softer and more hatched than their chemical counterparts!


Cotton: An Old Acquaintance

Cotton is one of the oldest textiles in existence, dating back 8 thousand years to India. The Spaniards discovered it when they arrived on American soil- specifically Peru where its people cultivated and made clothes with cotton fibres! Cotton is convenient for its versatility and multiple characteristics.


1) Soft to the touch: Cotton is gentle on your skin. This is especially important for people who have sensitive skin or who are prone to breakouts.

2) Freshness: Breathable, making it more comfortable to sleep on in warm weather. This can be a real lifesaver if you live in a hot climate or if you tend to get sweaty at night.

3) Hypoallergenic: They're ideal for people with allergies or asthma. This means you're less likely to wake up feeling stuffy or sneezing.

4) Helps With Mites Allergies: Cotton is also resistant to dust mites, making it a good choice for people who suffer from allergies related to dust mites.

5) Easy to Wash: Cotton pillowcases are easy to care for and keep clean. They can be machine washed and tumble dried, so you don't have to worry about delicate care instructions.

Shiny Satin!

There are many different kinds of satin weaves, but they all have one thing in common- a soft and shiny finish that you can see through to your skin. This makes satin perfect for special occasions when it's important to look good on the outside but also feel great while resting your head on it!


1) Prevent Hair Loss: Dry hair is prone to breakage. Healthy, shiny hair is something we all want to have. Satin can prevent breakage and even avoid future losses!

2) Look After Brows and Lashes: The harshness of fabrics on your face while you sleep can lead to the loss of hairs from eyebrows and eyelashes. Satin is a fabric that helps protect fragile eyelashes, so it's important for health reasons as well!

3) Better Skin Look: It helps your pores to breathe more effectively, helping minimize pores, reducing irritation and improving firmness.

4) Shiny Hair: Tossing and turning while sleeping generates friction and static creating breakage and split ends, but not with the softness of satin!

5) Reduces Wrinkles: Silk can let you move freely without friction on your skin. This will help to reduce wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, and mouth while you sleep!
