We often associate our beauty and skincare regimen with different lotions and potions, but sleeping on a pure silk pillowcase also has a number of beauty benefits.
Bed hair be gone!
For the longest time, I’ve slept on cotton pillowcases. However, I would always wake up with knots in my hair and frizz. It was not cute. This is because cotton doesn’t allow your hair to glide smoothly across your pillow as your toss and turn throughout the night. Hair gets tangled and that is how bed hair is formed. However, with a silk pillowcase, my hair moves freely throughout the night and by morning, I’m left with smoother and straighter hair!
Bed face be gone!
I sleep on my side and this means the skin on the side of my face is constantly being rubbed against the pillow. Sometimes I would wake up with visible creasing on my face and although it does go away after a few minutes, imagine the effect this could have over time! We spend a 1/3 of our life sleeping and if our skin is being constantly creased, wrinkles are essentially being ironed into our skin.
Silk pillowcases don’t cause any creasing on your skin because its ultra smooth texture doesn’t tug at your skin. The pillowcase doesn’t bunch up as you rub your face against the pillow overnight. Since silk is also breathable and less absorbent to moisture, it also means that all the expensive lotions and potions you apply before bed does not end up on your pillowcase.
Ecosa Silk Pillowcase Review
It’s important to know that not all silk are of equal quality. To get the best effect out of your silk pillowcase, you need to choose the right material. So I did a bit of research and discovered Ecosa. Ecosa is an Australian company that specializes in making premium mattresses, but they also have a collection of silk pillowcases to compliment their product line.
Ecosa’s silk pillowcases are different because it uses the world’s thickest silk at 25-momme. This means that Ecosa’s pillowcases are 3x more durable than most silk products in the market.When I first unboxed the pillowcase, the first thing I noticed was the thickness of the material. If I’m going to spending $59 on a pillowcase, I want to make sure that it will last through many washes.
This pillowcase is so smooth. If I can glide my hands up and down this pillowcase all day, I would. It’s cool to the touch which feels amazing to lie on and the colour charcoal matches the rest of my bedding.
I’ve also noticed that the pillowcase is quite resistant to staining. I use different oils and creams before bed and I haven’t noticed any transfer on the pillow. It’s amazing!
Sleeping is now a delight with my new pillowcase! Shipping was super fast (within 2 days for Sydney Metropolitan). Why don’t you give it a try today and see if you notice a difference too?
