Get glowing skin and luscious locks while you sleep with a peace silk pillowcase.
Who knew that you could get a great night’s sleep and improve your beauty routine with the help of one product?
If you dream of glowing skin and a restful night, a peace silk pillowcase should be your next investment.
You may not think about how important the materials you sleep on are for your beauty routine, but choosing the right sleep accessories will help you to drift off to sleep while keeping your hair and skin looking healthy for years to come.
At White Lotus, we’ve discovered that the real secret to perfect skin and sleep lies in where you lay your head at the end of the day – your pillowcase.
There are many different options out there when it comes to pillowcases, but choosing the right one can seem like a daunting prospect. But, really, the most important thing is to choose the right material.
And when it comes to natural, ethical pillowcase materials, there’s only one real option – silk. Not only is silk super comfortable, and extra luxurious, it also offers some seriously impressive beauty benefits.
We use peace silk in all of our silk pillowcases and eye masks. It’s one of the more ethical options but still feels as smooth and glossy as other forms of silk.
Here’s everything you need to know about what is ahimsa silk and why a silk pillowcase is something you should invest in this year.
How is peace/ahimsa silk made?
When peace silk is made, the moth is allowed to pierce the cocoon and leave. This is different from traditional methods where the moth is normally boiled alive inside the cocoon.
Silk comes from silkworms, but you may not know that there actually quite a few different types of silk. It all depends on the way the silkworms are reared to produce the material.
Is ahimsa peace silk the most ethical silk?
Yes, ahimsa peace silk is probably the most ethical silk you can buy. Most methods of rearing silk aren’t very kind to the animals, however, peace silk is made in a much more humane process that promotes animal welfare.
Because it’s more humane, peace silk is also known as ‘ahimsa’ silk, which translates to ‘non-violent’. The ethical extraction of peace silk makes it a good choice for people who care about the treatment of animals and want to make conscious choices when it comes to the products they buy.
What benefits can you get from an ethical silk pillowcase?
Peace silk pillowcases are known for having a variety of health and beauty benefits like hydrating the skin, strengthening your hair, nourishing your scalp, and reducing redness while you sleep which is why dermatologists and facialists recommend them to so many people.
Ahimsa silk pillowcases not only look beautiful, but they can also work wonders on your skin and hair – all while you’re asleep.
Here are just some of the reasons you should start using an ethical peace silk pillowcase:
Keeps your body temperature cool while you sleep
Natural fibres like silk are much more breathable, which is ideal for your bedding. When your skin is cooler, you sweat less, which makes your skin less prone to redness and inflammation.
Often, the materials that are used in pillowcases can trap heat and cause temperatures to rise while you’re sleeping.
Cool temperatures are generally ideal during sleep as it helps to de-puff your skin and keep it looking bright and glowing.
Ethical silk helps your skincare products do their job
Ethical silk is much less absorbent than your typical pillowcase materials it won’t absorb all of your skincare products while you’re sleeping. With a peace silk pillowcase, you can make sure your products stay where they are supposed to be: on your face.
If you’ve spent lots of money on your skincare products, and diligently applied them all before going to sleep, the last thing you want is for them to rub straight off as soon as you lie down in bed.
De-frizzes your hair
Some pillowcases can be really rough on your hair, causing frizz and damage without you even realising it. Silk is an anti-static material, so even if you’re up tossing and turning all night, you never have to worry about your hair looking messy in the morning.
If you ever wake up to your hair looking unkempt and frizzy, the main culprit may be your pillowcase.
Ahimsa peace silk helps strengthen your hair
The smooth texture of a natural silk pillowcase is gentle and can even protect your hair – the proteins in silk have been shown to adhere to the keratin in our hair to keep each strand strong and healthy.
Ahimsa silk alleviates symptoms of eczema and dermatitis
Silk pillowcases can alleviate the symptoms of eczema and dermatitis, this is because it’s much smoother on the skin and doesn’t cause as much irritation. Other materials like cotton can cause a lot of friction that can aggravate sensitive skin.
So if you suffer from sensitive skin or other skin conditions, natural fibres like silk are the best things to invest in.
Retain your youthful glow for longer
Gentle silk pillowcases are great for reducing skin creasing overnight which is one of the causes of premature wrinkles – which we’re all trying to avoid. Silk pillowcases are so effective because they limit the amount of friction that is caused to your skin while you’re sleeping.
We all want to grow old gracefully, and an ethical silk pillowcase could be the secret to keeping a youthful glow for years to come.
Ethical, natural silk hydrates your skin and your scalp
While you’re dreaming away, your silk pillowcase will be working hard to protect your skin’s moisture barrier and protect the fragile upper layers of your skin. The fibres in silk nourish your skin and scalp so you don’t have to worry about getting dry overnight.
The result? Radiant, glowing skin that makes you look well-rested and super youthful every day — even if you’re not a morning person usually.
