Silk: The Little-Known Beauty Secret!
A natural protein fiber that's often thought of as a beautifully crafted material utilized to make a variety of finely-crafted garments and accessories, silk has more to offer than you might think! It's best-known for coming from silkworms & caterpillars; however silk is actually produced from several insects- including arachnids, like spiders :0 Firstly produced in ancient China, with the earliest noted production from 3630 BC and were originally reserved for royalty, such as the Emperor. Today, the silk is produced and sold all over the world and is still revered for its beauty & quality.
The wonderful thing about silk, is that it's not just a pretty fabric...it's fabulous for the skin too! How exactly? For starters, it allows the skin to breath! Fabrics such as cotton and nylon don't exactly help with preventing clogged pores as you sleep throughout the night; sweat has nowhere to go, for example. And if you have super sensitive skin- like myself, this is a highly recommended pillowcase material choice as well. Cotton pillowcases can actually draw moisture out of the skin and leave it more parched then when you laid down for the night :( Prevent inflammation and reduce breakouts with silk and do it in comfort!
Plus, as an added bonus, silk offers up the benefits of anti-aging properties as the material won't tug at the skin and decreases skin creasing and pulling- which can help keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Lastly, reduce friction on your hair while sleeping, by using a silk pillowcase as it can end up reducing breakage and frizz too! That makes silk a beauty win!
