FRIDAY FAVORITE // SILK PILLOWCASE





So I finally gave in and purchased a silk pillowcase. I've been reading for a long time how they prevent wrinkles (silk contains natural proteins that fight skin aging, and prevent sleep creases); and anyone who knows me, knows I will do anything to prevent wrinkles.



Not only do silk pillowcases help with wrinkles, they also:

Are good for your hair: The natural properties of silk can help reduce friction on your hair which often causes damage, like spilt ends. Less friction = less frizz!

Are hypoallergenic: Some of silk’s hypoallergenic properties include a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and mold, in addition to many other allergens. (No joke, I have noticed a considerable decrease in my allergies since I've been using it).

Keeps your skin hydrated: Cotton is very absorbent. It can hold 24-27 times its own weight in water. This means it actually draws moisture away from you skin, drying it out stealing your expensive face cr√®me in the process! When sleeping on silk, your skin is much more hydrated in the morning. 



I purchased  a 100% mulberry charmeuse silk pillowcase from Amazon. It's on sale right now for $22.99 with free shipping!
