‘I need to get my beauty sleep’. How many times have you said that exact statement when you gone off to bed, without thinking about what it means? We all know that a good night’s sleep is important, and that we spend around one third of our lifetime in bed, but are we really getting the best night’s sleep, and do we wake up and actually look refreshed, or do we look like we’ve been dragged through an edge sometime during the night.
Calidad Home ask that question of us, and suggest that, if the answer is the later, you really need to be switching to a Mulberry silk pillowcase. A silk pillowcase would most definitely be classed as a luxury item, but it also has benefits that can lead to you looking and feeling better. Calidad explains that ‘…100% Mulberry silk pillowcase is an unparalleled combination of luxury, quality, thickness and durability…’ and these qualities make it the perfect choice when you want to treat yourself to the best possible nights sleep.
So what makes a silk pillowcase such a treat? We all know that sleep isn’t sound – we move around a lot in the night, twisting and turning our head as we do so. Cotton pillowcases pull the skin on your face as you move, dragging the skin and causing lines, this is avoided on silk as your face and skin glide across it more smoothly. In addition, cotton can actually be dehydrating as it both pulls the moisture from your skin and then absorbs it. This can lead to your skin feeling really dry when you wake up. Silk doesn’t do this, so your skin can actually feel nice and soft when you wake up.
I found the pillowcase extremely comfortable to sleep on, with a lovely feeling under my face. It felt like a luxury item, and with the zipper concealed on the side, it was very comfortable too. I chose a beautiful soft pink shade for my pillowcase, but the design comes in a range of colours to match your taste and bedroom decor. I also love the fact that my hair was less knotted and messy sleeping on this pillowcase. I have long hair and often wake up with tangles, especially if my sleep has been restless, I definitely find this to be much less the case after a night on my Mulberry pillowcase. Another real bonus when it comes to beauty sleep.
In our current times, our sleep can be compromised by worries and restlessness, so a silk pillowcase is one way to help it along.
