This week we’re discussing the health benefits we get from our range of silk products. Whether it’s bedding, cushions, or women’s robes, there are multiple reasons to invest in silk.
Silk is always a pleasure to touch your skin, however, experts have evidence that suggests it could also slow down aging. The fabric contains a natural protein, as well as a variety of essential amino acids. Studies have concluded that amino acids may make wrinkles appear smoother and smoother as the nervous system becomes more relaxed.
Silk also contains chemical albumen, which speeds up the skin’s metabolism, so that skin cells grow and repair. It isn’t able to absorb moisture also, which is a good thing when you apply creams and serums before getting to bed. Also, while cotton pillows may absorb some of the creams, silk pillowcases are sure that it’s absorbed as you lay down.
The material is also particularly helpful for those suffering from skin conditions like eczema. Other bedding materials could cause skin irritations such as eczema overnight by causing the skin to become overheated, and thereby reducing the moisture. But silk is soft smooth and soft, and it allows your body to hold in moisture and reduce the risk of drying and irritating your skin at night.
Silk’s natural characteristics and its double-stranded fibers resemble human hair, which explains why silk is ideal for keeping the temperature of your body cool. Silk offers a comfortable, and insulating barrier between your body and the ambient temperature that keeps you cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
Silk pillowcases provide considerable advantages to the health of your hair. Although silk does not absorb liquids, its moisture-wicking characteristics help move excess moisture and grease away from your skin. It also ensures that your hair is dry and devoid of grease after a while. The smoothness of the material will also lessen the loss of hair which can lead to possible split ends. Cotton can cause tension between your head of yours and your pillow, which leads to frazzled, damaged hair. The anti-static properties of the material also prevent your hair from knotting.
