Skincare: Is your pillowcase sabotaging your AM/PM skincare routine?
You know the importance of a good skincare routine when it comes to maintaining a more youthful complexion over the years, but did you know that your pillowcase could be sabotaging your efforts? If you're using a Mayfairsilk pillowcase, you can rest easy knowing that your skincare routine is working for you, not against you.
The inconvenient truth about cotton pillowcases:
Cotton pillowcases are often the culprit when it comes to interfering with your skincare routine. Cotton is highly absorbent, which means that all the skincare products you apply before bed could be absorbed by your pillowcase instead of your skin. This can result in excess oil, acne, and other skin concerns.
Additionally, cotton pillowcases can rob your skin of moisture, leaving you with dry, itchy skin. If you're treating acne, cotton pillowcases can increase your risk of breakouts by absorbing the products you use on your skin.
Cotton pillowcases can also accelerate sleep creases or wrinkles on your face and their absorbent nature creates a film of moisture in which dust mites and bacteria breed. Dust mites are a large cause of allergies. And it's not just your skin that's affected by cotton pillowcases. They can also leave your hair dry and damaged.
Your AM/PM skincare routine should leave you with healthy, glowing skin, but sometimes that's not the case. If you have sensitive skin, acne-prone skin, or other skin issues, it may be time to consider switching to a Mayfairsilk pillowcase.
The silk pillowcase solution
Switching out your cotton pillowcase to one crafted from the highest grade Mulberry silk in 25 momme such as Mayfairsilk can provide many benefits for your skin and hair.
Silk is non-absorbent, so you won't lose skincare products to your pillowcase overnight. It's also soft and smooth, reducing your risk of sleep wrinkles and creases. And silk retains moisture, so your skin won't feel dry and irritated in the morning.
To make the most of your luxurious pillowcase, choose skincare ingredients that stimulate collagen production, like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Use gentle cleansers and other products to avoid irritating your skin. And if you wear makeup, make sure to thoroughly remove it before bed to reduce the risk of breakouts.
Additional benefits for your hair
Transitioning from a cotton pillowcase to the unparalleled quality of silk for your nightly slumber can significantly enhance the health and luster of your hair. A restful night on a silk pillowcase can help curb unnecessary hair frizz and tangling, as it doesn't sap your hair of its natural moisture like cotton. Consequently, your scalp won't overproduce sebum to make up for the dryness, preventing your hair from becoming overly greasy. Additionally, the preservation of your hair's innate hydration coupled with a reduction in friction often results in fewer split ends and less hair breakage with additional shine.
