What if I told you there was a way to avoid bad hair and skin days all together?
The solution: the Mulberry Silk Pillowcase.
Let’s take a few steps back and paint a bigger picture.
The world is starting to re-open, everybody is gearing up to physically head back into work, meal prep, get the kids ready, and re-establish commuting routines.
Dare I say, this is a little daunting? After a year and half of being inside, new habits (good and bad) have been formed.
And although this may have seemed easy to do once upon a time, it’s not necessarily the case right now.
In some ways, the simplest tasks can feel exhausting to complete. It’s safe to say, we’ve all faced a little bit of burnout and fatigue in some type of way.
After a long day of working, sometimes skipping a few steps in your night routine feels like the best idea. Anything to hit the hay quicker, am I right?
It isn’t until you wake up the next day with a pesky pimple and matted hair to which you realize: it wasn’t worth it.
I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes after I finish my skincare routine, I just want to put on some comfy pajamas and jump into bed...totally neglecting my hair all together.
Here’s where your pillowcase comes into play.
Two birds. One stone.
It’s time to switch out your cotton pillow case for Mulberry Silk.
It’s the material sis, it’s got to go because you’re missing out!
4 AMAZING benefits of silk pillow cases & why you should be opting for one instead:
Improves sleep quality
If you didn’t know, silk is made up of natural proteins. As a result, this helps to reduce insomnia. Just like we talked about before, exhaustion is real.
So, if you struggle with sleep, this is a super quick and easy fix you can try out to improve your sleeping patterns.
Reduces wrinkles AND is anti-aging
Smooth surfaces = less friction. Less friction = less stress on your skin while you get your beauty sleep on.
Just imagine how many times you unconsciously toss and turn your head throughout the evening just to get into a comfy position.
A crease here, a crease there. Before you know it, your cotton pillow has aged you 60 years! Just kidding! But for real, it can add to long term aging effects. So why not reconsider a better material earlier on?
Prevents Skin Irritation
Silk is smoother than cotton so, it's more gentle on sensitive skin. It is also known for absorbing less bacteria and oil than cotton.
For that reason, it helps to prevent acne while still combatting dry skin. If you struggle with inflammation, this will also help to reduce it.
Combats pesky bed hair!
Whether your hair is naturally straight, curly, coily, or wavy, a silk pillowcase is a major helper for reducing frizz and split ends. The secret is that the smoothness from the mulberry silk reduces tangles.
As somebody with naturally textured hair, it is also great for preserving protective styling, maintaining moisture in your hair, reducing breakage, and locking in curls if you don’t wrap your hair at night.
Remember how we talked about sometimes skipping steps in your night routine? Well, rest assured there’s less guilt when using a silk pillowcase.
Go ahead and catch a snooze a little quicker without the fear of waking up like something the cat dragged in. You deserve it.
