We usually spend at least 6 hours every night with our faces on our pillowcases. Whether we’re using cotton, bamboo, linen, whatever we’re using it’s making us sick and it’s damaging our hair and skin.
Almost all pillowcases absorb moisture. When you sleep at night, dead skin flakes off, sweat gets absorbed, oils from your skin and hair get absorbed, and any products or serums you put on before bed get absorbed as well. All of this builds up in your pillowcase and creates an absolute cesspool of harmful bacteria. This bacteria can make you sick, and damage your skin and hair. For instance your skin can develop blemishes, clogged pores, and become very oily. While your hair can become very dirty and greasy. This can all put significant stress on your immune system because your body has to fight off this harmful bacteria.
Friction from pillowcases can also harm your hair and skin. Friction from your pillowcase can cause severe damage to your skin and your hair. Whenever you move, even just a little while you sleep, your face and hair get dragged against your pillowcase. Your hair becomes tangled, you’ll have more breakages overnight and it’ll become even drier than it was (more on that in a moment). Your face becomes irritated and you’ll even develop sleep wrinkles. Sleep wrinkles are made when the pillowcase fabric actually tugs and grabs onto your skin due to friction. That, paired with the weight of your head is what causes the skin to fold creating a sleep wrinkle.
Sleep wrinkles by the way become more permanent on your face while you age. They won’t go away.
All of this because of friction.
But those same pillowcases also suck the moisture from your hair and skin as well as any lotions or serums you put on before bed.
This causes your hair and skin to dry out and create a filthy breeding ground for bacteria in the fabric of the pillowcase. So, when your face and hair rub against this dirty surface while you sleep, you end up with clogged pores, breakouts, inflamed dry skin, and greasy dirty hair.
You may have your skin care and hair care routine locked down, but if you’re using one of these pillowcases it’s making your job so much harder and you’re probably not seeing any kind of lasting results from your regimen.
Enter Ayurdeva’s 100% pure Mulberry Silk (25 momme) sleep accessories – pillow cases and sleep masks. Silk Pillowcases are made out of the highest quality and highest rated silk you can buy. Because of this, none of that negative stuff mentioned above.
Silk pillowcases won’t absorb moisture, all of those things mentioned earlier won’t build up in the pillowcase. The surface of the pillowcase will stay much cleaner so you can be better protected against sickness, and at the same time it’ll keep your skin and hair much healthier.
Allergens and dust mites can’t embed or attach themselves to the fabric either. This makes the pillowcase hypoallergenic so your immune system won’t have to fight off these intruders.
The silky smooth finish helps produce no friction. It won’t tug or pull on your hair and skin while you sleep. You won’t get tangles, breakages, frays, or skin irritation.
