If you’re not using a silk pillowcase you’re not doing life right, and your hair is probably frizzy and crap and your skin is definitely dry. Okay, maybe not. Or, you’re just unaware of it. Whatever the case (lol, pun) – they’re good. They’re real good. I was converted 6 months ago, and now I’m like a slightly insane born-again religious follower except I’m not spruiking Jesus, I’m spruiking pillowcases.
“Silk is a non absorbent fabric,” explains Melanie. “It won’t deplete your moisture levels or absorb your serums and night creams, so you’ll wake up with skin that doesn’t have a ‘tight’ feel to it”.
Basically, cotton is absorbent. It’ll take in whatever is on your skin, which can be why you wake feeling like your skin is hectically dry considering you did the full moisture routine the night before.
“Silk pillowcases prolong the life of your blow dry, but they also prevent hair breakage, fly-aways and frizziness,” explains Melanie.
