It seems like everywhere I turn lately I’m hearing about stain pillowcases. I currently use a “regular” pillowcase, which I’m sure is made from cotton or something. Apparently, satin pillowcases are a game changer when it comes to the beauty world. Besides making you feel like the ultimate princess, here are the three main benefits to sleeping on a satin pillowcase.
1. It’s better for your hair. Since satin is a smooth fabric, your hair won’t get all tangled/bent while sleeping since your hair will “glide” across the fabric. What’s more, your hair won’t break and get frizzy because satin allows the moisture to be retained while cotton absorbs all the moisture from your hair.
2. Smoothes skin. If you sleep on your side or stomach, chances are you wake up with face wrinkles/lines. Unfortunately, as we get older our skin loses elasticity meaning it won’t bounce back as quickly as it used to. You’ll cause unnecessary wrinkles by sleeping on your side/stomach each night, so try switching to a satin pillowcase so your face can slide around and not get stuck in one position. Of course, you might wake up with sleep lines, but not nearly as bad!
3. Preserve your eyelashes. Believe it or not, when you sleep on your side/stomach you’re actually crushing your eyelashes. Much like your hair, cotton pillowcases tug at your eyelashes causing them to crease or bend.
They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing.
