Want to wake up FLAWLESS without spending like a celebrity? Now that’s having your cake, and eating it too.
I’ll be honest and admit I have felt less pretty after scrolling through instagram comparing myself to supermodels and or celebrities with perfect hair and skin #wokeuplikethis selfies. I think to myself, “How is it possible to have perfectly clear skin and shiny, frizz-free hair?”. “Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s photoshop.” The answer: Silk and or Satin Pillowcases! Now this is a beauty trend worth ditching the photoshop and 8 different filters for.
Sleeping on silk or satin pillowcases keeps hair shiny and skin wrinkle-free. Studies have shown that the friction from sleeping on harsh fabrics like cotton, wool, and flannel cause deep lines on your face resulting in permanent wrinkles. Cotton pillowcases can also be a result of stubborn acne because they absorb makeup residue, natural oils, and sweat as you sleep. This results in clogged pores and dry skin. YIKES! However, a silky smooth surface can prevent fine lines around the forehead, eyes, and mouth without absorbing moisture from your skin. Similarly, hair glides back and forth on a smooth surface preventing frizzy, brittle, and damaged hair. So save your money on expensive creams, facials, and blowouts by sleeping on silk or satin pillowcases.
Satin vs. Silk???
Silk and satin are extremely soft materials. Though both are soft, they’re quite different. Silk is natural, satin is artificial.
Silk is made from cocoons of silk worms. The animal protein fiber from building cocoons and webs is removed and made into threads. Silk is one of nature’s softest fabrics in the world. Fascinating right?! Satin is a man-made product produced from many types of materials like nylon, polyester, and even silk.
When comparing silk and satin:
•Silk is more durable than satin
•Satin is cheaper than silk
•Both share the same benefits
Bottom line, always wake up on the right side of the bed with this top beauty trend!
