You may have noticed that we’ve recently added the Slip™ collection to our website, and that may have left you wondering: “what in the world does a pillowcase have to do with my beauty routine?”
Well...everything. Here’s why:
Celebrity hairstylists, dermatologists, and beauty experts around the world swear by the benefits of silk for your face and hair. Dr. Dennis Gross, a world-renowned dermatologist and founder of Dennis Gross Skincare, explains that “silk does not tug on delicate skin, nor result in sleep creases”. We’re here for it!
In fact, silk is the strongest and most breathable of natural fibres. It is also a natural temperature regulator, which means it helps the body retain heat in cold weather (and vice versa, repel heat in warm weather). This will help your body maintain a comfortable, natural temperature as you sleep (no more flipping the pillow to the cold side!).
If you aim for the average 8 hours of sleep per night, this means you spend approximately 2920 hours per year resting your face on a pillowcase. You definitely want to rethink its quality!
Silk has become a skincare favourite as it is hypoallergenic, meaning it does not attract dust mites and it is a natural fungal repellant—making it an ideal pillowcase option for people who suffer from various types of acne. Unlike cotton pillowcases, silk’s smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, or other forms of inflammation.
Switching to silk sheets, a silk pillowcase, and even silk hair elastics also greatly benefits your hair.
As silk does not conduct static electricity, sleeping on silk fabric will reduce hair breakage. If you use a sleep mask, you may want to consider swapping for a silk-lined one as it will be gentler on your lashes (and lash extensions!).
Slip™ products are made with Slipsilk™, a fabric that has been developed and refined by experts for over ten years in order to provide the ultimate combination of softness, thickness, shine, and durability.
In laboratory testing, Slipsilk™ was shown to absorb significantly less face cream and create 43% less friction compared to readily available cotton pillowcases. This means they help your skin retain moisture, all while keeping your valuable face and hair products where they belong.
Slipsilk™ is specially-commissioned––which means you won’t find it anywhere else––and it is designed to surpass even the highest testing standards.
With all of the dedication you put into the health of your skin and hair, it’s important to follow up with the proper care and TLC––your future self with thank you for it!
