With my birthday coming up, I do my yearly “what can do I to prevent aging?” with regards to my skincare etc. I am trying to drink more water, cut down my sugar consumption and of course my religious devotion to sunscreen(I cannot stress this enough always use sunscreen!) are helping but I am starting to notice some unfortunate things. 

Celestial Silk Pillowcase

Sometimes when I wake up in the morning I find creases in my face from my pillowcase. They fade after a while but I can’t help but think of the cumulative effect this is having on my skin.  Amazingly there is a solution. I was gifted a fantastic Celestial Silk pillowcase.   It is rumored Marilyn Monroe insisted on silk bedding and was famously photographed in a bed of silk sheets by Douglas Kirkland. Visit their site here.

Hair stylists, beauticians and dermatologists recommend silk pillowcases to keep hair smooth and skin moisturized and clear.

What a perfect gift. Pampering and practical – and it happens while sleeping. I found them to be extremely comfortable and no face wrinkles in the morning! And a bonus side effect my hair was considerable less tangled. I didn’t know this but the dense nature of silk means face cream and oils applied at night won’t be absorbed by the pillowcase. Other materials can literally draw moisture from your hair and face during the night. 

I had no idea but they are great for allergy suffers (my allergies are SO BAD this year). Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and is among the top bedding choice for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. Because of silk’s natural protein structure and other natural substances, pure mulberry silk, including dust mites, mold, mildew, bed bugs and bacteria. I’m going to save up for the matching sheets!

Silk naturally regulates body temperature so that your body retains its warmth during cold weather.  Pure silk sheets also have moisture wicking properties which help to keep you dry and comfortable in the warmer months. Silk sheets are very breathable and are recommended by women health experts to alleviate hot flashes (they’re coming for me soon).
