Why Your Pillowcase Is Failing You And Your Skin
skincare secrets blog
As a skincare fanatic (which I’m sure most of us are), and an overall lover of sleep (which I know all of us are), I know that what we sleep on makes a HUGE difference to our skin.
That's why I've tried almost every pillowcase on the market.
You’re probably thinking the normal cotton pillowcase you sleep on every night is fine enough.
It can’t possibly be hurting my skin, right?
The difference is like night and day, ha!
Having experienced what seems like a skin revolution, curiosity got the better of me and I had to find out what makes Silvi so different.
As it turns out, not all silk is made the same either!
Silvi pillowcases are made from 22-momme, 100% Mulberry silk that have a 6A rating. Who knew silk was graded on an A,B,C scale!? I certainly didn’t! I found out that when you see a silk product graded 6A, you can be sure it’s the highest quality of silk you can buy.
And momme? Well I learnt that this scale of 11-25 describes the silk’s weight and density - when it comes to pillowcases, 11-momme is way too light but 25-momme is too heavy.
Any guesses what I discovered the BEST count to be? Yep, Silvi knows that 22-momme is the perfect balance! Thank YOU Silvi, your pillowcases have my heart.
Oh, did I mention how buttery soft they were too? The added smoothness and comfort to what I was used to improved my sleep quality almost instantly. I came to learn this was just the beginning of discovering the benefits of Silvi Silk…
For so long, I couldn’t work out why I was investing sooo much money into expensive skincare products, only to see no results.
Every night I would carefully do my whole regime (you know the drill: cleanser, toner, serums, moisturiser - maybe even a mask if I’m feeling fancy), a regime which is nothing short of time sparing either! Heck, if I slip in a mask, my routine can take as long as 30 mins!
And then, I understood the reason… everything finally started adding up.
Turns out, all my hard work was for nothing because my pesky cotton pillowcase was literally SOAKING UP all my skincare products AND money the moment I laid my head down!
Thank goodness I learnt that Silvi pillowcases are moisture-wicking! Now my pricey skincare products actually absorb where they’re meant to - a win for my skin AND my wallet!
On top of Silvi’s silk grade is the addition of silver - yep, SILVER, I know! Silvi are super innovative and use Silver Ion Technology to eliminate 99.7% of bacteria, and is what also makes the cases hypoallergenic. Turns out, my pores were no longer being clogged by my pillowcase, allowing my acne to fully clear with no recurring breakouts!
Seriously so impressive.
You bet I had to tell everyone I knew, including you. Apparently, we’ve all been sleeping wrong!
Perhaps though, the real reason Silvi silk stacks up over literally everything else is how good my hair now looks in the mornings.
Since saying goodbye to my high-friction, scratchy cotton case, my hair stays tangle-free throughout the night thanks to the smoothness of the silk. The silk’s natural proteins also mean my hair wakes up to a beautiful, healthy shine. No more bad hair days for me!
So, the verdict?
If you want your friends asking you what new skin and hair products you’ve been using, you can tell them none - the secret is what you’re sleeping on!
Silvi is my new skin, hair & sleep essential, and will no-doubt become yours too.
