3 REMarkable ways that Silk will Revolutionise your Sleep Quality

You have mastered the art of a regimented skin routine, the number of steps you need to walk daily and the litres of water you need to drink to live a healthy lifestyle. Nonetheless, there is one simple antidote that helps hair, skin and your wellbeing the most, sleep. The 6-8 hours of the day where your body recalibrates, rebalances hydration levels and produces collagen leaves skin plump and glowing.

Silk pillowcases can do wonders for your hair, skin and sleep and here's why...

ExtREMely moisturising...

Owning and using a silk pillowcase helps retain moisture in the skin.

Cotton pillowcases are extremely absorbent and pick-up dirt and oil from your skin on your face. When you sleep on the same pillowcase night after night it can lead to clogged pores and nasty breakouts.

Natural silk pillowcases are less absorbent, your skin and hair stay moisturised because your pillowcase isn’t absorbing all the natural oils from your skin - great news for your skincare and bank balance.

Silk naturally contains amino acids that are easily absorbed into the skin which are used in formulating shampoos and conditioners because they create a protective barrier and preserve moisture.

Another big positive for using silk pillowcases are because they are less absorbent which keeps skincare on our face, the serums and moisturisers we apply at bedtime have better chance of staying where they are. A huge relief if you spend a lot of money on evening skincare, we know we are effortlessly reaping those benefits when we are asleep.

REMember, Silk protects your hair

Silk pillowcases are a great way to avoid crazy morning bed hair for both men and women. When you toss and turn at night on a regular pillowcase it can damage the hair follicle and lead to shedding. That leads to less shine and more frizz. However, 100% silk pillowcases retain moisture so waking up to smooth, luscious locks as the material is a lot less rough on the hair due to the antiseptic material of silk.

Why not go the extra mile to keep your hair sleek and soft whilst you sleep and enjoy our no-kinks, no-nagging, no-damage oversized silk scrunchies specially designed to ensure there is less pressure on your hair when tied up.

REMain cool

Silk naturally regulates heat which helps maintain the correct body temperature. 

In summer, silk proteins work with your body to keep the temperature stable, preventing overheating and overnight sweats. On the flip side, on colder nights, silk acts as a great insulator and keeps you toasty warm.

Our pillowcases can be used in all seasons so make sure you take it with you on next staycay. Make sure to post any pictures using your State of REM pillowcase using the hashtag #stateofrem
